jonnnney: Do republicans really not know what google is? Here is a map of the Montgomery county, the county Houston TX is in, early voting locations http://co.montgomery.tx.us/election/pdf/EV2012.pdf?ts=1023345692 . No where on this map is the address referenced in the article.


The location is legit even if the story is bullshiat. It's Harris County. The street name is Montgomery.

James F. Campbell: I live in Mississippi, where they tried to pass a voter ID law.


Identification is a lame way to identify someone.

James F. Campbell: The secretary of state and governor have both made ambiguous statements with the purposeful intention of confusing people


Citation?

James F. Campbell: What should I do if the blue-haired old biatches down at the church I vote in ask me for a photo ID? Is it legal for me to record them? Who should I report them to?


You are asking what to do if an old lady asks if you will show ID (the same thing ppl want to see for cigs, booze, tickets at will call etc)? Is this type of conflict resolution so insurmountable you ask FARK for help????

Please, just don't vote.

James F. Campbell: Hey, I'd like one of you lawyer types with a GED in law to help me out here. I live in Mississippi, where they tried to pass a voter ID law. It hasn't been implemented yet because the DoJ has to review it first before it can take effect (due to Mississippi's long history of disenfranchising certain segments of the population). The secretary of state and governor have both made ambiguous statements with the purposeful intention of confusing people as to whether or not a photo ID is necessary to vote during this election (it isn't).

What should I do if the blue-haired old biatches down at the church I vote in ask me for a photo ID? Is it legal for me to record them? Who should I report them to?


MS is a one-party consent state for recording. As far as to whom you report them to, I think it's the Board of Elections.

/As if they will do anything.

stpickrell: Fark Me To Tears: Sorry, subby. In Virginia, the boundary is 40 feet from any entrance to a polling place.

I used to vote at a school where people would stand just outside the legal boundary handing out party "voting guides." They would hand one of these to you, you would walk into the school and immediately an election volunteer would start yelling at you because you're not supposed to have the campaign literature in public view. It was literally 10 seconds between the time it was handed to you and the time you got chewed out for having it in your hand.

God Bless Democracy.

I'm an election officer in VA. Voters are allowed to wear/carry whatever election-related things they darn well want. They're not allowed to talk to other voters, the election officers, or the partisan observers about politics (*), although "Hey, how's your son doing" would be ok. But you're certainly allowed to carry the sample ballots in your hand.

Jokes are sort of ok. Joking about voting often, or about the paper ballot machine being a shredder. is nowhere in the same league as joking about having a bomb while at the airport, for example.

(*) especially the partisan observers, they're not allowed to start up conversations.

Remember folks, 90% of the stuff is volunteers and/or people making a cool $50-$150 a day for this. Throw in thousands of lawyers, vigilantes, etc., and it's amazing our elections proceed as well as they do.


I hate having to run the gauntlet of those fools just to vote. I find if I square up my shoulders, scowl, and walk fast they don't try too hard to hand me a "sample" ballot. What I want to do is kick them.

Houston is Harris County, but there's a small part of it that slops over into Montgomery. "6719 W. Montgomery Road, Houston" pops this in Google Maps. Looks like there's plenty at that address, including an early voting site.

Stop trying to make Democrats look like idiots.

How about moving your supporters to the front of the line?

I like it when people vote and drink water too. It really depends on the person and the situation as to whether or not I find it all that good to see people drinking water. Everyone should have good water to drink.

Some nebulous "downtown" figure? If people were advocating for their candidate inside the polling station then she should have called the local police or county sheriff's office. If this is bonafide, why did she not do that? The story just stops.


This is the Daily Caller. The chances that anything like what is described actually happened are infinitessimal.
And, of course, the story makes no sense.
 
2012-11-04 06:05:23 AM
So subby's "violation" is that they were wearing NAACP clothing? That's it? Sure they talked about flying to DC to promote Obama, but I see no mention of them doing that in this story. They wore the clothes, which aren't political, and handed out water. Not sure where the 'moving people to the front of the line' thing comes into play, but the story is pretty vague there. As your submission stands, Subby, your premise fails. Unless you're playing the racist angle and assuming that a person who supports the NAACP is going to automatically vote for Obama. Sounds a little bit 'you people' for a party that tries to convince the world on an hourly basis that they are not racist and would NEVER make an assumption based on the color of one's skin.

So glad this got greenlit, I'm sure it was FAR more worthy than every other submission.
 
2012-11-04 06:10:36 AM
My bad. It's not the Daily KKKaller" - it's KKKlownhall.
Same shiat. More desperate lies from the panicking, defeated Right. There will be a hundred of these made up stories in the next two days. And one or two legit ones - but we won't have any way of knowing most of the time. This is obviously fake because the story makes no sense, and has factual errors. Most we see will be more obscure.
