If you having a great time voting or notice some kind of questionable behavior, share it here!! The WORLD needs to know!!
NW Arkansas. Took over an hour the line was so long, I’ve never experienced that in the 12 years I lived here. Afterwards I was stopped by a chunky older Hispanic man with a cane who was thinking of giving up, we chatted a little and he said “Last time I voted, I voted for Trump! Because he is a good man, and I am a Christian. Conservative!” Turns out the man is Cuban too, born under communism, so that always helps, kek. I told him to go in and ask for assistance since he had a disability. Hopefully he got in and didn’t have to navigate that huge line.
South central TX here, showed up with one hour remaining at our local polling location, big line all around the building, voters were all respectful & civilized, poll workers were cheerful (and I’m sure exhausted hah). Anyway, everything went well, printed my own ballot from the machine & fed it into the counting machine. My inputs were recorded correctly & everything seemed to be done properly. God bless 🐸
scott county minnesota, last election I was low 300 person just before closing, tonight I was #792 at 6:30pm. huge turnout!!! sadly the corrupt demonrats, particularly asshat walz, ellison, etc. are way ahead right now... and felt tip pens in booths. no ID required, that started after TRUMP won
I was a poll worker. Huge turnout in a small town. People were voting angry. Poll workers who live in that town kept seeing people voting they'd never seen at the polls before.
Crook county Illinois, handing out sharpies as usual. Lady said be careful they can bleed through. I used my own pen. The media called it for demonrat Pritzker minutes after the polls closed wth zero results in based on exit polling too. Called it for Clammy Duckworthless too.
I saw maga hats, not a single kool aid hair
I thought wearing political clothing or accessories to vote was a big no no.
If people were wearing MAGA hats to vote, then that must be a very based area.
Was yelled at by two workers for being in my phone while signing in to vote. I was checking for oddities in available WI-FI. Georgia
Did you find any wifi irregularities?
I made a post about what qualifies a poll worker. One of our poll workers husband's was a circuit Court Judge, pedo. Killed himself once it was found out in front of her. When a friend of his called and said authorities were on the way. It was her niece. Yet she is allowed to be poll worker. This about a year or so ago small rural community big news here. I find something wrong with it. And the other issue I ousted about.
I just want to know, why should anyone with any kind of pedophile anything surrounding them be a poll worker. It was Her Husband. He Was a judge!
Maybe she had no idea? Idk I sure as heck wouldn’t want to be punished my whole life for the misfortune of marrying a monster.
Small community. Her niece. She did. And, no, I wouldn't want to either. I could see it , if a big city etc.. this is a very little community ( rural) everyone knows everyone. Everyone knows who's doing what and who.
Held my nose and voted for Palin over Begich in RCV…. Both suck, but not as well as Pertola …
And trust me, Mukowski will win, not because she has an (R)…. So fucking SICK of the political games 🤬🤦♀️🤷♀️
Juat got back from Poll watching at my local precinct in Western PA. Oz outperformed Mastriano who out performed the other state and local candidates. For the dems Shapiro out performed Fetterman hard. Turn out was about 5% below 2020, but R beat D by a massive margin in every race. We had people voting we haven't had vote in a decade.
Same here in the 72nd
My husband and I voted in Virgina. We live in a right leaning area but people commute to DC. It's honesty pretty deep state.
As we were scanning our ballots the masked man watching the machine was approached by an unmasked woman who seemed to be a poll watcher. She told him he had to stop throwing out ballots because she needed to count them. The man didn't seem surprised. I think he knew he wasn't supposed to be throwing them out...
you should've called the hotline
Edit: with my Sister to vote. Rural town in Southern Georgia, one of the poll workers, husband's killed himself because he was not Only a Circuit Court Judge, But a Pedo! They let me walk into the booth with her to vote! Pretty sure, this isn't right? She should've Never been able to be a poll Worker! This only happened a year or so ago! And , isn't only 1 person allowed in a booth? Asking for a friend!?!?
Posted this in own thread but here is the body of text.
Happened in Maricopa County AZ.
The printer is printing a few squares on the border of the ballot light (not completely black). When waiting in line to put the ballot in the machine, the poll watchers are advising of this problem and telling people that if they have a grey square to color it in until completely black.
I tested this and the machine would not take the ballot. Went and colored it in, stood back in line, and the machine took the ballot.
One poll watcher said that this was happening to every ballot this morning and they didn’t cast a single ballot for 2 hours.
They said they’ve changed printers, toner, and cleaned the printers and the problem is still occurring 8 hours later.
Handed out voter guides most of the day at a precinct, met candidates who were stopping at polling places. More new voters (identified by their lack of knowledge which of several paths to take to enter) and all the newbies happily accepted the GOP flyers. Happy is also how I'd describe the R voters in general, the D voters (identified by wide avoidance or vehement rejection of literature) were quite unhappy people.
Seriously angrily unhappy, with tight mouths, long angry frowns, deep furrows in their brows and cheeks, stiff shoulders, glaring looks of hate or disdain...
SWFL here. Paper ballots and bic pens. Poll workers were well organized and confirmed my ID & picture and called me by my name from my ID. They scanned my ID, had me sign and compared signature. I was given my ballot, waited briefly and went to my cubby to vote. There was a sign in my cubby that said the ballots had an optical scan laser watermark. Lots of bic pens in each cubby. Fed my ballot into the machine and left.
As a side note, our local library had a Republican booth set up with info on which RINO/Woke judges to vote out on the amendments
In Chicago voted this morning. Brought my voting card, didn't need ID which is wrong. Signed individual sheet then sent to proper area to vote. Showed voter card again. Person found my name, handed me a Sharpie and two ballots with the cover to take and fill in at the voting booth.
When finished, I took the ballots and scanned them myself into the machine with an attendant who watches. Both ballots scanned perfectly without issue. I do wonder if there would be issues were Chicago a battleground/swing area.
I brought my own pen, lady who gave me a sharpie said careful, they can bleed through. So they know, then they can adjudicate them. Who am I kidding, I'm sure they just do whatever the fuck they want to do with the numbers. Sorry, I'm pissed that they called it for fat fuck pritzker minutes after the polls closed with no results in.
Mine bled through no matter how careful I was. It didn't affect the other side's ballot circle but who knows, it is Chicago.
Apparently the crime in Chicago isn't bad enough for this shithole. I saw several libs mocking farmer Bailey. Enjoy the crime assholes!
My husband, son and I all went to vote and it went smoothly. Saw nothing noteworthy for cheating.
Hubby and I voted around 1pm today. There was line considering it was a mid-term general election. LOL We both voted straight Republican ticket, and we voted in all new school board members. Had no problems. Voted on a screen, then did a review of my vote, printed it out, then fed it through a machine that counted our vote. Needed ID and signature. Feeling good here in IN.
My experience was very similar in WV! A long wait, and only two machines (one of which froze and had to be restarted) but everything else was smooth!
Pennsylvania..I went to sign my name and they had let someone sign in the wrong spot..my spot. Told me to sign above her name. Affirmative action poll worker never spoke a word lady next to her guiding her. I read my name looking at it upside down. I'm betting she wasnt even a citizen. Or just illiterate.
So how did you vote then?
ID small town, poll challenger morning to afternoon, noticed no fuckery afoot in the polling area. Smoothly ran. Biggest thing we had was a boundary voting call where dude lived literally in-between voting districts! Poor guy had to drive 25 miles to go vote in the other one!
Tn small town: got there late, at around 6 pm. There were 3 other people there. No line no wait.
No ossues with the voting itself. It was a quick, easy process.
I just voted a little bit ago and all was well except while I was looking at the notes I made for the amendments we had to vote for (12 of them - 10 amendments, another one that didn't have a number & a referendum), my phone started acting up, like my notes page was flickering and had to close the note app. Went to my settings to wifi, took a screenshot of page when all the wifi spots popped up. Went back to my notes and it was fine. But that was strange. The wifi picked up a printer, the wifi of the church we were in, name of church/guest(?) & "other"(?).
Oh and after I got my ID checked and I signed the worker gave me a slip of paper to take to the table to get my ballot... take a wild guess what my number was!!!
3 people: same address: 2 different precincts. wtf?
same as the one we had sounds like, house is on the boundary line
First year it was like that. They must've switched something. Boundary cuts north from south. Weird AF.
they switched boundaries for some states just for this election ....
So my house is in the cross hairs? 😱
lol dont worry they prob got an early vote cast in your name like they did to me in 2020
Sharpie pens in Yates County NY otherwise very top notch staff
I kept my dock safety jacket on . Big pockets full of pens... just incase
we all used pens no pencils this go around
You were given pencils to vote with before? That just seems like a horribly bad idea.
Voted at 6:30 PM EST State: Pennsylvania They didn’t ask me for an ID, they claimed that their “ID SCANNER” was offline/malfunctioning. They were whispering and pointing fingers at the rest of my family. I saw the number that Greg phillips provided and I made the report however, I am not comfortable with that number as she only asked for my name City and state. She never asked me for the polling location’s address. Super frustrated here. Does anyone know a better number whom I can report this to?
Voted at 8:30am EST Northern Indiana. Knew one of the workers personally. No one under 45 yrs old. No Diebold or dominion machines, but still electronic. :\
Knew several people there. Was not roo crowded. Good atmosphere. Everyone I talked to today had a sense of urgency, "Go vote! Go vote!"
All in all, a good experience.
Update: yes, ID was required and voters registration had to be up-to-date, as in put in 60 days befor vote day to be elligible to vote in that election.
Yes, central IN here. I had to verify my name, address and sign my name as well as produce my ID. We voted on electronic screens; it did a check on the vote we chose. Printed it out with my vote selection. Then put it through a machine that counted the vote...so they said.
Well, I voted. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I went kind of late. Same Infinity MicroVote tablets they always have.
I did notice there was a state Constitutional Amendment that apparently barred priests and pastors from serving in government. I voted no, as I suspect this is a way for Rabbis and Muslim Clerics to get in.
So, the same stories here that we are seeing on patriots.win:
You go to the polling place and you are told that the scannes, or other machines, just aren't working right but that's okay. If you don't want to wait for them to be fixed, you can drop your paper ballot into this big plastic bin. We'll take it to the counting center downtown and your vote will be counted, we promise!
And for that paper ballot, be sure to use this nice felt-tip marker so it can bleed through your two-sided ballot. That way, we can cancel your vote and recreate your ballot ourselves for the Democrats.
I got the exact same thing in Maricopa County AZ. Am also seeing stories from TX, PA, MI, and IL right now.
Felt tip markers in El Paso County, CO as well, and in 2020 as well. Haven’t been notified my vote was counted and voted at 9:45am. I used my own black ballpoint pen.
Lord Jesus, Stop this madness and evil RIGHT NOW PLEASE!! Send Your angels to intervene everywhere there is i interference and dishonesty and evil within the voting in the USA. In Your Almighty and All Powerful . Name, Amen
Voted just before lunchtime in Tulsa, a good experience. Three ladies ran the polling place and the youngest was 65-70, the oldest looked to be pushing 90. Ballpoint pens were provided to fill-in the ballots in those ridiculous corrugated cardboard pop-up voting booths. One man was filling out his ballot and another casting his as I walked in. There were no WiFi networks that I could detect and no Ethernet cables in sight. I was in and out in exactly ten minutes.
I asked a poll worker how they prevent someone who mailed in a vote from voting in person, and they said it would show up in their list of voters. Do they really go through all the early votes before voting day and enter into the system who cast early votes? I don't think so.
Here in NC we got a printed out list of all the voters who voted absentee (including early voters) delivered to our precinct just before we opened. But our computers would also flag them, too.
Here they do. Just saying. Source: first hand knowledge.
Not sure if this is normal but posting here.
The print copy list of names as "write-ins" posted inside booth did not contain the Political Affiliation. The print out looked to be county generated. This is the first time I observed this because I took the poll watcher course and they said in every booth look for this piece of paper. So not sure if they were supposed to put the party or not?
I was not given an option to select all Red for a quick and easy out.
I had to scroll through all the uncontested spots page after page. Over 100 Democrats unopposed and hit accept.
Sadly my county only had #179 voter at the time I arrived by 2PM in comparison to the Primary I was about #59. My county has about 4M people.
I voted this morning in Maricopa County, in a polling place with an older demographic (they're usually more efficient and a little nicer, lol.)
I arrived around 11 a.m. The estimate was about 50 (yes, fifty) voters waiting in line. There was a personable older gentleman explaining to the waiting voters that the scanning machines - the ones that you feed your completed paper ballot into - were malfunctioning. He said they kept rejecting ballots, and you could either keep trying or you could drop your ballot into the bin.
I waited in line for probably 45 minutes. Check-in was no problem; they machine-scanned my drivers license and it came up correctly. By the time I finger-signed on the screen, my paper ballot was printed out. It is a two-sided ballot, with most of the candidates on one side and all of the propositions on the other.
In the booths - which out here are just tall tray tables with cardboard shields around them - there were slim little felt-tip markers. They weren't specifically "Sharpies," and at first glance might look like regular ball-point pens. They weren't. I brought my own black ball-point pen and used that.
The scanning machine did take my ballot on the first try. What it did with it, or with the names I voted for, I have no idea.
Back outside, I asked the personable gentleman about the rumors that agents from the DOJ would be in Arizona polling places, among others. He said he did not know of any "but I wish they would! I'd love to see them!" He seemed to think it was a good thing to have federal agents on site. I didn't ask him why.
Also noticed almost no U.S. flags anywhere. The "I Voted" stickers have some idiotic looking cartoon character on them, not a U.S. flag as I remember seeing before.
Biggest problem I saw was those damnable felt-tip markers on a two-sided ballot. That kind of ink will bleed right through the paper and leave a mark on the other side, and then the machines will reject the ballot for "voting twice" for a candidate or proposition.
And who knows what really happens to your ballot when you slide it into that machine, or drop it into the big plastic box if the machine keeps spitting it back out.
It's bad, kids. It's bad. No U.S. flags anywhere, felt-tip markers on two-sided ballots, machines that may or may not take your ballot, and bins full of machine-rejected ballots to be taken away to some cheat-hole called a "counting center."
This is ridiculous. It's the same or worse as it was in the primaries a few months ago (and I voted at this same polling place back then.)
Hold on to your butts.
Seeing this a lot for Maricopa county. Looks like Arizona will likely be stolen - should be pretty obvious if it is though.
We had ballots that you manually filled the bubbles in with a black pen, so I don't think bleed through is a problem, but what the machines that count them actually do is a whole nother issue.
Rural OH precinct here. First year I’ve ever seen sharpies and felt tip markers. I asked where the pens were and the lady said, “they should be on the table.” I responded with, “these are not pens, they are markers.” Looked at me like I was nuts. Will be watching how it turns out. My town and county are always red.
