something fishy at CA polling places todaySubmitted by beverly33 on Tue, 05/19/2009 - 22:42
So I just went to vote "no" on everything just like "Dr. No" and my polling place was CLOSED mind you it is 6 miles out in the country and I had no notice of this. There was a sign saying you can drive into town and vote at your choice of 2 other polling places. So I drive the 10 MILES back to town and asked the voting volunteer guy about it and he said he's never seen anything like it, it's a "special election" and everything is different, lots of polling places are closed and I'm just lucky to get to vote because there is a list of people who had to vote by mail MANDATORY and aren't allowed to vote at any polling place!! I learned here at the dailypaul that you always have a right to cast a provisional ballot if you're not on the list. Good thing I knew that because when i went to vote for Ron Paul for the presidential election my name was missing from the list and I had to do the provisional. Well the people behind me looked like they were maybe going to be turned away due to being on the mandatory mail ballot only list???
Of course I'm not too sure about what was really happening but this my report on the CA election!! Never experienced anything like it in my lifetime of 41 years, and I always vote.
