I was registered as republican in New Jersey and was a valid republican ‘On the day of the election June 5th.”
At the election site:
I presented my signed voter signature card and drivers license. Which had “Camden County New Jersey written on both.
I was not in the book because they said I was late in changing from un-declared to republican. They said I could vote only by provisional ballot and gave me a paper provisional ballot kit at the election site..
In the kit was a green ballot and a special envelope with a perforated edge that said something like do not tare off or your vote will not count. To wit I did not read until after I tore it off. Oops
I also made a mistake on the ballot in ink. Oops
I took my filled out wrong ballot to the table and asked then to “void this one and give me another.” THEY REFUSED OT GIVE ME ANOTHER BALLOT!”
The worker was trying to pull a fast trick and told me I could just cross off the wrong info on the ballot and we could scotch tape. I felt her advice was wrong and would cause my vote to be voided.
I demanded another ballot a little louder so the whole room could hear me this time. The worker said its will be fine crossed out and taped. I strongly objected and ‘demanded’ they call the board of elections and ask them. Which she did and the board told her to give me another. Which she also did. I filled it out correctly. I took the envelope up to the table and verified that the information on the front of the sealed envelope was correct. She said yes it was and I waited until she put the provisional ballot in the orange bag and then left.
About 3-weeks later… June 26th 2012
I get a letter from the board of elections stating my vote “WAS NOT COUNTED” because I am not a Camden County resident. And the envelope was filled out wrong.
1… I have been a Camden County resident for more then 15-years. I presented my signed voter signature card and drivers license. Which had “Camden County New Jersey written on both at the voting site.
2… Staff checked the information written on the envelope and verified it was correct before I allowed them to take my ballot and put it in the orange bag.
~ ALL OF MY INFORMATION IS CORRECT, I AM A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN AND THEY DID NOT COUNT MY VOTE FOR RON PAUL!! ~
I called the board of elections to find out what went wrong. I was transferred around the place 6-times. Explaining what happened 6-times before I got someone that was intelligent enough [Peggy] to articulate the situation. She was baffled as to why my vote was not counted and bragged that it was to late Romney has the nomination. I told her I cont care who you think the nominee is. The race is not over until August! I am calling you to fix the election fraud and vote suppression coming out of your office.
Peggy then asked me. ?Well…. Did you file a voter complaint at the site?
Reply: They did not educate me that there was a voter complaint form.
Peggy replied: Oh, I can send you one now. Reply: Please.
I am now waiting for the complaint form.
I WANT RON PAUL’S LAWYERS TO INCLUDE ME IN THEIR VOTER SUPPRESSION CASE BECAUSE I HAVE WRITTEN PROOFS OF SAME.
My drivers license and voter card both, have Camden County NJ clearly written on them.
I have the letter they sent me stating “vote was NOT counted because you are not a Camden County NJ resident.”
Pretty clear black and white case that will help them win.
Please have someone contact me about this
