2. I voted in DE this a.m. and had problems
Tue Nov 6, 2012, 02:00 PM
Nov 2012

I was directed to the booth and the attendant was behind the machine so I stood there.

this little lady came around and looked surprised that I was there.

She held the curtain and I walked in
I pressed a button and got no confirmation that it had registered
So I look out the curtain and told her I had a problem
She reached to the top of the machine and pushed a red button that lit the thing up.

If that's her only job I wouuld think that she could at least do taht right.

Second, where was an observer to identify that this woman was not trained properly
and couldn't remember two stupid rules
1) don't make the voter wait
2) turn on the stupid machine!

This shouldn't be so hard to do!

For info:
I am white and 60 years old
the attendant was black and late 60s

You would think that she would be eager to get my vote for Obama!
