As many here have exhorted us to do more than simply whine or express outrage at “The Man” or “The System” of unfair, stolen elections, fraud, deceit, and chicanery, I have stepped up. You are reading here, the first public acknowledgment of my being assigned, trained, and committing to be a precinct Judge of Elections.
I had attended a Poll Watcher training a few weeks ago, and received a notice that our county was short over 700 workers for our primary this coming Tuesday. So I applied. This afternoon, was informed that I was assigned the position of Judge of Elections. Did an online training this evening, and officially I am ready to go. Unofficially, I will print and read the elections handbook with all of the arcane rules to make sure I am better prepared. This really is a significant responsibility with a lot of procedural details that I need to attend to.
The training was simple, on the quizzes after each section I only got one answer wrong, which I feel was a sneaky answer, if not outright trickery. They changed the color of one of the bags from purple to black, as in where do you put the unused ballots at the end of the day, and had no right answer… I selected the black bag, and was scolded that the ballots go in the purple bag, since there is no black bag… the choices were the yellow bag (for used ballots), the black bag, or neither. I knew it wasn’t the yellow bag…
The big deal is what will Pennsylvania do this Tuesday. Trump endorsed Oz, I don’t like Oz. In the dictionary, the definition of slimy has a picture of Oz for representation. I really like Kathy Barnette, but have been barraged with an onslaught of anti-Kathy propaganda recently, which I believe originated from other Republicans. The Democrats hate McCormick, they send me hourly messages that a vote for McCormick is a vote for Trump. What’s not to like about that!?
I am still leaning Kathy. Bongino is trying to set up interviews for all three frontrunners. That might help clarify the situation.
Bottom line, it was uber easy to be hired to be a fricckkin Judge of Elections! You should do it to. get involved. true the votePublished in
