Mark, please review page 11 of the Poll Watcher’s Guide issued by the Secretary of Sate Elections Division last paragraph: Persons allowed in the polling place A. 1. Election judge and clerks 2: Poll watchers and Secretary of State inspectors. 3. Persons admitted to vote 4. Children under 18 years old who are accompanying a parent whois admitted to vote. 5. Persons providing assistance to or interpreting for a voter who is entitled to assistance or to an interpreter. 6. Federal inspectors appointed by the U.S. Department of Justice. 7. Persons summoned or appointed by the presiding election judge to act as special peace officers to preserve order.
It is my opinion, only being a poll watcher would permit a County Chair being present at the voting precincts during the Presidential election Tuesday and I’m confident the presiding judges will follow the SOS poll watcher guide.
I look forward to seeing our County Chair at each polling location, outside the 100′ mark, which is legally allowed to verify that signs are placed properly and visiting with voters and Democrats as they enter and exit the polls. I’m sure that is what he meant.
It nice to know that as a party chair Mark will follow the law and meet and check to make sure that the voters, Republican and Democratic are give a fair chance to cast their ballots. Even outside the 100 foot marker he can spot potential problems and get them addressed. Glad that you may check where i am anytime during the day!
