Yesterday when I went to vote, I went to check in and the lady informed me that I had already voted earlier in the day.
I asked how that was possible and she said she didn't know but that they had already checked me off as having shown up and voted. I replied that it didn't make any sense...I was holding my drivers license right there and asked her why I'd show up twice to vote or how anyone else could have voted instead of me.
She stuttered, stammered, and had some official come over and talk to me, he mumbled something about being sorry for the issue, and apparently it had happened more than once during the day. In fact, there was a woman behind me in line who looked like she was having the same issue, too.
We both filled out provisional (paper) ballots and put them in an envelop. The thing that bothered me the most was that on the back of the envelop, the guy marked a box to signify that this was my ballot and that I was submitting it this way due to the fact there was an error and that I had already apparently "voted."
Apparently I wasn't the only one with this issue, looks like it happened some in Ohio: http://www.local12.com/News/Local/st...iXKNlQ.twitter
I'm not under the delusion that this was a giant problem that could have swung the election a different way, but I'm more annoyed at the fact that things weren't organized correctly. I understand humans make errors but...come on. Seriously?
Just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue as well.
