Did you know that many poll workers are volunteers?
They didn't build the machine that isn't working right. They didn't write the propositions, pick the candidates, or create the confusing ballot. They didn't make the rules and laws they are being asked to enforce.
If you encounter any problems or feel you were treated unfairly, don't take it out on them. Call your state's election board (the number is on your voting materials or look on your state's website), and tell them. Stay calm and polite, you'll get further than if you yell and threaten. If you still think something was wrong, call your local news stations. They'll have people just waiting to report on "trouble at the polls".
Regardless of who you vote for, regardless of who wins, can we all try to remember the army of volunteers who make an election day possible for us all? Thank them when you leave.
