The Arkansas, and Pulaski County specifically, DemoCrooks will try anything.
During the 2000 elections it was just blatant and ugly. My voting district was forced to vote in a Union building that had Gore/Leiberman signs in front of it (100'feet from the door to the voting machines...barely)
I went inside and tried to vote. Yes, tried. I wasn't on the list. I wasn't alone. Three others were also waiting for word from Mrs. Staley's office about there registration. We all had one thing in common. We registered Republican. While waiting for a call I was told that the line out was busy so I'd just have to wait. (Keep in mind we were in a Union building.)
Now I make voting a special occasion so that my kids will remember it and keep it as a tradition. When the fifth (R) voter joined the ranks of the waiting I got upset. It is a good thing my kids were there or I might have ended up in Jail. As it is I was pretty upset. I asked again if they had any luck in getting through and was told that they still could not get an outside line. I asked politely who in the building I could speak with to secure a line. "I don't know. I don't think there is anyone here who can help you."
You Wanna Bet? I must have looked about how I felt because when I took my first step to the double doors separating the voting area from the union building she magically got through to the Secretary of State. Good job that. Probably saved the Union Hall a host of money on rebuilding. Definitely saved my kids the spectacle of Dad getting hauled away in a police cruiser.
In the end my vote never did get through. My registration was 'lost'. I filled out a contested ballot.
I don't think I could deal with that again. I moved to a rural area and will be voting in a public place. I have my proof of registration in my back pocket and simply won't let the (R) on my registration interfere with anything again. Even if I have to send my Kids to the car.

That would have ruined my day. If we don't prosecute this fraud, it is only going to get worse. The rats are out of control.
