Voter Turnout 38% in Forks at 3 PM

I visited 3 of Forks Township's 4 precincts. 2,813 of 7,358 registered voters had already cast their ballots.

At the Forks Faith Lutheran Church, conditions are horrendous. The parking lot is overflowing and average waiting time is 1 and a half hours to 1 hour and forty-five minutes. Obama supporters are acting as parking attendants. While I was there, I saw two elderly couples come and leave without voting. They are disabled and can't wait in line for lengthy periods.

Elections officials tell me they are happy to escort people with disabilities inside the building, but must know about them. Campaign workers, however, are unable to walk inside the building. I suggested to one of them that he might just ask a voter to walk inside and notify the judge of elections.

Unless that happens, some elderly citizens will be unable to vote.

After Stoffa drove out Ms. DePaul with his handed picked vigilantes, this is the result. He and Clunky Conklin will have the entire process screwed up until they are done.

If there are any problems you have one man to blame, John Stoffa.

Really, I thoought that the reason for this gigantic turnout was a presidential election. Silly me. Now I know that those long lines I see everywhere are all Stoffa's fault.

What a maroon.
