Election Judge No-Show Faces Charges

I'm sure glad my alarm worked on Tuesday. An Allegheny County elections judge who was sick and overslept was escorted into the polling place by Deputy Sheriffs, and is being charged with a misdemeanor for filing to perform her duties. Voters in her precincts were re-routed and had to file paper ballots.

Deputy sheriffs are forbidden by law from being at the polling place unless they are voting. So the judge of elections is not the only person who ignored the law here.

Deputy sheriffs are most certainly allowed at the polls if their presence is requested.In this case, it was to frickin' bring the elections judge.
