Actually, it looks like poll watchers are legal in all states:

www.nass.org...

There are rules. And you have to register and be approved, so anyone can not hang out just because they want to.
But poll watchers are totally legal.


Why do you keep replying to me? I posted the law on poll watchers too. I said random people can't hang around and watch.

Poll watchers are completely legal in PA:
Poll Worker Training




Section 417 of the Pennsylvania Election Code, 25 P.S. § 2687, provides for the
appointment of watchers. Under section 417(a)
, “[e]ach candidate for...election at any
election shall be entitled to appoint two watchers for each election district in which such

Who doesn't want you to know? The real press release is clear. The Breitbart article in the OP is not.

I am intimidated by the DOJs warning about the prevention of voter fraud could be illegal.

Perhaps a class action suit is warranted against the DOJ for this warning and for turning a blinds eye on the voter rigging by HC campaign. Collusion?




They did no such thing. People seem to find it too difficult to look at the original source of the Breitbart article.

Just what would the average person do? They can't look at what a person is doing. They can't hoover over the table with the election rolls on them or ask anyone for their ID. They can't stand outside and intimidate people so what exactly does trump want his supporters to do? Start some kind of riot on election day?

Maybe because I can't finish reading your whole posts when you have Glenn in your avatar? I think I am still traumatized from last night


But seriously, I was adding information regarding the national laws and the laws in my state.

Considering the Present DOJ is Blatantly Guilty of Political Manipulation by the Obama Administration , maybe a Future Act of Congress could Prevent the Politicalization of Federal Agencies Under Law . Impartiality Assures Justice Under the Law .

What does a poll watcher do? Watch people come and go. See if a person shows up twice?
They have no right to ask for ID or to even see what their name is when they present themselves to the registrar.
So what exactly do poll watchers do or what is trump asking folks to do?

cheese and rice
back to "i dont really know"

So what a poll watcher is allowed and not allowed to do is being called into question. According to state statutes, poll watchers can:

Observe assistance given to voters by election officials
Inspect ballot before it is deposited in ballot box to ensure it matches the voter's wishes.
Take written notes while on duty

Poll watchers have a right to ask for ID or question a right to vote, such as living in the district and being registered.
They can't ask everyone, but if they have reason to ask, they can.

A U.S. Department of Justice press release warns individuals who may serve as poll watchers hoping to prevent voter fraud could violate voter intimidation laws.
SOURCE


Anything could violate one of the milllions of laws Americans are expected to follow. I don't know what to make of this. Is it a harmless statement of the obvious or a malicious attempt at thwarting ordinary people's efforts to stop vote fraud? A lot of people are outraged because they think it's the latter.

I need more information to be clear. For instance, everyone knows that crossing the street in the wrong circumstances can be illegal. Some people would say an organization like the DOJ could only have ulterior motives for mentioning that in a context such as what the article linked above describes. I'm not sure about that.


It's because Trump's suggestion that people go into "those neighborhoods" to watch the polls is an obvious attempt at voter intimidation.

There is no history of widespread voter fraud in this country.

Properly appointed poll watchers are not the problem.

Did you bother to click through to read the actual press release, or did you just swallow the Breitbart pill whole?

Department of Justice? Really.... REALLY? I mean REALLY? Who takes them seriously (meet bill in a plane and drop all chargers..Blah.). Meet Bill on a plane and all the sudden Hillary is a saint.... BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you people are idiots. Just ... Just... Enough. It's done. Your Queens is president, the fix is in , you can just stop now. We all know its all political fraud. Just.. Enough. Take your Hillary campaign money, pay off some debt... Pay your car payment, pay your rent for a month or two... Buy some steak for a barbecue.

Just FYI I really hope you spend some of that Clinton campaign cash on some survival gear and Scope out a bug out shelter. Preferable away from Nuclear fallout.

Good Luck all you puppets....

They are saying trump supporters can't do this and that's true. Each candidate gets their poll watchers from what I've seen here tonight including Donald so the poll watchers will be there doing what they do. You can't go and watch and I can't and standing around outside which is all you or I could do won't tell us what's going on inside.
