Betsy Fausnaugh comments on poll experience

Betsy Fausnaugh writes:
I too have encountered an election worker who, if I wasn't such a bull-headed woman might have actually scared me off from voting at all! I walked up to the table to get my ballot and an older "gentleman," looked up at me. He asks my name and growls,"I suppose you are a Democrat!" I gave him my best evil eye back and told him it didn't matter what I was and was not his business! He grumbled under his breath, finally locating my name, and handed me my ballot. This could be very intimidating to a younger voter. Yet another time, I did a write in vote, and yet our polling area stats at the end of the election stated zero, write-ins! Something is definitely smelling fishy in Adair! --Betsy Fausnaugh
