Some mistakes are just too stupid to blame on the county secretary, directly. There were poll officials who claimed that only Independents were allowed to vote in the nonpartisan TulsaMayoral race, for instance. But how did that level of stupidity ever get hired? It does beg the question of what training aids are given to poll officials. I can think of a simple chart which would show the options for each of the 4 divisions of voters, listing all of their options in this election day.
I voted early last Thursday (because I could), but I and my wife stopped by our neighborhood poll Tuesday afternoon so she could vote. the first official poll worker to greet her, asked; "Democrat or Republican?". I chimed in to say; "or Libertarian, or Independent?". The good man took my correction quickly, saying; "You're right. I need to include everyone."
