While we're waiting on more election result from Mr. Pulle over at Dallas County Elections HQ, here's a missive from a Friend of Unfair Park who says he too experienced voting problems this gloomy Saturday:
I got the same story at the Reverchon Park Rec Center this morning. The ballots were going in, but only blank-side up. The poll workers said something about the "scanners being dirty."
Oh, I will bet they are...
Pulle said he spoke with Dallas County Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet earlier this evening, and Sherbet said there had been nothing reported "out of the ordinary." --Robert Wilonsky
