Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
