Polling place problems

Posted Monday, April 28, 2008, at 2:53 PM

Have you ever been bothered an extreme amount by a person outside your polling place attempting to get you to vote for his or her candidate?

Has there ever been a case when one of them caused you to change your mind?

I'm not sure if it's because my polling place is rural or what, but since I have lived down here I have not even seen any campaign workers at the polls, just signs.

Yes many many times...But NO to changing my mind...I have always learned from my Dad when growing up to never let someone change my mind about anything if I believe I know best..sometimes it has not worked out for the best..But I still stick to what I believe is right and I never judge anyone that thinks different from me..

I have been bothered by candidates or campaign workers at the polls and no they have never changed my mind about who I am going to vote for. I vote early so I don't have to walk through the gauntlet of people working the polls on election day.

Yes, when we lived in Philadelphia, there were always teamster-y looking guys hainging out in front of polling places trying to intimidate voters.
