Gatekeepers at the Polls

Hashtag Enough

When I complained about gatekeepers at the polls barring my way with golf clubs and pushing me away & holding a baseball bat over my head, I was chased away by someone *swinging* a baseball bat at my head, & when I took that complaint to the Durham Police Department, the desk officer told me to Quote: "Take yer complaint ... to the CIA! Heh, heh, Heh." Complaints are usually useless & can be Dangerous, but EARLY VOTING is Easy, Quick, and SAFE. I've been promoting Early Voting for years with flyers at bus terminal, but have been threatened with jail every single year. Gotten worse under new police chief, and now, the city attorney who helped protect me is gone to Charlotte.
