Gatekeepers at the Polls

Hashtag Enough

I complained about gatekeepers at the polls barring my way with golf clubs, pushing me away and holding a baseball bat over my head, I was chased away by someone *swinging* a baseball bat at my head. I took that complaint to the Durham Police Department, the desk officer told me to: "Take yer complaint ... to the CIA! Heh, heh, Heh." Complaints are usually useless and can be Dangerous. But EARLY VOTING is easy, quick, and SAFE. I've been promoting early voting for years with flyers at bus terminal. Every single year, I have been threatened with jail time for doing so. These threats have gotten worse under the new police chief. And now, the city attorney who helped protect me is gone to Charlotte.
