NEW: Ballot Questions Causing Bottleneck at Worcester Polls

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

 

The long lines that have greeted Worcester voters heading to the polls all day may be due in part to the three lengthy ballot questions included on this year's ticket.

Voters must mark an answer for the Availability of Motor Vehicle Repair Information law, the Prescribing Medication to End Life law, and the medical marijuana law in order for their ballots to be accepted when fed into the vote machines.

While the answers may come easy to those familiar with the ballot measures, for voters seeing them for the first time it can be a lot of information to digest. The same goes for poll workers as well.

According to ACLU Central Mass Field Director Chris Robarge, observers called the City's Election Commission twice today after a poll worker in precint 10-2 on Cedar Street was observed misexplaining ballot questions on two separate occassions.
