Mecklenburg GOP Chairman: extended voting causes 'stress'

Posted by on Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 10:52 AM

The Charlotte Observer reports that Mecklenburg County Republican Party Chairman Lee Teague opposes the county's extension of voting hours on Saturday, in part because it is "unfair to election workers, who are already stressed." (The paper provided no direct quotes from Teague.)

So, in addition to voting being an affront to democracy, it now is tough on election workers. Maybe we should give them an extended lunch break on Tuesday?
