Alabama: Loser in Monroeville complains of poll worker reading ballots
The Monroe Journal reports: Jack Botta has filed an official protest against poll worker Deloise Dailey in last Tuesday’s Runoff Election in Frisco City.
“The difference in the vote totals was so great that this may not have been a significant factor in the outcome; however, the principle of a private, secret ballot was violated,” Botta said in his protest letter.
In the Oct.7 election, Sue Starr defeated Botta in the mayoral race by 79 votes, 262-183. ...
“The actual voting machine was placed in a position next to the poll workers and Deloise Dailey situated herself on a high stool near the voting machine which allowed her to read the ballots as they were entered into the machine,” Botta said. -- Botta accuses poll worker of intimidating voters
