On Tuesday, Nov. 6, I went to the polling station located at the National Guard Armory in Orofino. I was accompanied by my wife. My wife signed in and went to the voting booth. I was told that I was not registered. The poll workers suggested that I register on site. I told them that there had to be a mistake, since I had voted in the primary.
A check of the “exit” sheet revealed that my name was listed as registered, but the sign-in sheets did not have my name. I told them that I did not have time to register and that I was gravely concerned that I had been dropped from the list for no reason. Just as my wife finished voting, one of the poll workers returned from assisted curbside voting. The sign-in sheet, which she had, contained my name. I was then able to vote.
If I had registered, my vote would have been invalid. If I had left, I would not been able to vote. While I appreciate the service being provided through curbside service, I ask that you would implement changes to procedures and/or training to prevent this incident from being repeated.
