[View the story "Election day in Berkeley, so far..." on Storify]
Poll workers at McGee Ave Baptist Church were poorly organized, they made errors handing out the four pages of the ballot. People were voting sitting around tables.
Sitting around tables? Doesn’t that violate some sort of something?
Seems like it sets up a situation in which voters could get pressured to vote in a certain way, with other people watching them.
Many polling places have the requisite booth, but they also have tables where people can sit if they like. I voted at a table this morning so that my 6 year old and 9 year could watch and participate.
