I went into polling location 073 - Harbour Place @ 3700 SE Jennings Rd, Pt St Lucie with a Libertarian T-shirt on, and was told I couldnt vote because my perfectly normal Florida Drivers License magnetic strip did not work. I was offered a "provisional" ballot, which I refused. Meanwhile, they are carting out these poor, barely mobile old folks out, and having them vote against their will, some did not even realize what was going on. I saw a poll worker looking over an elderly persons shoulder while they were voting, and grab thier ballot, ball it up, and said that she needed a new one. These people were so medicated and sedated they didnt know what was going, on meanwhile its okay for pollworkers to supervise your ballot? There were two lines, a very slow moving line of normal public at the back of a MASSIVE nursing home, and a line of wheel chairs and walkers coming in the other door. How is a private business like a nursing home sponsoring the elections? This is extremely biased, forcing people to vote, whom are given everything from food, water, meds, bedtime, and news choices. . Many of these people didnt have thier identification, didnt know thier names, and were still handed provisional ballots. Me, well hey, my government issued magnetic strip failed the first time it was ever swiped so I only get a provisional ballot. The people in that nursing home have never even heard the term "Libertarian". What a sham.
