Poll Worker Tells People to Vote Democrat

By Todd Starnes

A poll worker in North Carolina has been accused of telling people to vote Democrat.


Ken Sharpe, of High Point, NC, told Fox News that he was waiting in line to vote when he noticed a poll worker approach a woman who needed help. The incident occurred at the Springfield Friends Church polling station in the city’s third ward.

Sharpe said he watched as the worker showed the woman where the Obama button was – along with all the other Democrats on the ticket.

“She was pushing the buttons he told her to push,” Sharpe said. “This is pretty shady.”

When it was his turn to vote, the poll worker did the same thing, he said.

“I went up there to vote and he came over and set up the machine for me,” Sharpe said. “He said, ‘If you want to vote straight Democratic ticket mash this button.’”

“I said, well, what if I want to vote a straight republican ticket? He said ‘Oh, you can do that, too.’”

Sharpe said the poll worker’s attitude and demeanor changed once he said he wanted to vote for a Republican ticket.

“This doesn’t set right,” he said. “I think they were trying to shift people’s minds and try to sway any undecided voters at the last minute (to vote Democrat.”

As soon as Sharpe returned home, he called the FBI’s voter fraud switchboard and filed a complaint.

“Voters beware of who you are voting for and don’t be swayed by anyone trying to make decisions for you,” he said.
