Cindy Sheehan Faring Well in Exit Polls, Dems Harassing Sheehan Volunteers
We've been all over the city at the polls since 7am this morning. We have 12 teams on the streets getting out the vote in CA-8 and we've been cruising all over the city in the Cindy mobile talking to voters everywhere.
Already four of our teams have been harassed by poll workers and police and it's barely past noon. We are complying with all rules and regs, making sure that we are outside of the 100 ft. marker set by the Dept of Elections - but that's not stopping them from trying to keep us away from the voters. Four times in precincts that favor Cindy, workers from the Department of Elections have come out mid-day and recalculated the distance to keep us across the street and far away from people going in to vote. In one instance a city worker actually blocked the poll entrance with a city truck.
In each of these incidents the police have also been called - it seems like someone is working hard to find everyway way they can to intimidate our volunteers. We won't be moved!!!!
We've also had two reports of polls in progressive neighborhoods where voters have been turned away because they ran out of ballots and had problems with the voting machines. We have reported both of these incidents to the Department of Elections.
We're keeping a close eye on the process.
But here's the amazing news: early exits polls have already showed us at 40% and at many precincts our numbers are dead even with Pelosi.
Stay in touch. Stay strong!
