So I am going to be working as an election official on Tuesday. I went to training recently. A big room full of earnest Madisonians, spoiling for a fight. I have to believe, however, that the same people who were very concerned about belligerent people angry about being disenfranchised tearing up the precinct and wondered if there will be police or security guards at the polls would be the first to complain if the government announced that there would be security at polling places (and rightly so, because of the intimidation factor). The woman leading the training said, yes, we got a belligerent voter. Once. You know, you can call the cops, they’ll be there pretty quick.

Sometimes, this city just slays me.
