Schwarzenegger's name was marked as having already voted when a poll worker was testing some procedures or some such nonsense. The issue was worked out, but it's what's buried a few grafs down that frosts me:
Schwarzenegger's aides were informed of the problem when they arrived Tuesday to survey the governor's polling station. When Schwarzenegger showed up later, a poll worker told the governor he would have to use a "provisional" ballot that allows elections workers to later verify whether the same person cast two votes. McCormack said the poll worker did the correct thing.So he "insisted," eh? Wow, bet that would've worked for everyone else, right? A provisional ballot is the proper protocol even when there's been an obvious error with the list. Why does he get special treatment?
The governor insisted on using a regular ballot and was allowed to do so
