MontCo Attorneys Available for Election Day Issues

Prosecutors will be available to voters through the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.


Montgomery County Prosecutors will be available to help voters with Election Day complaints, according to an article in The Intelligencer.

"We want to ensure that all Montgomery County residents are able to vote without being subject to intimidation, threats, or any other abuse of the election system," said District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.

Voters with complaints or concerns on Election Day operations can contact the team, lead by First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele, at 610-278-3146.

Because it is a federal election, voters can also call the U.S. Attorney's Office with election complaints at 215-861-8420 or 215-861-8200.

Voters with issues concerning ballot access or discrimination can call the federal Department of Justice's Civil Rights Divisitions's Voting Section at 1-800-253-3931.

It doesn't matter what groups sought to invite UN snoops. If Obama OKed the interference of these groups in disregarding US laws, he is culpable of condoning and attempting to override US sovereign law. He should have told these groups that he didn't have the authority to counteract US law. And, it is an impeachable offense for a US President to collude with international organizations, rather than abide by US state and US national laws. This should not be happening.

Neither the NAACP nor the UN has any authority to be inside a polling place for any reason whatsoever. Only local voters and poll workers should be permitted inside a polling place. Arrest anyone inside, or trying to get inside, a polling place whether a NAACP member or a member of the United Nations. And then, start the impeachment process. None of this should be happening. It is a gross violation of US law and US Presidential authority.

Marc: The immunity you refer to: Diplomatic agents and family members, UN Mission staff and family members, and UN Secretariat employees, those observers would have to prove with documentation that they qualified. Immunity does not bar arrest, it only blocks prosecution. Having them arrested and removed is perfectly legal.

Actually, UN observers have been coming here since 2002. A terrible idea if you ask me. As far as BHO stepping on the Constitution, he has done that so many times with his end runs around Congress. He has issued so many Executive Orders and his departments have issued so many regulations that have essentially enacted laws that were previously rejected by Congress - i.e. the Dream Act, Cap and Trade, Card Check (by way of shortening the time that businesses have to counter any attempt to unionize), Net Neutrality (they have the UN sticking their noses into the internet now, too), etc., etc.

Maybe we do need observers. I just voted in the same place I have voted for 36 years and they required me to show a picture ID. Only when I came home did I read that this is not legal. And how about folks having to wait 7 hours to vote in early voting in Florida. In the civil rights days the president would have rightly sent in federal troops to protect the civil rights of U.S. citizens.
