As an (now really exhausted!) Election Inspector, I applaud Bear Lawyer’s non-partisan “Get Out The Vote” effort. However, I am concerned that his signatory efforts on behalf of the professorial-looking gentleman might be crossing the “Assisted Voter” line into some grey “electoral misconduct” area. I shall wait to see if BL decides to assist the gentlevoter in his private booth before voicing a concern.
Bear Lawyer maintains that it’s not voter intimidation—let alone electoral misconduct—if all he does is force the appropriately-aged citizen into voting qua voting. No implication of a favourite candidate, no partisan pressure, just a firm paw on the shoulder as the would-be voter is lead into the polling place, followed by a rough bearhandling up to the registration table, then a stern shove into the voting booth (BL has the good sense to wait outside), and, finally, an enthusiastic bear hug once the ballot has been cast. Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy.
Oh, and a sticker. Stickers are neat.
I hope you signed your assistance affidavits. Otherwise, GET BEHIND THE 100 FEET.
