WATCH: Poll Watcher Aggressively Denied Access to PA Polling Location

Start

A certified city-wide poll watcher in the critical swing state of Pennsylvania was denied access to a polling station.

The video reveals the individual, who’s seen with a Watcher’s Certificate from Philadelphia’s County Board of Elections, inquiring with two individuals blocking the entrance to a polling station “You’re not letting me in?”

In a heated response, the man returns “No. Call the police. Do it.” before continuing to refuse to allow the poll watcher in despite his insistence “I have a city-wide watcher certificate.”

The slip the poll watcher appears to be carrying comes from Philadelphia’s County Board of Elections, which “authorizes the individual to watch any ward/division in Philadelphia.”
