Good news is the idiot who stopped the officer from voting got fired!
Good to know there is some accountability in the government.

Outrageous! I still have the article from my hometown paper with a photo of me, in uniform, casting a ballot in the early morning as I worked in another city and did not want to take a chance of being held over on OT and not being able to vote. There was absolutely no challenge from the election officials.
