Voter sees red over blue tape at polls
Amid the flurry of activity during Election Day, Pasco Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley tweeted Tuesday morning about one voter's gripe:
"Voter complained 'blue' tape we use to designate line to optical scanner is a 'subliminal' message to vote Dem! Seriously?"
Corley, a Republican who retained his office this year without opposition, sent a followup tweet a half-hour later noting the voter was mistaken.
"Irony is that we used to use 'red' tape so maybe we need to switch to a 'neutral' color?"
By 10 a.m., Corley noted, 28,715 Pasco residents had cast Election Day ballots. Combined with absentee and early voting, nearly half of Pasco's voters cast their ballots by midmorning.
