Pasco voter complains about 'subliminal' message at polls

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.
