Republicans Ejected from Polls
The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Republicans have been ejected from six polling places in Philadelphia. It is unclear from the stories whether the ejected individuals were poll workers or merely observers. It is also unclear who ejected them. The story indicates that a "Democrat judge of elections" ejected them, which probably means one of the local trial court judges who under Pennsylvania law assume duty for resolving election day legal disputes. However, the story could also be referring to actual poll workers, who are sometimes referred to as election judges.
