At Wayland TM 11-19-09, Amanda Phillips bravely stepped up to the procedural microphone to lodge multiple complaints to the moderator and ask for a reconsideration.
The moderator had great difficulty in hearing the speaker due to the bad acoustics of the room (the shout vote depends on this) and then Ms. Phillips asked for a [private] paper ballot re-vote do to multiple problems.
She complained of voter harassment and intimidation while she and a number of others were left standing for many minutes while the tellers ONLY counted the NO votes for the new high school. She said that some people who shouted NO would not stand up due to this intimidation !
She also pointed out that counting only the NO votes on a $100 million dollar spending measure and NOT counting the YES votes was improper and the burden of proof was to count the YES votes to show a 2/3rds.
The moderator quickly dismissed and denied the complaints due to the margin of 1400 to 100 who were believed to be in favor. But this does not address the people who would not stand up due to harassment or the fact that the YES votes were not counted.
This is prima-facia evidence that voter intimidation and harassment can and does occur when public voting is used.
Electronic voting would have avoided all of this.
