Another Awesome Voting in Utah Story

The election officials tried turning my mom away.

There was a judge at the front standing at a podium, telling people whether or not they could vote in the primary based on their party affiliations.

When my mom gave her name, they told her she couldn't vote because the Republican primary was closed, unless she wanted to switch her affiliation to Republican.

My mom then had to remind the election official that there was, indeed, also a Democratic primary taking place and she was begrudgingly waved along.
