Jim Lagrone did yet another campaign “launch” today, using the ABC theme we mentioned earlier. One small quibble: His reference to a need for more “non-partisan” pollworkers. We don’t think he’s likely to find many truly non-partisan workers. Competent and fair poll workers who personally vote Democrat, Republican, Green and independent? Sure, but we think we have thousands of them already. It’s one thing to say the system can be improved. (His call for more training is a good idea, if expensive.) It’s another to leave the impression, if unintentionally, that all currently involved are partisan hacks. The fine retirees who’ve worked my poll for years just might take offense.
