The polling official showed Rose-Mary where her signature had already been placed in the pollbook. Not only did the signatures fail to match, but her name was misspelled. After continuing to protest (and providing multiple ID’s with hyphenated signatures) Rose-Mary was able to vote provisionally, but her ballot ultimately was not counted. http://www.electionjournal.org/2008/07/07/disenfranchised-by-voter-impersonation...
