At Oakwood Manor Elementary School in Gladstone, voters could pick up their ballot, read the sample ballot and then decide how to vote from a stack of brochures advising them.
The brochures were the Christian Coalition's voters guide.
When voter Dane Dingerson complained to the election poll supervisor, Sara Manichia, she told him: "God wants Bush to win."
Dingerson was outraged.
"I couldn't believe she said that to me as I was voting," he said. "When I became angry, she told me there was nothing wrong with her informing the voters the right way to vote."
Manichia said she has been a polling supervisor for 13 years. "Yes, I told him that God wants Bush to win. I'm proud of my beliefs, and I love the gospel, and God hates abortion....He wants Bush to win."
Clay County election officials said they would investigate. Electioneering is against the law within 25 feet of a voting precinct.
The right way to vote?!?!? What country is this, China? I knew our neighbors to the south were a little wacky, but how did this woman get placed in charge of a polling place?
In a classic snowy game of football, Iowa State emerged victorious over Colorado this afternoon in Boulder. This marks the 8th time in the last 100 years that the Cyclones have won 7 or more games. Amazing, isn't it? I'm debating going to next week's final game against Kansas. It'll be cold, but ISU should win, and I can say I was there...
