Federal observers will monitor polling places in Boston and Springfield Tuesday. They want to know if those cities are protecting the voting rights of immigrants, including Hispanics, Chinese and Vietnamese.
Both cities were sued by the Justice Department for alleged polling place violations and the sides settled their cases before trial.
In a sense, you’ll see a reason to vote for John Bonifaz for Sec. of State at these places. We shouldn’t be getting sued by the Feds to comply with election law. What are we, some banana republic that needs Jimmy Carter to fly in and oversee our elections? Guess so.
