Two poll watchers fired from Fla. precinct

POMPANO BEACH (CBSMiami) – Two South Florida poll watchers were fired Tuesday from a Pompano Beach voting precinct.

According to Tonya Edwards from the Broward Department of Elections, the two poll watchers were asked to leave the Herb Skolnick Center in Pompano Beach, located at 800 NW 46th Avenue, for “not adhering to policy/training.”  They were let go by an election official who was on site and replaced by two new workers.

Edwards told CBS4 News the workers were asked to leave for interfering with the voting process.

Voting was not interrupted during the incident.

No other incidents have been reported at any South Florida voting precincts.
