An allegation of voter intimidation brought police to Phoenixville Area High School this morning.
According to Judge of Elections Charlie Dewey, a man attempted to vote at the Phoenixville East 3 polling station this morning not long after polls opened who had an “inactive” voter registration status, meaning he hadn’t cast a ballot in over five years.
A Republican poll watcher challenged the man’s eligibility, at which point he went home to get ID, returned to the polling place, and cast a ballot. A fellow voter witnessed this exchange and cried foul, but by the time Phoenixville Police arrived to file a report, both the reporting party and the challenged voter were gone, according to Dewey.
