Some voters experienced the pains of redistricting this morning as they headed to the polls in West Farms and East Tremont.
Laverne Roberts, 49, spent nearly half an hour going from table to table at P.S. 6 on Tremont Avenue as poll workers tried to find her name in the voter registration books. Roberts says she had documentation telling her to come to P.S. 6, but poll workers told her to go elsewhere. Eventually she filled out a paper affidavit ballot and filed it at P.S. 6.
“You get discouraged when you walk in here and you’re all amped up to vote, and the people in there are sitting around saying you gotta go here, you gotta go there, you gotta go here,” said Roberts.
