when I walked into my voting place they immediately told me I’d have to try again next election because I wasn’t registered yet, without even speaking a word to me about my age or checking first. I look young so they weren’t even going to help me or check if I was registered
young people: do not let anyone bully you at the polls!! if someone tells you you aren’t registered and you think you are, double check online before deciding to go home.
their expressions immediately changed when I said (with notable irritation, because how dare they try to belittle me) I’ve been registered to vote for five years now and their attitudes are the only issue I’ve ever had to deal with
