The Trump campaign has been doing everything they can to try and guarantee the integrity of the election.

Honestly, that all we as Conservatives want, but all Democrats want is a win at any cost.

President Trump knows that Pennsylvania, and especially the city of Philadelphia is a critical location and stressed the importance of having poll watchers.

Pennsylvania is very close in the polls, which means if we learned anything from the 2016 election, President Trump should win the state by around 4-5% when everything is counted.

The state is definitely an important one since there are 20 electoral votes up for grabs.

But back to the poll watchers...

One man was prevented from being allowed into a polling location to do his job as a poll watcher.

In the video, you can see the man speaking to poll workers outside, "You're not letting me in?" the man asks. Then one of the poll workers replies, "No. Call the police, do it. If you're legal, call the cops."

Another individual says that they did call the cops.

The man is actually legal, which was why there was no problem with calling the cops.

Poll watchers in Pennsylvania can challenge the identity or residency status of a voter in an attempt to bar that voter from voting. The judge of elections (a.k.a. the person in charge of the polling place, a position generally determined by municipal elections every four years) decides if the challenge is a good-faith challenge or just a frivolous challenge designed to cause problems and delays.

If the former, then the judge of elections has to try to verify the residency or identity of the voter. And if the judge can’t do that, the voter will be allowed to call in another voter from the area who can sign an affidavit confirming the person’s identity.

Poll watchers also look out for other things, like voting machines working improperly and poll workers providing a little too much, er, guidance to voters (i.e., suggesting they vote for or against a certain candidate).

It has been reported that after police got involved the man was allowed inside to do his job.

Fortunately, at the time of this writing on election night, President Trump is winning Pennsylvania by about half of a million votes which should all but secure a win in the state.
