Gingrich appearance forces poll workers to move trainingby Jennifer Sorentrue | January 27th, 2012
Dozens of Palm Beach County poll workers schedule to be trained in advance of Tuesday’s presidential primary were forced move their class to another building after, election officials were told the room they were expecting to meet in would instead be used to host Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.
The Republican Jewish Coalition is scheduled to host Gingrich at 3:30 p.m. today at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach.
The poll workers’ class was scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. in the same room, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher said.
Bucher said she was told she could move the poll worker training to smaller meeting room at the civic center, but declined fearing all of the media coverage would prevent the 62 poll workers from being able to reach the building.
Instead, Bucher has moved the class to a building across the street.
