Popular Youtuber Gothix claimed election workers automatically assumed she would be voting Democrat on Tuesday During The Rhode Island Primary election in a video posted to her Twitter.
In the video, Gothix says she is unaffiliated to any political party and appeared to claim that election poll workers were profiling her and stated they had already pre-selected a Democratic ballot for her before she had finished signing in to vote on Tuesday. The YouTuber noted that the experience leading up to checking in was relatively standard, though claimed a woman working the polling station appeared surprised at her request for a Republican ballot.
“She thought I made a mistake, and so I had to reach over and hit ‘confirm’ to submit my choice,” Gothix said. “What if I didn’t hit confirm? Would they have gone back and changed it? Would I just be stuck with a Democrat ballot? It’s weird that I even have to contemplate that.”
The woman who had allegedly profiled the YouTuber as a Democratic voter appeared rattled as the other poll worker mentioned she needed the Republican ballot instead, according to Gothix.
“It’s like I short circuited her brain … This black lady is voting Republican? What?” she said.
Gothix continued to cast her vote after being given the correct ballot but noted the election workers appeared upset about their interaction.
“The look on their face would be what I would think someone would look like if someone took a dump in their cereal for breakfast,” she said. “They were pissed.”
“The #RhodeIsland primaries are happening today and the voting nonsense has already started 😒 😒,” the Youtuber said in the tweet.
