After months of phone calls, campaign ads and insistent knocks on their doors, some voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District have finally lost their Southern manners.
Local poll workers in two of the district’s three suburban counties say they have seen noticeably aggressive behavior among people coming to cast ballots in the runoff election between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff.
Among the transgressions being reported to local officials during the runoff’s early voting period are voters wearing campaign paraphernalia and arguing when told to take it off, not getting off their mobile phones when asked to do so, and otherwise barking at poll workers when they’re approached.
The worst behavior appears to be in Fulton County, where officials decided to post retired marshals this week at five of its six early-voting locations as both a precaution and deterrent. The sixth, the county’s North Annex in Sandy Springs, is a location that regularly has sheriff’s deputies for security.

Thank you very much!
Any lack of southern manners has been engendered by the rise in the liberals from “up north” population…and aggressiveness among some of the locals egged on by obama…..
If Ossoff wins they’ll say Trump is finished and if Ossoff loses they’ll say Trump is finished
I read this as evidence that there’s a pretty strong democrat turn out.
Any idea which party the “transgressors” belong to mostly???
For once in my life someone would use the word “aggressive” when describing the republicans. Somehow I think that it’s the activists being bused into Georgia on Soros’s nickel.
Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.
How often do you even hear southern accents from politicians in the south anymore?????? Jeff Sessions is the only one, practically.
The north keeps destroying the south.
Who’s watching the polls for bussed in scumbags?
I PRAY the PUBBIES in Georgia get their butts out to the polls in droves these BASTARDS need to be STOPPED!!!
These are people voting in my district for a candidate that doesn’t live in my district. All because a Judge decided Georgia Election Law is his to make up on a whim.

They are hard core Marxists. The whole communist movement has been taking over America and American children for 100 years.
We need to take back our country—esp. our schools. Common Core was a complete Mind Control takeover of our children. (All by design).
The people being intimidated are the ones watching for that.

Anyone with ANY sense of decency should REJECT the Dims childish and unpatriotic agendas, ESPECIALLY after yesterday
C’mon people, WakeTHU
Well, pretty close. I’m guessing if Ossoff wins, the democrats are so desperate for any win, they will treat it the victory like it was Hillary winning last November (regardless of it being only a slightly Republican leaning district that they poured a literal fortune into).
However if Ossoff loses they will simply dismiss it as a “sympathy vote” for the Republican after the shooting this week and say it means nothing.
And now we’re living in the mongrelization of America. No civility whatsoever.
I wouldn’t call much about the 6th District “Southern”.
Translation: The Republican is winning.
