Harris County poll worker charged with assault over 'blackface' incident

An Election Day poll worker was relieved of her duties and charged with misdemeanor criminal assault after she allegedly bumped into a black voter and made a remark about "blackface" following some confusion over the woman's voter registration.

One poll worker walked off the job at the Iglesia Bautista Libre polling location in north Houston after the incident, and another was left in tears as she gave a statement to a Harris County sheriff's deputy about the altercation.

A team from the Harris County Attorney's office arrived at the polling site and has launched an investigation. The voter, Rolanda Anthony, said she believed the incident was a flagrant attempt to suppress her vote.
