Usher Was Allowed To Skip The Lines When He Voted
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.09.2012



The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Usher was allowed to skip the lines to vote when he arrived in a back door at the Bill Johnson Community Activity Building in Roswell.

The special treatment for Usher angered the non-celebrities who had been waiting in line, according to Channel 2 Action News. Fulton elections Interim Director Sharon Mitchell confirmed that he made the arrangements in advance.

Mitchell said: "It was better for us not to create a distraction from a celebrity for other voters."

Meanwhile, North Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann, who has criticized long voting lines and small polling space and machines in the area, didn't think the move was fair to others who had been waiting. She said she can only think of a few people who deserve that treatment: people with disabilities, the elderly and voters with small children. She added: "I'm not sure about celebrities."

Usher went straight to a machine, where he took cell phone pictures of himself casting his ballot. Then he posted the photos on Twitter. Taking photos while voting is only allowed with the poll manager's permission, which he had.
