A funny thing happened at the polls in the 28th District on Saturday. After the polls closed at 3PM, caucus voters kept showing up, and many of them indicated that they intended to vote for Van Hoy and expected the polls to close at 7PM as they do in general and special elections. Why did this happen?
Because John Van Hoy never told his supporters when the polls would close. His mailers (here and here) don’t tell people when the polls would be open, and it doesn’t appear anywhere on his website. Van Hoy told his supporters the date of the caucus, but not when his supporters could vote for him.
Ouch. Stewart really did deserve to win, it would seem.
