“Czechoslovakian” Poll Observers Disrupt Florida Voting Station

On the eve of a Trump victory in the decisive state, a Miami polling station was visited by the mysterious “International Voters League of Czechoslovakia”

It’s official: Donald Trump has been elected as the next president of the United States.

And the contentious state of Florida, which also decided the 2000 election for George W. Bush over Al Gore, played a key role in the Republican candidate’s victory.

But early Tuesday morning, a Miami polling station had some unusual visitors from a country that no longer exists.

According to the Miami Herald, two women and a man claiming to be members of the “International Voters League of Czechoslovakia” demanded access to a Miami station to observe the vote after polls opened at 7:00.

The group “aggressively” pushed for access after flashing badges, passports, and paperwork.

Election clerk Gail Jones described the man as “blonde, white, sporting lots of gold jewellery and speaking with an “Eastern European” accent,” according to the Herald.

But Jones – who said she knew that Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1992 – became immediately suspicious of the group, and refused them entry.

When one of the woman began filming voters – an illegal action – the election clerk left to call for back-up. When she returned, the “Czechoslovakian” observers were gone.
