Ballot judge supports Trump, hopes people continue to vote

Margaret Tabor, 80, of Bowling Green has worked as an election clerk for 40 years and a ballot judge for the last two years. “I just love the Republican Party,” explains Tabor as her reason for devoting so much time to the electoral process. She is unabashed of the elephant necklace she proudly wears while working the T.C. Cherry Elementary School voting location.

Margaret Tabor, 80, Bowling Green, has been working at the T.C. Cherry Elementary precinct for 42 years.

Tabor, who has been an election clerk for 40 years and has been the ballot judge for the past two years, said she loves working on Election Day.

“I just really love to work,” Tabor said. “I really enjoy it. I’ve been working a long time and I’m a Republican.”

Tabor held up her elephant necklace that she tries to wear every election.

“I’m really not supposed to wear anything like that, but I’m wearing it anyway,” Tabor said. “I’ve got one that’s bigger, but I thought that might be pushing it a little too far.”

Tabor said she is proud to support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“I hope [the election] is going for Trump,” she said.

Tabor said there has been many people already out this morning voting, and she said she hopes it continues.

“We’ve had a busy day,” Tabor said. “I’d said it started getting heavy about 6:30 this morning. It has been an interesting election, and I just hope people use their common sense.”
