(TCPalm) A St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office deputy has apparently been sent to quell a possible riot at a Port St. Lucie polling place after 40 ineligible voters demanded to vote after polls closed, said Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker.
The 750 Darwin Blvd. precinct is the only polling place that still has people waiting in line to vote, Walker said. She said there was a long line, but the last person in line at 7 p.m. was going to be allowed to cast their ballot.
But when about 40 people, who Walker said were ineligible to vote, showed up after the deadline it seemed there was going to be a riot, so she said she called Sheriff Ken Mascara who then apparently sent a deputy to the precinct.
