Poll watchers can be anyone who wants to see this process, but they are limited to a specific area of the hall. Derone BUffington is the political organization coordinator, which ensures that credential challengers and unplanned pole watchers are in the right place at all times. He said he was shaken by what happened.
When the crowd made a noise, many activists inside “Stop Counting” were stunned. He said he covered the windows to save the workers and tried to convince many of them to complete the work the next day.

Those who were inside said that both the official challengers and some poll watchers were shouting at the counter counters.
