A Williamson County election supervisor and judge Lila Guzman resigned after screaming at a black female voter confused about where to vote in Round Rock, Texas, on Nov. 2:
Get out. Get out. Get out. You are rude. You are not following the law. Go. Go.
A second voter, who filmed the unhinged judge, recalled the incident to KVUE:
As soon as she started getting louder, I was like, “This is getting out of hand.” So I began to record.
She did tell her she couldn’t vote there, but she didn’t say where in Travis. The lady did have an accent. She could’ve been new to the country. I don’t know, but she needed some help.
Guzman also threatened to call the police on the black woman to have her escorted out of the building.
Williamson County Elections Administrator Chris Davis explained non-logical rules set in place by white Texas lawmakers, noted KVUE:
The voter was registered to vote in Williamson County but resided in Travis County, Davis said, and the poll workers in Travis County should’ve sent her to the Travis County Elections Division so she could vote a limited ballot. Instead, the voter tried to vote at the Williamson County Annex.
Guzman whined to KVUE that working 12-hour days — which many Americans do for decades — for nearly two weeks took a toll on her:
It was the end of the day, and we were seeing steady turnout across all sites, but again, no excuse. It’s our job to get voters answers and help them vote, either at our site or the site where they need to vote.
Guzman said she resigned because she felt Davis’ office did not provide backup when she called the office to have police remove the black voter from the building.
