Battle in Philly today over minority voting inspectors #vindyvote

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities in Philadelphia say a judge has issued a court order allowing all certified minority inspectors into Philadelphia polling places.

The Republican Party said dozens of legally credentialed minority voting inspectors were removed from polling places in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Tasha Jamerson, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Seth Williams, says a judge has now issued a court order allowing all minority voting inspectors into polling places.

State GOP Chairman Rob Gleason says 75 Republican election workers were prohibited from accessing polling places in the heavily Democratic city, prompting the party to seek the court order.

A message left with the state’s Democratic Party was not immediately returned.
