8:38 a.m.

Republican election board workers in at least six precincts in Philadelphia have been tossed by the Democrat judge of elections, the McCain campaign is reporting. The reason provided was that they are the minority party. Election board workers guard the legitimacy of the election process.

Peter Feldman, local spokesman for the McCain-Palin ticket, said the Republican poll workers were jettisoned from the 44th Ward, 12th & 13th divisions; 6th Ward, 12th division; and 32d Ward, Division 28.
