Fun fact: When I turned 18, which was a presidential election year, I joined the grassroots efforts of Bev Harris (blackboxvoting) which raised concerns about electronic voting, including the ES&S systems that NC was using. I talked to a lot of poll station workers in NC and of course no members of the public were allowed to do more than watch poll stations clean up. Otherwise you had to be pre-registered as an observer well ahead of time, and that registration only goes smoothly if you're a party member.
