NY Times report on voting problems in Palm Beach "...some precinct workers said that they were under strict instructions to turn away people asking for voting assistance — mainly out of fear that it would slow down the voting. Louise Austin, a precinct worker in Boynton Beach, said she and other workers at her precinct turned away voters who besieged them with questions. "People were coming up to me," Ms. Austin said, "and I had to follow the directive — `Don't help anyone. Don't talk to anyone.' "
