Waiting in line to handover my voting ballot. The visually Latina woman collecting ballots went to hand the Asian woman voter her “I voted” sticker. She hesitated and said to the voter, “We have Chinese ones too.” The voter’s body language and facial expression showed frustration but she just replied clearly in English, “No thanks, I’m fine,” and took her ‘I voted’ sticker written in English. The woman collecting ballots was so oblivious and caught up, she had no clue of how offensive that was. I was offended.
