A formal complaint has not been filed against a poll worker caught on camera Tuesday by a local television station saying “This is Obama’s house,” said the Vanderburgh County clerk.Susan Kirk said the incident will be reviewed by the Election Board at its next meeting in a few weeks.

“A formal complaint has not been made, and that’s one reason that we’re deciding if we’ll put that on the agenda or not,” she said. “FOX News brought it in. They didn’t complain, they just asked if that is appropriate and, of course, that’s not appropriate.”

WTVW-FOX7 filmed a poll worker engaging in a conversation with a man. It is unknown if he was a poll worker or a voter. The woman is shown saying to him, “This is Obama’s house.” The woman also is seen chanting Obama’s name and asking who in the location is voting for the Illinois senator. The station’s report also has been linked to the popular YouTube Web site.

Indiana law states that no one can solicit votes or electioneer within 50 feet of a polling place.
