I grew up in Chicago in the 50's and 60's and I remember the Democratic precinct captain coming to our house to pick-up my grandfather and grandmother to drive them to the polling place to vote. Before they would get in to his car the precinct captain slipped my grandfather some money. Neither my grandfather nor my grandmother could read or write so the precinct captain had to help them vote. I always wondered how they voted. Yeh, we don't need no stinkin BADGES!!
