A dispute over voter registration led to an argument inside at the Fenton Township polling location Tuesday.
Ron Haley, of Fenton Township, came into vote around 1 p.m. when officials told him he wasn't registered to vote in .
Haley said he had moved from the city of Fenton to Fenton Township earlier this year. Haley said he had changed his address during that time and that his wife, Nikki, did the same. Records showed Nikki's information transfered, but there was no record of Ron on the voter registry, said Fenton Township clerk Bob Krug. Haley said he was registered and should have been issued a provisional ballot.
Krug said Haley was not on the township's list to vote and that there was nothing he could do. Krug then said Haley "demanded to vote" and then threatened to call the state and the police. Krug then said he slammed his phone down on the table and told Haley to use his phone. Haley said Krug then told him to get out of the building.
"I can't allow him in the middle of an election to challenge me," Krug said.
Police officers from the Genesee County Sheriff's Department showed up and talked to both Haley and Krug.
"I was denied my right to vote," Haley said. "All I wanted to do was vote. He (Krug) was very rude and opinionated."
The Genesee County Sherriff's officer asked Krug if there was anything he could do to straighten out the matter. Krug called officials and found Haley was still registered in the city of Fenton.
Krug and Haley talked after the incident and Haley planned to go to to vote.
