Election Morning Quip

My shul social hall is one of the polling places for our town. On election morning, as minyan in the shul bais medrash was ending, one of the regular shnorrers was standing by the front door collecting handouts. Meanwhile, voters were entering and exiting the building via the same door. Noticing the schnorrer, one of the minyan attendees commented:
"I think they may invalidate the election results here. There appears to be a gentleman collecting a poll tax!"
Wish I'd thought of that one!
