Man tries to vote as woman in niqab
A man in a niqab, a garment that only shows the eyes, tried to cast a vote, posing as a woman, in Amsterdam West in De Boomgaard elementary school. He presented a voting pass and a passport, belonging to a young woman, confirmed a spokesperson for the City. A staff member of the polling station in Bos en Lommer didn't think the eyes and eyebrows matched and asked to see 'her' face in a separate room. The man took off. It is unknown who the man was. The police were not alarmed.
