Dramatic moment Poll volunteer in fringe seat has heated exchange with voter: ‘You’re an asshole’
- Voter and labor volunteer in exchange of heated ballot boxes
- The verbal dispute occurred at the Heathcote headquarters.
A Labor volunteer has been filmed in an election day confrontation with a voter who told him to ‘fuck you’ when he tried to talk to him.
The verbal raid occurred in the Heathcote slum, south of Sydney, early Saturday.
The red-shirted volunteer in the video can be heard explaining how “nursing is leaving (the profession) in bulk,” but the voter is unimpressed.

The voter turns to the volunteer and yells in his face: ‘Is that so? Why don’t you go to hell?’
The Labor supporter mutters under his voice: ‘Why don’t you go fuck yourself?’
“You’re an asshole,” the angry voter replies before walking off.
The altercation is understood to have taken place outside the polling booths in Woronora in the Heathcote electorate.
Heathcote was won by the Liberal Lee Evans in the last election.
