Argentina

A week ago, primaries for the election of the president were held in Argentina, but in the city of Rawson, the most discussed event was not their results, but a strange incident at one of the polling stations.

This happened when an elderly woman with completely gray hair came to the polling station opened at the Escuela 14 de Febrero school of the San Juan department, local media reported.

She went to table 698, put down her ID card, and then retired to one of the booths with the ballot box. A minute passed, another, but the woman did not leave the booth.

Meanwhile, other voters came up, and a small queue had already formed. People began to grumble and ask the authorities to check what was going on in the booth.

A group of military men observed how the elections were held at each polling station, and after people complained, they went into the voting booth.

To everyone's surprise, they found it completely empty. The woman seemed to have disappeared. And when those sitting at table No. 698 began to look for her ID, they could not find it, it also mysteriously disappeared.

Many people saw the gray-haired old woman enter the booth, but no one saw her leave it, and even more so no one saw her come to the table to pick up the documents.

People began to assume that the woman could be a ghost, and the head of this section even said that magic could be involved or the old woman could be a witch.

There was also a version that it was the spirit of a deceased teacher or a resident of one of the nearby houses and that she just wanted to fulfill "her civic duty" by coming to the vote.

To all the skeptics, the station manager said "think what you want" and added that both ordinary people and the military had witnessed this incident.
