ATLANTA, GA (FOX News) – Election officials in Atlanta are now defending a decision to allow superstar Usher to bypass long lines to cast his ballot on election day. Voters forced to wait at the Roswell polling place were infuriated. Some were even more frustrated when usher took cellphone pictures of himself voting before posting them on twitter.

Election officials say the star was simply escorted to the front of the line to minimize distractions.

Fulton county commissioner Liz Hausmann says only a few people deserve such treatment, such as people with disabilities, the elderly and voters with small children.
