Already Problems at Polling Places


You may have trouble getting onto the Election Protection Coalition’s Our Vote Live page, because a lot of people are already having trouble at voting booths and are flooding the site.

The electoral watchdogs report that at one polling place in Kansas City, Missouri, “hundreds of voters were given misinformation and told to return at a time after the polls close,” and “elderly and disabled voters had their registration papers torn up in front of them after voters stated that they could not wait in the prohibitive lines.”

Other complaints: broken machines in Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania (even in Philly). A Jersey correspondent says, “police in uniform r standing @ the entrance to polls. officer says they’ll be at all locations.”
