Voters Persist in Voting


What, they’re not done voting yet? Fat lines reported in Williamsburg, Carroll Gardens, Flatbush, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope — you get the idea (but not so much in Van Cortlandt Village).

Turnout also remains heavy in the real America, as shown by an old lady in a lawn chair in Louisiana, a “flood” of voters in Connecticut, hastily-deputized new poll workers in Western Pennsylvania, and lines in the rain in Utah.

Different story in Texas, though. “I waited in line exactly 0 minutes as voter 161 at my poll today,” reports Mike Orren. He attributes it to early voting.
