Poor voting machine distribution

12:27 PM Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »
The NAACP has filed a lawsuit claiming that the government has failed to adequately prepare for the anticipated record turnout:
"The lawsuit claims that the state is violating the U.S. and Virginia
constitutions by not allocating enough voting machines, poll workers and polling
places -- particularly in precincts with high minority populations -- which
could result in long lines and lost votes.
The Advancement Project, a
national voter protection group, filed the lawsuit late Monday in U.S. District
Court in Richmond on the NAACP's behalf. It asks the state to move voting
machines to precincts most likely to have long waiting lines; keep polls open
for an extra two hours; and use paper ballots in some cases."


Makes me glad I live in Oregon with a mail-in ballot.
