Ohio voting concerns right out of the gate

Posted By on November 4, 2008

voteEarly voting problems are already being noticed in Ohio, at least in my precinct — or perhaps I’m just being hypersensitive?  I haven’t cast my ballot yet (waiting for line to shorten), but my wife needed to arrive at the polls early this morning before work — 7:00 AM. She stood in line for a little longer than an hour and noticed that their was a shortage of access cards and that three of the electronic voting machine were down. Poll workers have already made calls to get them back and running and also commented that the line was already formed at the door about 5:30 AM when they arrived. It could get testy if the vote is close in Ohio; expect to hear “voter suppression” comments due to issues at the polls.
