Polling Woes & Long Lines Across America
This (and accompanying photo) from NowPublic member lmayer33 :
"Long lines at the polls in Dane County, WI. Thought it odd that my
ballot wasn't scanned. Also thought it odd that three people handled it
and could clearly see how I voted. This line wrapped around the corner
to the left..and behind me to the right. It is actually three lines.
I'm glad I was on the left!"
It's not clear if these are just simple aberrations to be expected in putting together a massive operation every two years or so, or whether the world's leading democracy still can't figure out how to vote?
Then again if voting were really thought to be that important, wouldn't it be a national holiday like it is say in Taiwan, a country that had its first real presidential election in 1996?
