Voters in key states face long lines, equipment failures

Recommended Posts

Tens of millions of Americans descended on the polls today as election watchdogs reported hours-long lines, sporadic equipment failures and confusion about polling places — but few signs so far of violence or vigilantism.

Problems cropped up Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and other key battleground states that could decide whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump wins the presidency. Most involved election administration issues that have plagued the polls for decades, however, rather than incidents of voter fraud or intimidation fueled by Trump's warning of a "rigged" election.

A coalition of more than 100 civil rights and voting rights groups reported that more than half of the complaints received in the morning about voter harassment came from Pennsylvania. Those included voters being asked to provide specific forms of identification that are not required, and Hispanic voters finding no Spanish speakers to assist them, which also occurred in Florida.

“There is tremendous disruption at the polls today," said Wade Henderson, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. "This election may be the most chaotic election … in the last 50 years.”

Don't you have to learn English to take the citizenship test here or are we printing them out in every language?

Nope, that's discrimination.
They can take it in any language and they can use an interpreter if they're illiterate.

The laws only apply to persons who are third generation Americans or more it seems.

If they can't speak English (well, now Spanish) or read in any language how can they get a job?
They can't possibly contribute in any meaningful way and are destined to spend the rest of they're lives on welfare.
Additionally, many welfare babies end up being life long welfare recipients as well. It's a cycle of dependency.
