A Long Wait to Vote

Sarasota, Florida

It's two days before the election. This roving reporter has already voted. Come take a trip to an early voting polling place to see if the reports of unreasonably long lines are true.


There appears to be 150-200 voters standing in line to vote. About one voter every five minutes is getting in the building to vote. That's an estimated wait time in line of 12-16 hours.

As I stand there, many more cars drive up, look at the line and drive away. Elections shouldn't be so hard. Are they just incompetent or is something more sinister in play?

  1. We also have huge lines in NC... and I'm also not sure if it's just slow incompetence or something more sketchy.

  2. i can't help thinking it's awesome that there has been such long lines all over... people taking a greater interest in public issues is always a good thing
