John, I could not open your video, so if this is the same, I'll ask Perrie to delete it.

Proud of those people.

I served nearly 16 months in Vietnam----I can surely and proudly stand in line for hours if necessary to have my voice heard.

VOTE!

Some people will leave or never come when they see these lines. The answer is not to make people proud to stand in line for four hours to vote, the answer is to force the government to open more polling places.  This is Republican voter suppression in action.

That is true.  Voter suppression by anyone is treason and a slap in the face of all who sacrificed for our democracy.  If ever there was a need for The Second Amendment solution this is it.

Some will.  But you know what?  Personally speaking, I don't care how long the lines are.  I will do whatever it takes to vote Trump out of office.  Early voting starts tomorrow here in Irving.  For the first time in a long time I feel like my vote really will count.  I can't wait for this ridiculous man and his entire family to get the hell out of my White House.

Australia has the right idea - voting is MANDATORY, and a fine is imposed if you DON'T vote, unless you have a lawful excuse.

Now we know why more people than ever want to vote by mail.

I counted 174 people waiting in a single file line to get into that polling place and vote.

It appears that they were social distancing, so they must be Democrats.

That's how life is in a repub controlled state.  I voted in the comfort of my own living room here in CA.  This year I've opted to deliver it to the box at my county elections office myself.

So how is the in person voting going in California? Any lines? Will there be as we get closer? And good for you delivering it. That will make sure it gets there and counted. Only thing I can see is that as far as the POTUS race, I will be negating your vote.

It's been a while since I've voted in person but for my entire life, and I'm 62 now, I've never had to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes.  If a state wants people to vote they can get it done.  It's not that hard.  Georgia doesn't want these people to vote.  That's obvious.  Nobody is that incompetent.

The long lines were at most voting centers. People were still in line at 10 PM tonight. The number of early voters broke all records in GA.

No one should have to wait four hours to vote and we shouldnt act like it is a good thing. Some people will leave the line or never go. They need to open more polling places and /or get more voting machines immediately. 

 
 
 
Kavika
6.1.1  Kavika   replied to  JohnRussell @6.1    3 weeks ago

I agree and many people are waiting a lot longer than 4 hours. GA had a fiasco in the last election and don't seem to have a handle on in-person voting.

Brian Williams on MSNBC just said that some people in Georgia waited in line for 11 hours to cast their vote today.

Ummmmm was yesterday the only day to early vote? There are plenty more opportunities as I see it.

Today was the first day for in person early voting in Texas and both places near me were creating traffic jams  on our way to the doctors.

Don't get old Jim, you will find that your doctor quickly becomes one of your most frequently visited friends.

Such drama!

They've only got three more weeks to vote

Voter suppression is a left wing myth.

Looks like maybe some folks aren't too smart if they are waiting that long.

Suwanee only has about 20,000 residents, and early voting started today and runs through October 30. That is 19 days of early voting, plus election day voting, plus mail-in voting.

Assuming that 1/2 of residents will vote (kind of a stretch there), that leaves 10,000 people to vote in a total of 20 days, which is only 500 people per day.

This seems like a big deal, but it just isn't, really.

If you have 175 people or more waitng in line to vote you dont have enough voting machines or enough polling places, period. 

Or maybe you want everyone assigned a time and a day when they can vote. 

The precinct I live in in Chicago has a lot less than 20,000 voters and I have never waited more than 10 minutes to vote in my life. Each precinct has 400 to 500 voters and appx 10 voting booths. There are 2000+  precincts in Chicago.

That is clearly your opinion.

I clearly suggested NO such thing.

I am suggesting that there is plenty of time to vote for those people opposed to waiting in such long lines. Good God, there are 20 DAYS to vote---and that is assuming that no one votes by mail or absentee ballot, all 10,000 people actually are eligible and do vote, which is a real stretch.

Plenty of time.

A lot of fussing over basically nothing.

How many hours does it take for 500 people to vote per day Tex?

Have it your way then.

But I am still not going to do the math for you.

Perhaps before doing the MATH, you should research how many voting machines there are.

Or not, I don't give a damn.

The lines were long at many of the voting centers, not just the one mentioned in the article. GA. broke all records for early voting. At last count 126,000 votes were cast. That is a good thing as it shows a lot of engagement from voters.

I have voted in France for forty years. I have never waited more than five minutes. 

Voting is on Sunday. 

Voting is for at most three offices - usually just one. (No voting for cops or judges or dog-catchers...)

If American elections are fucked up, it's because Americans are satisfied with fucked-up elections. 

Duh...

How true Bob, the requirements for Atty General in TX are that he/she be 18 and have lived in the district they vote in for at least 12 months.

They need not be a practicing Attorney or a Judge.

And they appointed, then elected a guy indicted 3 times for securities fraud in 2014....still being investigated

and they say there's no good ole boy club at the top of TX politics

 
 
 
Bob Nelson
11.1.1  Bob Nelson  replied to  Split Personality @11.1    3 weeks ago

A job like Atty Gen should be "appointed with the advice and consent"... That wouldn't stop cronyism, but it would be much more up-front.
