democracy at work08 Nov 2006
Hell, why try to suppress voter turnout when you can just make them wait until they give up?
Near the end of election night, two women decided not to vote at West End Middle School’s Wharton campus because the lines were too long.
One was enticed back inside with a chair. The other eventually decided she couldn’t wait any longer.
“The line is too long. It’s not even moving. I think it’s a conspiracy to keep people from voting, and it’s working,” said the woman who declined to give her name.
There were only two voting machines at the Wharton campus. Rhonda Hamilton who had been driving people to the polls all day as a volunteer for the Democratic party said there were 10 machines where she voted earlier in the day in Belle Meade.
Seriously, how hard is this? 2 machines?? TWO?
