    This is sad, regardless of one's politics, that voters would have to endure such needless hardship to vote.

    As an aside, what conclusions do you draw from the unusually high turn out for early voting in FL.

    The standard model? Or do you think this is something new outside the standard model?

    Has anyone asked why the waits were so long?
    There were ample voting machines so that was not the problem.
    The ballots were long with a lot of issues to vote on besides President.
    The long lines were because of uninformed and lazy voters. Voters whose first look at the ballot was when they were handed one at the early voting site.
    These voters are more responsible for long lines than Gov. Scott.
    The only way to shorten the lines is to keep the ballot simple.

    Voter suppression is very ugly.
