I realize that voting is more important than going to the store but is there any business in America that would survive a day with a seven hour wait? This is a disgrace. There should be ways to speed up the voting process even for this election. Sample ballots could be passed out for people in line to get familiar with. If the bottleneck is the voting booth and paper ballot are used tables could be set out for anyone who does not mind voting without a curtain. We can bring disaster relief to the victims of Sandy but we can not figure out how to fix the voting problem in this country, for shame. No One in America Should Have to Wait 7 Hours to Vote - Andrew Cohen - The Atlantic No matter who wins the presidential race, no matter which party controls Congress, can we at least agree as reasonable adults that when it comes to voting itself the election of 2012 is a national disgrace? We ask our sons and daughters, our husbands and wives, to give their lives abroad for noble concepts like "freedom" and "democracy." And yet we are content as a nation, and as a people, to tolerate another cycle of election rules that require our fellow citizens to sacrifice a measure of basic human dignity simply to exercise their right to vote.
