Reporter Jennifer Jacobs has a rundown of polling place news.
This part of the story actually bothers me the most:
“It’s been unbelievable for a nonpresidential year,” said Gene Krumm, auditor in Dallas County, where some voters reported wait times of an hour and a half at the Waukee Christian Church.
Why are they waiting 90 minutes?!!!? Dallas county uses paper ballots, so it’s not a case of waiting for a touchscreen. It must be a slow sign-in process. This ought to be fixed! Shades of Ohio.
And I agree with the complaint about the ball point pens. It is too slow to fill in an oval with a fine point pen.
