Have Trouble at the Polls? Tell Voter Story

Monday, November 6th, 2006

Some of you may have noticed that new widget along the right of the blog from Voter Story (you may have to scroll down to see it); they’re doing a great service by compiling problems, obstacles, or mishaps that people encounter at the polls tomorrow. So, if you have trouble voting, fill it out and send it in to them. Once they compile them all, we’ll link back to that.

And if you have a problem that’s less procedural (wrong polling place, your registration isn’t on record, etc.) and more life-can-be-a-hassle (had to leave the house at 5am just to wait on line to vote), PLEASE post it here. We’re here through the elections and beyond, and after tomorrow is when our work really begins.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
