Voter lawyers report some problems

ballotboxAttorneys on poll-watching duty are reporting some voting problems in precints across the country today. Tens of thousands of lawyers have been dispatched to polling stations around the country as part of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law‘s Election Protection program and other projects.

According to the Election Protection website and media reports, problems have been reported in Missouri, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and New Jersey.

Reports range from machines not working and discrepancies with voter roll data, to general disorganization and chaos amid the long lines. One lawyer in Virginia tells DC Dicta: “Machines are out in several precincts. They’re going to paper ballots. It’s to be a very late night.”
