I just waited almost 2 HOURS to VOTE IN LOS ANGELES... I called ABC
news to tell them, they were STUNNED.

There are still more than 200 people waiting to vote in line in the West Adams district, no room even in the parking lot.

There were exactly 5 poll workers working their ASSES off for us... no one was grumbling, everyone was patient. It was rather amazing, but so distressing.

How many are going to be too tired after a long day at work to stand for hours to vote?

1. That poll station SHOULD stay open if there is a line at 8PM PST
If it doesn't then I know who to call, Bev Harris!

9. Do you mean they are Democratic women?
Two small letters but they are the difference between what they call us and what we call ourselves.

Don't use their vocabulary. Don't ever fall for it.

We are Democrats who belong to the Democratic party.

6. Legally they have to allow people to vote
As long as people are in line they have the right to vote.

12. Took me 40 minutes to vote
They changed the polling station from the local high school to a freaking strip mall with a 7-11 in it.
