Thu Mar 24, 2016, 12:27 AM

I join all voters in both parties who suffered the long lines in Arizona.

Maricopa County election officials should have seen what was coming. Primary turnout spiked in at least one, sometimes both parties ever since the beginning of last month. And to provide 21 POLLING PLACES IN A MAJOR METROPOLITAN AREA is beyond stupid. I don't know whether the County Clerk is an elected official, but if so, I hope voters hold him or her accountable.

1. It was a feature, not a bug.

Expect to see voter suppression in all Republican states this fall.

9. Where did you get the idea that I'm disinterested????!!!!

You are really off the mark. Edited to add - don't call me by name and imply that we are buddies or something. You've twisted the clear intention of my post 180 degrees from what I said, and put false words on my mouth. I could turn around and accuse you by name of something, but I won't.

I suggest that you self delete your post as it is patently false and I consider it a personal call out and insult.

11. You think that's cute, to mock voters forced to line up for house to make use of their franchise?

 

Seriously? Is that a Hillary thing? It sure seems that many of her supporters have been enjoying this shameful display.

No one lines up to vote in my State. I pity those abused Arizonans.

(In a nutshell, the lines are the fault of the voters, for getting in line, and those pesky candidates, for coming to the state and "hyping" the election.)

4. It was pure idiocy

 

I can't imagine what devoid of reason occurred that they imagined 60 polling places would suddenly accommodate 200.

10. Do you? It seems to me you join a cohort that mocks those longsuffering voters and they are

 

in this thread mocking and you are not bothering to object you are making Bernie supporters object. Cake and eat it too. Half measures.

17. There is no other way of putting it, RandySF

 

it was a damn disaster.

And one of them had to be evacuated due to a bomb threat.

That has to be the messiest managing I've ever seen.

18. I wonder what's going happen in SF

They reduced polling places here because nearly everyone votes by nail (which Is what I've done ever since I moved to California). We also have early voting so hopefully it won't a huge issue.
