Lines are huge in early voting in Florida and Ohio. What do these states have in Common. Republican Governors. Both have tried and succeeded at making it more difficult to vote early. They know that most early voters vote Democrat.

This is an abomination! Something needs to be done about this at the Federal level for future elections. Governors should not have the final say in a Presidential voting/election policy, especially because there are partisan scum bags such as Rick Scott. Who the hell is this corrupt and deceitful idiot to disrupt and skew the right to vote.

What changed from past elections, with the early polling locations?

Once in the door, it is not taking any longer than last election.
Did they not increase the number of voting booths per location, to allow for population increases?

Is there now more paperwork to fill out, once in the door?
Is it a different protocol inside the polling location?

Nice try, but that is what people get for waiting until the last minute!

Voter fraud was created by the left and they are already attempting to do the same in this election. It has been reported in FL that democrat officials are keeping polls open later than they are supposed to be, and doing so without approval. I hope those ballots are thrown out!

Follow the rules lefties! You can't change things just to make sure you get the outcome you want. THis time around, the Republicans are not going to put up with it.

We should go back to one day voting to prevent fraud of dead people voting and others voting twice.

Early voting is where the most voting fraud seems to appear.

Voting day should be a holiday and no absentee ballots, except for military.

14 days... 8 days.... 30 days.... Why freak'n wait until the last day?
Everyone has choices in life, until they are taken away... why wait until the last day to vote early, you had a choice? Choices have consequences... Some are good and some are bad.

If you make a bad choice, the rest of us who made a good choice, should let you slide?

ROFL..now waiting lines are considered "voter suppression" ?

I don't necessarily look at that as a bad sign. Lines and wait times were also long in 2008. And they were long in suburban Maryland this year (overwhelmingly Democratic with a popular Democratic governor). I'd be more concerned if there were no lines, frankly.
