They are letting those that were waiting in line before the deadline to finish up and vote

they did not let new people or those that came after the deadline to vote

thats all

actually they cut the line off at 8:00 but they let those still in line vote, which may take 5 hours they are saying

Same thing here in WI, anyone in line by 8:00 gets to vote.


They tried to keep one open an extra hour and a half because it was closed in the morning but the courts said no.

Yep. People getting home from work and then voting.

They always do that here. A poll worker gets in line at the closing time and tells everyone arriving late that this is the end of the line.

good deal, people who get home from work late have jobs, people with jobs tend to lean to the republican, non welfare side

im cool with it if its regular working folks like us...

my problem with it is in "those other" districts... you know the ones... where the dems offer crack for votes...

By law, if you are in line when the polls close, you must be allowed to vote, no matter how long the line is.
