Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wait times to vote in the primary.

I'm watching Brian Williams and he's reporting wait times in the Texas primary of 1 hour in Austin and 2 and a half hours in Houston. Why is this even possible? Shouldn't voters demand more access to voting?

Can't they demand their local government either fix it or be voted out?

1. It will stop

 

as soon as the GOP is driven to extinction. Let's hope we get it done up and down the ballot this November!

4. My longest wait in early voting has been maybe 15 minutes.

 

The long wait was cool because I got to talk to people in line about stuff other than politics or religion.

8. Much better here in California.

 

Walked in and waited maybe 45 seconds while the guy ahead of me insisted on a privacy sleeve for his ballot. Whole thing took maybe two-and-a-half minutes.

Voting should be easy and universal. Putting up barriers sucks.
