    It's not all simply the machines/process.  I live in a heavily Republican area of Montgomery County (Dayton) and we experienced over hour long waits (nothing like others - but this compares to a usual wait of 15 minutes in the past).  Discovered the county has been consolidating voting sites so instead of having two precincts at our location (with 4 teams of pollworkers registering people) we had four precincts at our location with only 3 teams of pollworkers.  Local budget cuts are to blame here as well.

    •  I always had multiple precints at my 20 year (0+ / 0-)

      polling station.  No lines.  Guess not that many people voted back then.  1980 to 2000.  We also were the first to go scantron.  That for as long as I can remember.
