    Might this not keep a lot of their older supporters from voting?  

    But as some have mentioned, for some mysterious reason, older whiter people seem to have much more quick and easy access to voting stations than younger, blacker people.  Here in the 21st Century modern age.

      I am 58, going on 59 and there is no way in heck that I could stand in line for up to 6 hours without a potty break.  However, with that being said, I would do it anyway, while wearing a depends, for I would not want all the vets in my family's history to haunt me and smack me silly, not to mention my son and husband.

      Miami-Dade went for Obama and has a majority Democratic voting population. But the political leadership (which in theory is nonpartisan) is right-of-center and in lock step with corporate interests. Their older supporters? Not so much as their opponent's supporters.
