The Only People with the Right to Vote in Ohio Are People Who Can Afford to Take the Entire Day Off

reposted from queerbychoice

"Longest lines in the nation, last night, right here. Two voting machines, over a thousand people.

The emails sent to us early yesterday were saying two hours in line. The news is now saying, vaguely, 'more than four hours in line.' I am here to tell you: most people I knew waited seven or more.

Me, I stood ten hours in line."


That is a quote from this entry by gamesiplay, a student at Kenyon College in OHIO.
TEN HOURS IN LINE TO VOTE IN OHIO.

THAT'S WORSE THAN IN AFGHANISTAN.

This is a MAJOR NEWS STORY AND THEY ARE NOT COVERING IT ANYWHERE NEAR ENOUGH.

PS Katie just backdate your entry so it's the first one :-)
