Widespread Reports of Voting Problems Highlight Dire Need for Major Reform

It did not take long on Election Day to have reports of problems with voting in several states. 


These aren’t necessarily the result of intentional voter suppression right then and there at the local level—but they are a reminder of how broken and dysfunctional America’s voting systems are, and how badly we need nationwide reform that will improve voting access and security. We shouldn’t be relying on a few volunteers per precinct, or having people turned away because no one can find the voting machines that turn out to be locked away in a closet.
