Super Tuesday fury as ‘thousands of
voters’ in black and Latino neighbour-
hoods forced to queue for hours in Texas

Voters from predominantly black and Latino neighbourhoods were forced to wait for hours to cast their ballot in Texas on Super Tuesday after long lines were reported at some polling stations. Election officials in the Houston area were forced to send in additional voting machines as thousands of people reportedly waited for up to five hours to vote at one station. The long waits came after the closure of hundreds of polling stations across Texas by the Republican-led state government since 2012. MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow suggested voting difficulties had been caused in part by the “systematic” closing of stations in areas with high turnout for minority

Comments:

A key source of delays is likely a lack of proper identification, plus showing up at the wrong polling place. See also the same general slowness in completing transactions at drivers license bureaus, grocery stores, and other such places where there's a line and procedures to follow, to the point where I can predict which lines will move fast and which will move slowly based on a quick demographic profiling of the attendant and the people on line. Just the way it is, but to radical leftists, it's an evil Republican plot to disenfranchise minority voters.

Actually, the delay is probably more because the state just recently changed how people vote. I had to wait over an hour at an election last year, and I'm in a very small town. In the last election, there were 2 voting machines to "create" your ballot and one machine to "cast" your ballot. Before that, we had 5 or 6 machines to input votes, and things moved along much more quickly. My county made adjustments for the primary by adding additional ballot-creating machines. If precincts did not experience a large turnout for the previous election, they may not have known that their new system (and the fewer number of ballot-creating machines) would be inadequate. But by all means, let's accuse everyone of being racissssssss! That's so much easier, doncha know?

Here in fly over country, we vote so simply. Check ID, sign the book, pick up ballot, mark ballot, hand to helper who puts in ballot machine. the only wait may be for a voting booth. In and out usually in 10 minutes at the most. Why screw things up with technology that will probably let them cheat.

Texas' 254 counties are responsible for conducting their own elections. Track their own registered voters, set up precincts, staff the precincts. Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and El Paso are ALL run by democrats. This a LOCAL democrat issue, not Republican state issue.

The right to vote is so terribly important and valuable, that people should be provided with the opportunity to vote, as many times as they like, from the comfort of their easy chairs without leaving home. Per Rachael Maddow, "the brain".

Here in MN we have a whacky idea! We take a paper ballot...fill in the circles next to our candidate and then insert it into a machine where it is scanned and tabulated! The problem we always have are trunk loads of ballots (all for the liberal candidate) discovered a day or two after the election! A final total needed is always good to have before the cheating starts like nobody’s beeznus! Ya hey!

I am in Houston. Houston is in Texas. I am certain I saw a notice on line that said if you want to vote in Texas you can go to ANY polling station regardless of where you live. If you're in an hours long line. get on line and find out where the short lines are. If you're too dumb to do so you're a Democrat.

First point: This is The Independent, very far from a reliable source. Second point: They quote Mad Cow....also very far from a reliable source. And from #1's comment. Interesting info. Our machines create the ballot, print it out, you examine the printed ballot and then feed it into the same machine to be counted. Paper ballots are retained for recount purposes.

#3 is correct that the places with voting problems are in Democratic areas. Since this is a primary, Democratic officials are responsible for the voting locations, subject to general laws in the State of Texas election laws. Likewise, Rebublican county chairmen are responsible for GOP voting locations. One of the big problems with the Dem voting locations is that Democrats did not show up for work. GOPers are accustomed to showing up and working. 'Nuff said. No racism involved.

Jeez!! I live in Texas. They have had early voting for at least 10 days. I voted last Friday. No line, no waiting, and the local Constable was giving out free hot dogs, brats, and polish sausage in the parking lot. (He wasn't on the ballot). And, yes, any voting place will let you vote.

Some counties in Texas, like mine (Guadalupe Co.) have gone to "vote centers." You can vote at any location in the county and they will pull up the ballot (on a touch screen with a paper ballot that you insert into a scanner) for your precinct. Since my son turned 18 a few months ago, this was his first election, so he and his daddy headed to the "vote center" around 6 pm. Yeah, we stood in line for about an hour. So what? Of course, we had our picture ID and our voter card at the ready. Had a couple heated races for local offices (sadly, my candidates lost), but I could have early-voted up to 2 weeks ahead of time as I usually do.

Many of us, white, black and brown had to wait in long lines yesterday. I am one of those. My town is fairly small and there were several polling places, but the ballot was 44 pages (one page for each race and resolution) and the touch-screen machines take a little bit of time. I doubt the delays being reported in this article had much to do with race at all.

Could it be that there are MORE minorities wanting to vote and that they are coming to vote Republican??? Without proper PHOTO ID, it is going to take time to properly validate a voter and that might hold things up. it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with disenfranchising those who want to vote. Our polls had many waiting in line after 5pm (after WORK) to vote, and they were in line and got to vote!

Here in Fort Bend County Texas, very conservative, there was a long line. But one reason was that there were two pages of candidates including bills. I studied and filled out a sample ballot ahead of time to move things along. Everyone should. Some didn’t. So, many people spent a considerable amount of time reading and deciding. But even with that the line moved quickly because of the availability of 30 voting machines.

I worked as a campaign worker at at Fort Bend polling place. Many walked out discovering the wait, which reached over an hour most of the evening. A few had the sense to ask where else they could vote. I knew of a few other nearby locations and helped anyone who asked, regardless of affiliation. In my conversations it seemed many were of the opinion that turnout was higher than expected. Early voting numbers were also high.

The FBI missed opportunities to stop domestic terrorists from killing Americans because field offices failed to further investigate individuals who had been labeled homegrown violent extremists, the Justice Department watchdog said in a scathing report released Wednesday. At least six terrorists who later carried out attacks killing a total of 70 people were on the FBI’s radar prior to the attacks. However, the agents quickly closed the cases, concluding the suspects were not threats to national security, according to the Justice Department inspector general. Among the more high-profile individuals the FBI failed to recognize as a potential source of terrorism were Omar Mateen, who killed 49

What Super Tuesday tells us is that a lot of Democrats would rather risk losing to President Trump with Joe Biden than allow a socialist like Bernie Sanders to hijack their party. That’s good for America, but it’s also a treacherous Hail Mary pass for the party.

He went on to give a good speech about healing the nation, and dutifully kept to the script on his teleprompter.
