Voting problems, fraud, scandals plague polling places across America: District of Columbia

424

DISTRICT COLUMBIA – November 16, 2018

Voters across the D.C. region endured lousy weather and long waits to cast ballots. Despite an unprecedented surge of early voting, polling places opened to long lines and stayed busy through sunset, according to WaPo.

D.C. Voters waited hours in sometimes heavy rain to cast their ballots at Shepherd Elementary School in Northwest Washington.

Voters packed in a polling station in Eastern Market, which is the polling location for precincts 88 and 89, experienced longer than usual wait times after the only ballot counting machine kept jamming and then broke down, WJLA reported.

Another machine was ready only two hours later.

“Just checked again at 5 pm. There are 3 ballot machines in there now, all working and the lines and wait times are down,” ABC7's Sam Ford added later.
