    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Tuesday, November 02, 2004

    Maybe voting late is the answer 

    Philadelphia reader Marc Butakis reports that he was met with an hourlong line when he showed up to vote at 7:15 a.m. - 15 minutes after the polls opened. At 8:15, when he signed in to vote, he was number 76 out of approximately 1,000 potential voters in his district.

    "When I left, I would estimate that there were at least 150 people waiting in line behind me," he said. "My best guess is that 25% of the precinct will have voted by 9:30 a.m."

    We wonder if there will still be lines at the normally busy post-work hours.
