It's a great article, but I don't buy the argument that the minorities were the primary victims of long lines. Close to 120 million people voted in that election. The lines at my polling place in Atlanta were so long that I waited five hours to vote.

Geez.. there was nobody in line at my precinct in downtown Cincinnati at 4pm... Then again, it was in Church, so maybe Democrat voters found that intimidating.
Five hours to vote I doubt the British people would put up with more than a 10 - 15 minute wait and then that would be too long.
On the other hand for a sale bargain or queuing for a ticket for a sporting event or show we will queue all night.
For the record I waited about 2 minutes to vote last election in Britain.
