President Obama said the long hours that some voters spent waiting to cast ballots in November require changes to the system, but a former Justice Department elections expert told WND the facts show there really isnt a problem.
J. Christian Adams worked in the Justice Departments civil rights division and has been a vocal critic of what he sees as imbalanced enforcement of voting rights laws by the Obama administration. Adams is now an editor at Pajamas Media and author of Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama White House.
Adams said the horror stories mentioned by Obama were rare and misleading.
MIT did a study and found that the average wait for Americans was 13 minutes on Election Day. So the stories that youre hearing about six, seven, eight-hour waits are usually coming from places where people actually decided to vote early, Adams said. Early voting is a worse experience than voting on Election Day because there are fewer places to vote. The lady that the president talked about, Desiline Victor, went to early voting on the very first day of early voting, which is the absolute worst choice you could ever make. Thats exactly why she had a long line, including the fact that they had a bunch of ballot questions in Miami-Dade County (Florida). So the president chose a real outlier example when he did the State of the Union.
Adams said there are ways to tweak the system for the better, including encouraging people to vote on Election Day, limiting the number of ballot initiatives to help speed up the lines and moving to a digital check-in process that would also shorten the wait.

so the stories that youre hearing about six, seven, eight-hour waits are usually coming from places where people actually decided to vote earlyAnd more to the point -- how bad could that be, since voting for the POTUS is only done once every four years; #2, if it's so long to wait to vote, why were there Zero's supporters all over the country voting fiive and six times?
I still can’t understand why early voting exists. If means so damn much to you show up on the big day. Otherwise, does it really matter whether or not you get around to it?
More importantly. Why do nearly every example that Obama uses to illustrate a “wrong” or “problem” with American society, turn out to be flat out lies (man’s wife died because Republicans cut health insurance, when she had insurance) etc.
The people are pick these “examples” must be so low on the competency scale that they would be sent to clean out the honey pots in many other countries.
When you pick an example for anything, you’d better be damned sure that they are legit, not frauds, cheats, or outright liars.
What we need here at FR is a list of Obama’s greatest lies and examples, put in chronology order from his election run in 2008 to the present, subdivided by topic.
This would be more impressive in showing why Obama should be named the “Liar in Chief” than anything else.
Liars could also include Michele the First Wookie, Susan Rice, Jay Carney and Robert Gibbs, Janet Napolitano (”I know nothing”), Brennan, Dempsey, Pistole, Holder, etc.
Oh what a lovely sight that list would be (complete with photos of the “victims” and of the liars).
One can dream, can’t they?
Early voting needs to be done by absentee ballot to there is a paper trail and possibly even thumb print used to verify identity. While info not believe this election swung only on cheating, it was significant and contributed with other factors to the outcome.
the 5 and 5 time voters kept repeatedly getting on line, that must be what took 7 and 8 hours, hah!
If there isn’t a real problem, they’ll make one up. Story of Obama, I loathe him.
Why bother voting at all? Its all rigged by Obama in his favor. Its disillusionment believing any future elections will have any honesty as long as his people has infiltrated the elections.
If all ballots were mailed to registered voters by certified mail, to be filled out at home, signed with a signature that could be verified, then mailed in or dropped off, it would practically eliminate voter fraud.
