At United Methodist Church in Tenleytown, voters cast their ballots for the next president of the United States. “There are 12 paper ballot stations here, and one electronic ballot station,” said Pat Muñoz, a volunteer. “We have been encouraging voters to use the paper ballots because they are faster. Seven out of 8 voters have opted to use a paper ballot.”
We’ve heard reports that poll lines are unbearably long, but here’s some visual proof of it. This is a polling station in Levittown, Pennsylvania, my home town. Part of Bucks County, it was one of 304 voting districts that, combined, boasted a meager 36 percent voter turnout during the state’s April primary. If this photo suggests anything, however, it is perhaps that the turnout number will rise with this election.
