Serious E-Voting Problems in Florida; Coalition Calls for Extended Polling Hours

E-voting machines in Broward County, Florida failed to start on time this morning, significantly delaying voting. The Election Protection Coalition (which includes EFF) is talking to the governor about keeping the polling places open longer. The Coalition is also considering legal action to that end. We will update this post with further information later.

Six years after the 2000 election debacle in Florida, election day horror stories like this persist. But the problems aren't limited to that state; as we noted earlier, many other cities are also experiencing machine malfunctions.
