Which voters waited on long lines to cast their ballots on Tuesday? According to a survey by the AFL-CIO, Obama voters were much more likely to wait on lines longer than 30 minutes than Romney voters, with blacks and Hispanics especially vulnerable.
The long lines were so bad, it took just two minutes for President Obama to mention them in his victory speech on Tuesday, with a rare flash of anger: “By the way, we have to fix that.”

It’s hard to believe that with forethought, planning, and some sort of standardized elections system, our country couldn’t ensure that voting lines and snafus of the kind we saw on Tuesday won’t happen again. It’s a big deal.
