America Votes

Millions of Americans turned out to vote Tuesday.  There were reports that it took hours to cast ballots at some polling places in Florida, Ohio and other states. There also were reports in Pennsylvania that poll workers were illegally asking voters to show identification. “I hope everyone understands that there has been an effort to suppress the vote,” Sen. Bernie Sanders told radio host Ed Schultz on Tuesday. “We can have all kinds of differences of opinion about where we want this country to go, but you have folks out there who are deliberately suppressing the vote, making it difficult for Americans to participate in the political process. I think that’s the lowest of the low … Our goal should be that in a democratic society we want the voter turnout to be as large as possible.”
