    BALLOT LENGTH was a huge factor in the lines. The ballots are printed for each voter, and in counties that provide bilingual ballots, you could be looking at printing + scanning times for ten separate sheets PER VOTER. And it means delays are twice as bad in places with high Hispanic populations.

    That's why they're still counting in Miami-Dade.

    The solution has to be to remove partisans from the process. Anything short of that isn't going to cut it. We need to turn elections over to the courts.

    •  Why do you think the courts are non-partisan? (0+ / 0-)

      I am not sure of the partisanship of all judges, but a quick look at our US Supreme Court shows that it is anything but above partisanship.  That is more true than otherwise throughout the system, I suspect.
