    high turnout elections like 2008 or a local land issue a year ago there's never been a wait longer than 20 minutes or so. When we moved to this area 20 years ago we used to vote at the tiny township building, but after a few years and a big building boom the polling place was moved to a big, new church down the road. Places that refuse to use larger polling places when it becomes evident that they need it are deliberately making voting more difficult than it needs to be and there should be penalties for that.
