Long lines expected for Tuesday

In spite of the intensity of early voting, high turnout is expected for Tuesday in Colorado, Georgia, Illinois (Chicago Tribune and AP), Michigan, and Texas. In Ohio, the Secretary of State announced that “if lines get ‘unreasonably long’ on Election Day, voters in Franklin County and other counties using touch-screen machines must be told that they have the option of casting a paper ballot.” In New Jersey, an Election Day Hotline was set up for voters to report irregularities.
