Voting machines in Richmond, Virginia

The NAACP had sued the state last week, saying that election officials had not allocated enough voting machines to largely minority precincts in Richmond, Virginia Beach and Norfolk, and that voters are likely to face such long lines that many will go home instead of waiting, essentially being disenfranchised.
