Electoral Dysfunction Erupts: Dateline, New York City, September 13, 2012
It’s election day in my fair city. Primary election day.
Being the dutiful citizen that I am, I set off to vote mid-day. It’s a beautiful day here. The sun is shining. A light breeze is blowing. It’s in the high 70s.
Now, I don’t want to brag, but I’m a pretty organized person about my voting. So I took out the nice form the board of elections sent me a month ago to confirm my polling place location. And it was the same one it’s been for the last nine years.
Three polling places and more than an hour walking to get to the right one.
One out of two races on the ballot incorrectly printed.

#2: Why is it so hard to get this voting thing right??
