Election Law Center: Early Voting: Slow, Election Day Voting: Fast

by - February 14, 2013

It appears that many of the slowest longest lines to vote in November were at early voting sites.  This was especially true in Florida.  In the State of the Union speech the President talked about Desaline Victor from Miami.  For reasons not in the speech, and not in any press accounts, Ms. Victor waited in a long line for early voting.  Lines on election day tended to be much shorter than early voting lines. 

It was a confounding choice.  Why would voters choose to stand in long lines for early voting when election day lines were quicker and shorter?
