Preliminary Reports of PA Problems
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that some Pennsylvania voters have been left off the polling place roster and in other cases the party affiliation listed next to their names is incorrect (see here). There are also reports of machine breakdowns and long lines (see here and here). The extent of the problems is unclear. See page 13 of this in-depth EL@M report for an analysis of how Pennsylvania law treats the problem of long lines discouraging individuals from voting. Check back for further updates.
