Election Day, Town Hall, Maplewood NJ 
(click on the picture to see it at larger size)

The line of people waiting to vote, as it snaked around the Town Hall meeting chamber. At this point the wait was about an hour and fifteen minutes. Several times during the day the wait was well over 1 1/2 hours, and it was no less than 30 minutes from 6:00 AM, when polls opened, until 6:00 PM. The voters in my district, District 3, were luckier than those in District 6. Their line snaked through the hallways and out into the parking lot.

Remarkably, very few people left - no more than a dozen. But we sure could have used another couple of voting machines.
