    This is stupid. They should spread it out better to avoid large crowds during a PANDEMIC!

    Gotta be goofy asl to sit in them long as lines

    This is crazy. It should not take more than 15 minutes to vote even on election day. When ever I have voted in Australia I am in and out of the polling station in 5 minutes no lines like this. Plus we use simple paper ballots no complex voting machines or computers

    I live in a “white “country that traditional is republican. The democratic governor has shut down ALL the polling places except for one using the virus as a excuse when the county has has 100 cases since this all started and that most likely was from the adjoining state that test high and every weekend they flood into the region. So tell me how its voter repression from the republicans.,

    A record number are turning out for early voting. Lines seam to be longer than usual.
    In other news, stupid people can’t figure out why lines would be longer if more people show up.

    Remember the violent rioting, destruction of property, murders, and attacks on citizens that democrat backed groups have committed all year. Remember the failure of democrat governors to do anything about these crimes. Remember the approval of these crimes by democrat Congressional members. Remember Cannon Hinnant. Back the Blue. Vote for Law and Order. TRUMP 2020.

    Georgia…isn’t that one of the states that brings voting machines to your door if you’re a registered white republican?

  17. M P Reply

    In seriousness, this only points out the utter idiocy of NOT having the vote online. And before you babble on about “hacking”, the entire point of it is so YOU the voter, can track your ballot, see that it’s recorded accurately. You can’t do that with voting machines.
    But, gee, guess who’s deadly set against your voting rights? Conservatives.

    Republicans hate democracy and America itself. They want a dictatorship and know they can only “win” by cheating and suppressing the vote. We cannot let them destroy our country and the future for our children and grandchildren.

  21. cocodjambo Reply

    It’s funny how many blame Trump and republicans for racism, but they’re cool with Biden saying “if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black”, “poor Kids are just as bright as white kids”, and so on.
    P. S.: Trump 2020!

    These voting lines are as chaotic as the POTUS and this Administration and states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania will not receive their mailing in ballots until election day. Who is the WATCHDOG for the American Democratic Process. How can this be happening

    Blame John Kemp for this type of voter suppression. He is in charge of the voting machines and polling places in that state…good job everyone for enduring…..✌🏾✌🏾

  31. Markus Rother Reply

    Keep in mind: That’s not normal for a developed country! I voted in every election on every level here in Germany. The longest time I had to wait to cast my ballot was 15 minutes once. In Germany elections are always on Sundays, so that everybody has the opportunity to vote, and normally you walk into the voting facility, which you can always reach by foot, and just vote.

  32. Jeffrey Kahn Reply

    GOP voter suppression is working as planned. The lines are insane. The GOP excuses are lies. The GOP doesn’t want black voters and they have blocked people of color from voting for years. What they didn’t plan on is a determined black vote.

    Watch “”HELLO” trump parody” on YouTube

    Humble Driver’s trump parody “HELLO”

    “Hello” trump parody

    If it’s been four years, oh my how time flies.
    It’s time to vote for me and not the other guy.

    There’s been so much said about me.
    HELLO, what you’ve heard is Make-Believe.

    They make fun of what I say. They make fun of how I stand. They laugh at me when I’m drinking with both my tiny hands.

    They know just want to say those mean words make me feel blue.
    I’m here to tell those people, “I Hate You.”

    There’s nothing they can do to stop me. The fake virus made me cough and made me sneeze.

    I stand here before all of you like Superman.
    HELLO I now have immunity.

    Sleepy Joe is still confused.
    He can’t put his words together. The Supreme Court
    will be on the white (I mean right side now and forever.

    Hear the words I say. The the Democrats haven’t a clue.
    Let me tell the Liberals, “I hate you.”

    HELLO. What you get is what you see.

    You got it right the first time you voted for the best. And after the election, perhaps I’ll invite a guest.

    You know what I mean. (wink wink) You know what I plan to do. The weather could be stormy even for a Jew.

    Having people spend 4-7 hrs.in line, this process is in the 1940’s. This is 2020 and this is considered the “Best Practices”, I don’t think so. Soon it will be cold, icy, or snowing, and the disabled and seniors are going to be in a very difficult position in order to vote. Americans deserve a better voting system.

  78. Janet Beebe Reply

    I wish there was a petition that all those “Brave People ” could sign, and money for lawyers to sue the State of Georgia with a “Voter Suppression & Voter Prejudice” case to the Supreme court of Georgia.
    Americans deserve to be treated fairly, and not have to stand for 4-7 hrs to vote. Voting should be a “National Holiday”…

    The last 3 years Ive had to do early voting in Australia. Ive walked in voted and walked out and not once did I wait more then a minute. If your waiting hours …don’t blame the machines or running out of paper.. what’s really happening is Voter Suppression. If they get away with it this time.. it will be even worse next time. Rain Hail Shine get out and vote.

    I voted.. BLUE across the board.

    Never waited more than 3 minutes in the UK and I’m in my 60s. You are very backward in America. Just add more polling stations are you that stupid or is it corruption.

      Same here in Spain. Voting takes 5 minutes at most. In America, they don’t want you to vote regardless of what they say.
