Lines of 150 People and 90 Minute Waits in Akron, Ohio

| Tue Nov. 6, 2012 7:55 PM EST

Long lines for early voting in Akron, Ohio yesterday.

At 6:40 this morning, when the Joy Park Community Center in Akron, Ohio, opened up to voters, as many as 150 people were already in line. Two observers told Mother Jones that the polling place opened 10 minutes late due to troubles with one of its optical scanners, which tallies votes.

The community center also had trouble with an audio device meant to assist hearing-impaired voters, according to Daniel Greenfield, an election observer volunteering for the Obama campaign. The machines were back up and running two to three hours later, he said. It's unclear whether the troubles were caused by malfunctions or by poll workers not knowing how to operate the machines.
