Voter Shenanigans

Are you surprised? From TMZ:

So, check this out. Deerfield Beach, Fla. is one hour south of Palm Beach. Nearly 400 people were planted firmly in line at 6:15 this morning, waiting for the polls to open at 7:00 AM. There is one voting machine to accommodate all of them. The area almost entirely African American. Many of the people never have voted before. One woman was 101 years old. She was wheeled into the polling place and on her way out she said that before she died, she wanted to vote for a black man.Election monitors noticed a man in line who appeared to be a voter. Turns out he was a saboteur, telling people the Democrats were supposed to vote at a different location.Some of the voters said they were robocalled last night. The message -- Democrats weren't supposed to vote until Wednesday.

From TMZ "UPDATE -- Election officials just delivered seven more voting machines."

We're trying to keep an eye on all the confirmed shenanigans from all sides here:

This site is slow, but has a nice list of individual "unconfirmed" reports that can give some idea of where the problems are occuring.
