California Voting
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (8)

California has thousands of polling precincts, each serving maybe 200 people or so. Lines at the end of the day are long, but nothing to compare when looking at Ohio or Florida or other states.

How do we do it? We have polls set up everywhere (and I mean everywhere):

-wedding chapel
-garage of lifeguard headquarters
-private home
-school auditorium
-Krishna temple
-union office
-police museum
-Cetacean Society building
-fire station
-party supply store
-Echo Park indoor pool

My point is that California facilitates the voting process, bringing it as close to the place where people live as possible, making the precincts small enough to be manageable. It's not that hard to do.

And, starting this year, if you have a signature on file with the Department of Motor Vehicles, you could register to vote online.

In 50 years of voting, I have never had to wait more than 30 minutes to vote, even when arriving at the most crowded time (right after work).

So why can't other states follow suit?
