Voter Action Requests Extended Polling Place Hours and Paper Ballots in Pennsylvania PDF  | Print |  Email
By Warren Stewart, Verified Voting Foundation   
April 22, 2008
The Philadelphoa Inquirer is reporting that Voter Action, a national voter rights group, has asked a Philadelphia judge to extend voting hours tonight until 10 p.m., and to use paper ballots at all voting places where broken machines have been reported. The city's Board of Elections seems certain to object. The hearing is expected to begin momentarily.
According to the article:

John Bonifaz, Voter Action's legal director, says his organization has received about 150 complaints from Philadelphians today, a rate he says is roughly double what they've seen in primarires elsewhere. Interestingly, the leading local election watchdog, the Committee of 70, has said problems at the polls today have been relatively routine. We'll have more shortly.
In a laterer post Jennifer Lin reported:
Voter Action, which has just asked a Philadelphia judge to extend poll hours until 10 p.m., is making its case with voter affidavits. One Richard Brown, of the 5700 block of N. 12th Street in Philadelphia, swore an affidavit that both voting machines at his polling place were broken when he arrived there at 6:55 a.m. It took nearly two hours for the machines to be either repaired or replaced, according to Brown's affidavit, and more than an hour for election officials to produce paper provisional ballots. Roughly 75-100 would-be voters left before that, according to Brown's affidavit.
There have been hundreds of complaints of malchine malfunctions causing long lines from voters across the state in today's primary.
