While I didn’t have to wait long to vote in West (St. Louis) County, there are reports of massive problems in North County, where some people had to wait 6 to 8 hours to cast their vote. Many of those precincts are majority-black and/or lower-income, and have had these problems in earlier election years. Someone is going to have to do something to redistribute the polling place wealth — there’s no reason those precincts should have a shortage of voting booths while we have such a surplus.

Update at 8:57pm: How massive is the backup at some of these places? KMOV 4’s Julian Grace just interviewed a woman who got in line in Velda City at 5:30am, but didn’t get to vote until five minutes ago, some 15 hours later.
