About the law in Georgia banning even distribution of water to voter's waiting in line, the big problem is, I guess, the line itself. Something is wrong when people have to wait hours in line to vote.
Here is Washington State, we have mail in ballots. That's the best way to go, in my opinion. Even when we had polling places, I never remember having to wait more than 20 minutes at most.
Maybe there have been budget cuts in states where they still have to hire workers for polling places?
My mom used to work in a polling place and there was a law that prevented people from discussing, or having campaign material in the polling place. Maybe there is worry that political talk will seep in with the water? Talk while the water is being handed over?
I can sort of see this worry in the polling place, but how far out the door and down the street does it apply?
The big problem is, there shouldn't have to be a line out the door and down the street.
