Problems and Complaints About Voting
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Most people encountered no problems other than a long line on voting day, and even if they ran into that, most of the time, the wait wasn’t too long or voters decided that it was just part of the process.
But at John Knox Village in Lee’s Summit, the wait to vote was more than some could take. There were four voting machines set up at the retirement home, but some suspect the process took longer because the residents are slower with the electronic voting system.
Some older voters at John Knox Village waited up to two hours to cast their vote.
There were other concerns about the voting process. One man FOX 4 talked to believed a voting worker was persuading people how to vote rather than helping them with the ballot.
And a soldier was frustrated because he never received a requested absentee ballot from Florida, even though he had a voter I.D. card from there. He was disappointed that he was left out of the voting process.
