201,000 Floridians Didn't Vote Because of Long Lines
The analysis comes from the Orlando Sentinel with help from Ohio State University professor Theodore Allen. They looked at voters in Florida's 25 biggest counties.
Here's some more findings from the analysis:
- 2,000,000 voters live in a precinct that was still open 90 minutes after the official closing time.
- 561,000 live in a precinct that was open more than three hours afterwards.
- Though, in Miami-Dade half of the precincts did end up closing about an hour after the cut-off time.
- Duval and Pinellas Counties had all their precincts closed by 8:30.
- Lee County actually had the worst problem with long lines in the state. 27 percent of their voters were in precincts that were open until at least 10 p.m. (Interestingly, its a heavily Republican leaning county).
