20. Yes

But it isn't bad.

But there will always be complainers.

We switched to paper ballots here in Bexar County, Texas. (You know the old, "Electronic machines are hacked"..) We had a huge primary turnout and one of the tabulator machines crashed. This delayed results and resulted in protests.

We also opened more polling sites and allowed voting at any site, not just the local precinct. Unfortunately, this actually led to much longer lines on election day. Instead of voting in their precinct, everyone just went to the popular early voting sites. The libraries (where everyone early votes were jammed)

I kept telling people in line: You can vote at, this middle school, this high school, the elementary school etc..all other sites were within 2 miles and everyone could vote at any middle school, any elementary school or any high school.

Afterward, a few candidates who lost their primaries, put on a shit show, "Voters were disenfranchised" demonstration. The candidate who put on the show is indicted for all sorts of abuse of power as a constable. She is running for sheriff, and she wants criminals like her to "be free" and she reached out to a group of convicted felons to protest...the felons of course were shouting, "felons have rights..don't disenfranchise us". (You can't make this shit up: A constable is in deep shit in all sorts of abuse of power, illegal arrests, kicking people out of parks so her family can have a party, arresting people not in her jurisdiction, using county money to party etc etc etc...decides to run for sheriff and becomes the voice of disenfranchised people...Only in San Antonio)

Democracy can be messy, but we need patience.
