Voters at some Virginia polls waited up to five hours to cast ballots, Florida voters received phone calls from an election official telling them the wrong day to vote, and dozens of Republican poll workers in heavily Democratic Philadelphia needed a court order to get into election locations.
Barbara R. Arnwine, executive director of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, which is part of the nonpartisan Election Protection Coalition, said many complaints involved "massive confusion" over voter identification rules in multiple states as well as problems with poorly prepared election offices.
