Fears of voting chaos on election day

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2008-11-04

With a reported 8.5 million new voters, and others turning out in mass numbers, voters and officials in the USA fear chaos or even fraud.

 

 

According to the latest numbers there are over 8.5 million new voters, many of whom are black or young. But these large numbers lead some people to worry: will all voters be able to vote? Several groups have already complained. The state of Virginia is being sued because there is only one voting machine for 750 voters, half as many as in the other states. In Colorado, 6,000 new voters were barred from voting because they had "forgotten" to check a box on the form. And, in at least one polling place in Pennsylvania, apparently no one had told the first voters to show up that they needed to bring a form of identification in order to vote.
