The fact that people cannot plan ahead should not alter the hours.

Recently admitted to Augusta, Darla Moore and Bush were part owners in the Texas Rangers. Darla Moore was credited with removing current Florida Governor, Rick Scott as CEO of HCA because Darla's husband owned HCA. Scott left the 7th largest employer in the US with a golden parachute worth $500 million. Then Bain came in and cleaned up the mess after the 14 felonies and $650 million in fines. Romney bought HCA at a distress sale for $33B, now it's worth three times that much. How much money do you get for engineering that kind of deal? How does Mitt Romney get away with laundering billions of unreported income in the Caymans through a bank owned by his church? Why wasn't Rick Scott ever convicted of MedicAid and Medicare fraud? All the money grubbers of the GOP want to be heir apparent to the Bush crime family especially Romney. Romney has been in on it all this time.

@borisbadenov -"The fact that people cannot plan ahead should not alter the hours."----The fact that people cannot read the article doesn't alter the actual content. The reason for the extended hours is that people were turned away due to an evacuation because of a suspicious package that local law enforcement detonated. Like a bomb. You know. They did plan ahead,. They were there on time. The government told them to leave because of a bomb. They weren't allowed to vote. Maybe the GOP put the thing there to suppress their votes? I mean they are appealing the order because they don't think they should be allowed to vote. I bet if it were a corporation or a conservative the GOP would still want it to vote.

Never before in history has one party so blatantly and feverishly attempted to suppress the votes of the other party, and only Republicans do this undemocratic activity. It astound me and is as undemocratic as a third world's first attempt to have a democratic election. Rick Scott and the Ohio Sec of State have tried everything they can think of to limit voters in Dem precincts, from cutting hours in those areas to having far too few voting booths to accommodate voters, thereby creating lines up to 7 hours long in the hopes these folks will get discouraged and not vote. This is NO way to "win" an election and is completely unconscionable.

Why is it that when you hear about voter suppresion is it always the Republicans doing the suppresing? and doing their best by playing game to prevent folks from voting? I guess they are trying to win elections one way or another. At 7:am Tuesday I will be voting NO&NO&D

Why are the Republicans always trying to prevent people from voting? They have a history going back many decades of preventing poor people and minorities from voting. Same old dirty tricks.

More time to allow the Dems to try to steal Florida. Have you seen the latest polls. Obama is finished in FL. I don't think that even Dems are capable of pulling off enough fraud over the next couple of days to steal Florida.

"When you are loosing the game, change the rules" - Liberal Moto. I would mandate that the entire Nation return to ON! day for National elections. Period, end of story, no whining or complaining. One day, no more. PLAN FOR IT!

"More voter suppression from the Republican party....." ---------------------------------------------------------- The only constitutional right you have is to cast a vote in an election if you are legally authorized by the constitution to do so. The states decide IF and WHEN they will accept early voting. No nonsensical liberal judge has the right to make up requirements that don't exist in the constitution.
