Description
 
Millions turn out to vote in U.S. general elections, and there were reports of long wait times at some polling places on Election Day in 2012. Reports of long wait times at the polls also occurred in prior elections, including the 2008 and 2004 general elections. Long voter wait times have raised concerns because they may discourage some people from voting or impose hardships on some voters, such as those who cannot afford to miss work or those with disabilities who are physically unable to wait for long periods of time. The authority to regulate elections is shared by federal, state, and local officials; however, responsibility for conducting federal elections primarily resides with about 10,500 local election jurisdictions. This report addresses (1) the extent to which local election jurisdictions collected data to measure voter wait times and had long wait times on Election Day 2012; and (2) the factors that affected wait times and their impacts across jurisdictions. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
