Virginia Voter Issues: Pre-filled Ballots, Police Presence, Long Lines and Few Voter Machines

November 6, 2012   ·   Election Protection

A host of voting issues in Virginia are being reported to the 866-OURVOTE team.

In Chesapeake, there are long lines and few voting machines at Cuffee Center, Crestwood, and Camelot polling places. 

In Hampton, the lines are long, and voters reported a police presence at a polling site, with police at one point entering the site.

In Tidewater, voters reported that voting machines were registering incorrect votes, with votes for Obama switching to Romney.

And a caller reported that Liberty University in Lynchburg is handling out ballots at the Heritage Methodist Church polling site that are pre-filled with a vote for Romney.
