Smart conversation from the National Constitution Center

Tell us your Election Day 2012 voting story

November 6, 2012 by NCC Staff


On Tuesday, there were various reports in the area near the National Constitution Center about voter experiences at the polls. Some were good, some were bad, and some were just odd.

For example, one of our co-workers and friends had to wait 30 minutes for a polling place in Philadelphia to open, which was manned by only one person. The machines didn’t work.

In other cases, people we spoke with moved quickly and easily through the polls, which all had extensive lines.

And in an odd case, BuzzFeed reports that one polling machine was placed next to a gigantic mural of Barack Obama. A judge’s order stopped that process.

We’d like to hear your story for an article we’ll run on Wednesday after Election Day 2012 is over.
