“If you can’t vote, that’s a problem for democracy.”

Paloma Wu, a Mississippi Center for Justice attorney who filed one of the two lawsuits to keep polling places open later than usual in Hinds County after some polling places ran out of ballots and voters had to wait for them to be restocked during Tuesday’s election. One precinct in Clinton had 100 people in line but only 14 ballots left at 6:45 p.m., while another ran out of ballots three times throughout the day but only received 100 more each time. At one precinct in Byram, there were no ballots for two hours, and at another, voters were told to leave because the precinct would not receive more ballots and the poll workers would not allow voting by affidavit ballot.
