Early Voting Snafus Reported 

After Friday, July 14, the first day of Early Voting for the August 3rd general election/state-and-federal primary, all was not well here in River City. Various complaints were vented about the venues, about the new machines, about the process, or about all of the above. One candidate's report on the problems begins this way: "Yesterday morning at Miss Blvd (where I was), there were 2 machines down and a line out the door.
