Tea-leaves from The Murfreesboro Post in Tennessee...

But this election is different. The six early voting sites across the county have experienced lines with 3,292 early ballots cast Wednesday and another 1,126 cast today by noon.

Some voters have complained of long lines in Smyrna and La Verge. Bill Butler a blogger out of Nashville (bill.butler.net) wrote he waited two hours to vote on the first day of voting.

"I would much rather our poll workers be accurate than speed up the line because some people are waiting," [Elections administrator Hooper] Penuel said.

Butler said the hold up was caused by slow computers to validate the voter's registration and that it only took a few minutes to actually vote.

"Most depressing was watching only two of the five voting machines in use because of the slow registration validation process," Bulter wrote.

This is 3,292 voters voting in one day in six early voting sites and lines up to two hours long. What are they going to do on Election Day?

There is something very wrong here.
