There's a wiki about voter suppression for reporting incidents here:

So if they really must use machines for voting, they should do something about the design flaws. Make those boxes far enough away from each other so your finger doesn't accidentally hit the wrong one.
Also, what sometimes happens with touch screens is that they are not adjusted right. You point your finger to the center of the box, but the screen recognizes it as being more to e.g. the left. So any touch screen voting machine should be tested for that every day before going in use.

There needs to be a federal commission that oversees the registration of voters and runs elections. Non-partisan. That really is the only way.

Also it should expand early voting.

Nov 2nd

Today, Barbara Anwine of the Election Protection Coalition (1-866-OUR-VOTE), a nonpartisan group, told MSNBC about voter suppression tactics they have witnessed around the country.

The group says it has received over 80,000 voter calls at the Election Protection Command Center.

Some emerging trends:

- Broward County leads Florida in voter requests for assistance.

- Registration-related problems rank #1 in nearly every battleground state - hundreds of calls focus on that problem, most often in Texas, New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Florida, Colorado, and California

- Georgia voters are reporting more incidents of voter intimidation than any other state. Other reports of voter intimidation, scams or misinformation are also emerging in Ohio and Missouri.

- Florida voters rank #1 in requests related to criminal status and voting.

- Early voting problems are also being noticed, particularly Ohio, Missouri, Georgia, Florida and California

My polling place forbids cameras of any kind.
