It’s Not a Philadelphia Election Unless It’s a Problematic Election

The birthplace of American democracy stumbles again.

While it’s true that almost nobody is voting today, it is also true—this being Philly—KYW Radio reports that the folks who are civic-minded enough to do their duty are running into problems.

The station says:

In Somerton, where DA candidate Daniel Alvarez popped in to vote, there were voting machine problems, forcing voters to wait for about 45 minutes before casting their ballot. Even Alvarez had to wait to vote, but he was eventually able to around 8 a.m., when the machines were fixed.

 Maybe someday we’ll do an election right in this town.
