My Favorite Super Tuesday Story

In Virginia, the Board of Elections got over 700 complaint calls from people demanding to know why their polling places were closed. Must be some sort of election conspiracy, right? No. It's just that Virginia's primary wasn't part of Super Tuesday -- they get to vote next week.

Honorable mention: voters in Chicago complained to poll workers that the pens they were given for the optical scanning ballots were out of ink. They were told not to worry, that it was invisibile ink, and the scanner would still count it. Yeah, not so much.
