TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Waiting four hours to vote might be all right by Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s standards but it’s unacceptable to U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat who introduced legislation Wednesday targeting long lines in Florida, Virginia and Ohio. Boxer’s proposed “LINE,” or Lines Interfere With National Elections act, would set a national goal of a maximum of a one-hour wait to vote at any polling place during federal elections. In Palm Beach County, some voters waited more than seven hours at the Lantana Road Branch Library on the last day of early voting. Boxer’s bill attempts to “deal directly with the problem of dysfunction at polling places around the country,” she said in a news release. The bill would also require states to implement plans to fix the problems before the next federal election.
