Election Day Long Lines: Resource Allocation - Christopher Famighetti, Amanda Melillo, and Myrna Pérez, The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, September 2014: In analyzing precinct-level data in Florida, Maryland, and South Carolina from the 2012 general election, researchers for the Brennan Center for Justice found long lines at polling places were in part due to a lack of enough poll workers and not enough voting machines. They also found precincts with more minorities had longer wait times.
