#Happening at my #polling place at 12th / Carpenter = disgraceful. The poll workers are still trying to set up voting machines, on tech support “pushing buttons”, people are dropping out of line, no one has voted here. @PhiladelphiaGov #vote #MidtermElections2018— Leslie (@Chapterless) November 6, 2018

In Wendell, NC not all ballots are being counted by the machine. It’s humid and damp in the room and the machine can’t read them all. They’re going in an “emergency bin” with assurances they’ll be counted. @WRAL @HeadCountOrg #MidtermElections2018— Kevin Flinn (@kflinn1) November 6, 2018

Election Day Eve got off to a bumpy start this morning in #WalnutCreek. A power outage for 20 minutes forced some voters to have to go to Antioch because voting machines were down at City Hall. Good news: power is back up! #EarlyVoting #GetOutAndVote #MidtermElections2018 pic.twitter.com/X17t0olWqI— Melissa Colorado (@melissacolorado) November 5, 2018
