With 1000s Still Waiting in Line to Vote, the AP Called Arizona for Clinton

NATIONAL (VFB) — Last night, the Associated Press declared Hillary Clinton the winner of Arizona’s primary election at 8:19pm local time, just over an hour after the polls had closed.

Three minutes later, Clinton congratulated herself on the win.

The problem is, there were still thousands of voters waiting in line for the chance to cast their ballots.  Several hours later, they were still waiting.

Some people had to have dinner delivered to avoid losing their place in line.

Knowing the value of each individual vote, Bernie Sanders urged his supporters to stand their ground.

Just after midnight, over five hours after the race was called for Clinton, the final reported vote was cast.

More than likely, some voters were disenfranchised by the premature prediction.

The fact that in 2016 American voters have to wait long hours to exercise their fundamental right to vote is beyond unacceptable and must be dealt with immediately.

One Arizona man tells the story of his 5-hour wait to vote.

Instead of installing countless failed democracies around the globe, perhaps we Americans should focus on resuscitating our crumbling democracy here at home.
