When we whine about long voting lines, we do a disservice to those who fought in places like Belleau Wood and Bastogne to secure America's freedom. We do a disservice to those men and women in uniform today who are helping to ensure our liberty.
That doesn't mean improvements can't be made. Legislators should listen to county election board officials who say precinct volume wasn't considered when lawmakers redrew congressional districts — resulting in huge lines at some precincts, no lines at others. They also should consider bumping pay for poll workers, if possible.
Meantime, don't lose sight of what the griping is about — waiting longer than we'd like, on one day every few years, in order to vote. Relax, people.
