U.S. panel recommends early voting to cut election day wait times

To reduce long election day voting lines, a presidential panel recommended on Wednesday that states explore the possibility of expanding ways that Americans can vote early, an increasingly popular way to vote. Complaints about long lines in some precincts across the country in the 2012 presidential election prompted President Barack Obama to form a bipartisan commission to look at ways to improve the voting experience. The Presidential Commission on Election Administration, led by Obama’s 2012 campaign lawyer, Bob Bauer, and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s top attorney, Ben Ginsburg, returned with its recommendations. The panel’s key recommendation: States that have not already done so should expand alternative ways of voting, such as mail balloting and in-person early voting.
