Sen. Barbara Boxer plans to introduce an election reform bill designed to prevent long lines at polling places on Wednesday, her office told TPM. The LINE Act, short for the Lines Interfere with National Elections Act, would require the attorney general to set national standards for a minimum number of voting machines, poll workers and other resources during federal elections by Jan. 1, 2014. The goal would to be prevent voters from having to wait more than an hour to vote at any polling place in the country.

“It is unacceptable that many Americans had to wait in line for five, six or seven hours to cast their ballots,” Boxer said in a statement. “The LINE Act will help ensure that every American has an equal chance to vote without enduring hours-long delays at their polling places.”

Register. Vote. make sure everyone you know does. Help older folks to make sure they are still registered and haven’t been purged. If they win, it’ll be due to voter suppression - do your part! 

If you or someone you know needs ID for their vote in Pennsylvania, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE (687-8683)

This number can also get PA residents a ride to the polls as needed.

Can I Vote is a simple way to check your registration status. It literally takes like 5 seconds and it’s SO IMPORTANT!

This site: http://www.longdistancevoter.org/verify_voter_registration#.UDec_J2PWSo is also useful for finding out where to go to check!
