One thing I hate about election days is that reading around the internets you get lots of reports of voting problems, often with lots of exclamation points, by people who don't seem to be able distinguish between serious voter intimidation, general incompetence, and the to be expected occasional malfunctioning machine or whatever. Obviously our election system is completely stupid and in an ideal world we'd have only a small fraction of all of these problems, but not all of these problems are evidence of massive conspiracy.

...adding, voting issues are serious, but the inability to distinguish between the important and the not so important obscures what the real problems are.
