Around the country, people have been standing in lines for hours to cast a vote in today's midterm election.
The big picture: A slew of technical difficulties, bad weather and lack of resources have forced voters to decide between sitting and waiting, leaving and possibly coming back later, or not voting at all. Tom Regan of Atlanta's WSB-TV tweeted that at a polling place in southwest Atlanta, "[h]undreds of voters" were waiting in line "for hours" because there were only three voting machines available.
