From Chicagoland, TPM Reader MS reports:

I live in Arlington Heights, IL, outside of Chicago. I’m in Mark Kirk’s House District. This morning none of the electronic voting machines were working. Therefore the wait to vote was around 30 minutes, since they were using paper ballots.

As an aside, on the table next to the election judges was a box of donuts from the Republican Party of Wheeling Township, thanking the election judges for their service. Democray (and bribery) in action!

If we’re down to donuts, then Chicago ain’t what it used to be.
