FLORIDA: Update On The Ground From Florida Immigrant Coalition

Maria Rodriguez from the Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) provides us with an update on the ground in Miami, Florida:

So after intense get out the vote efforts for the last two weeks, today on Election Day, we anxiously wait as there is an early afternoon lull in the polls. Last night at the voter protection training we had someone that waited 7 hours to vote, in the rain! This morning waits were in the 3 hour range, but now we wonder if there’s anyone left to vote! We know it will pick up after work and are gearing up for the last push...
