The Founding Fathers would be aghast.

Voting is supposed to be easy. But on Tuesday in Hamilton County, a new electronic voting system didn't have the bugs worked out before it went in to use at the polling places. That made for some long waits, frustrated voters, extended voting hours and provisional ballots.
