Why Are Celebrities Tweeting #StayInLine? It's Because Of Major Complications In The Voting Process
As if this Election Day wasn't already history-making for obvious reasons, some unforeseeable wrenches were thrown into the voting process on Tuesday, truly making it one for the books. Physical problems have risen at the polls, specifically in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and other battleground states that will determine whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton takes the presidency. Understandably, these issues have left voters angry, frustrated, and in a tizzy. There have been hundreds of voter complaints over difficulties like lines lasting an hour or so, random equipment failures, and lack of clarity on where they can vote. It's coming down to the last minute, and celebrities are tweeting #StayInLine, urging voters to stick it out despite the issues.
Apparently, the problems that have complicated the polls have been happening for some time (regardless of Trump's "rigged" claims), but perhaps not to this degree. The president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights described the events as a "tremendous disruption." You know, because America needed one more reason to be totally stressed out on Tuesday. Luckily, the celebs are continuing to be vocal, and hopefully fans will listen and wait it out.
