Election Day is upon us, and many voters across the country are experiencing problems casting their ballots. Problems have arisen throughout the early voting period and are showing no signs of letting up on Tuesday. In Florida, long lines remained commonplace after Republican Gov. Rick Scott refused to extend voting hours, a decision that caused chaos and drew criticism from many, including Scott's Republican-turned-Independent predecessor, Charlie Crist.
And Florida is far from the only state to report widespread voting problems on Election Day.
