I'm proud to live in a state with a great voter turnout, but disappointed to read that some voters had to wait more than two hours to vote in some locations. The Minnesota secretary of state's office must give priority to adequate staffing, organization and modernization of our polling locations before the next major election. I don't want long waits to discourage citizens from voting because the state is ill-prepared. Polling places should plan for 100 percent voter turnout.
