NAACP asks for federal takeover of Va. election

The Virginia NAACP has filed suit in U.S. District Court in Richmond demanding that the federal government be put in charge of the Nov. 4 election in Virginia.

The complaint, naming Gov. Kaine as a defendant, alleges that the state failed to prepare for an unprecedented turnout of voters in the presidential election.  The Associated Press reports that the complaint asks that the court reallocate voting machines to precincts most likely to have long waiting lines and to keep polls open for an additional two hours.
