Tuesday's voting mishaps

Though the polls have closed, some groups are continuing their efforts to document and illuminate the problems voters encountered this election year. The political action group MoveOn.org is offering a $250,000 reward for new material evidence of organized voter suppression tactics or electronic voting fraud that leads to a felony conviction.

The group is also collecting evidence of long lines and broken machines and disproportionate impacts in African-American communities.

People for the American way is asking people to preserve deceptive "robocalls" sent to hundreds of people’s phones allegedly on behalf of National Republican Congressional Committee. The group wants a congressional hearing of these and other intimidating phone calls aimed at suppressing or misleading voters.

Common Cause is also asking voters to submit a survey of their experiences on Election Day, which the group will compile and use to inform their "agenda for election reform."
