A voting booth has a capacity, just like an elevator. Officials know roughly how many people one machine can accomodate in one day. They then estimate voter turnout based on previous elections, interest in current election, etc. and order voting machines. Inner city precincts had less machines than they should have. Voting machines that could have been used sat unused in storage.
It had absolutely nothing to do with how fast or how slow people were voting.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
