Long Lines in East Nashville, TN (video)

From Video the Vote:
We found very long lines at the Cleveland Community Center, which was apparently due to having only 5 machines for what is a large, predominantly African-American residential community in East Nashville, just across the river from downtown. The news was there, probably covering the same story and there were official election observers affiliated with both parties. We were told that originally, there were only 3 machines and 2 were added later. We also heard 3rd person accounts of people being turned away or sent to other precincts for various reasons which are mentioned in the film. There may not be enough information, though, to determine whether or not circumstances for this were valid.
