For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


WTNH in Connecticut reports:

A dozen voters waited in line at the Davis Street School in New Haven this morning ready to cast their ballot in the state primary. But the machines were locked.

“If they don’t do it in thirty seconds Mr. DeStefano may lose a vote,” voter Kelly Garner said.

Though polls open at 6:00 a.m. sharp, Davis Street didn’t open until 6:35.

“I found no voting booths open,” said Dr. Herbert Sacks. “That’s the first time in thirty years that anything like this has happened.”

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
