There's a new push to allow people in Virginia to vote early. A Fairfax County State Senator introduced the legislation.
During last week's election some lines in Fairfax County were up to four hours long. And at some precincts in Roanoke County, people waited up to three hours to vote.
Local elections officials say the theory of early voting is good, but the practice can be challenging if they don't get the proper funding.
"We'd have to have extra staff, extra computers, extra voting machines, and that costs a lot of money, said Judy Stokes, " It's not that easy. It sounds good but it's not that easy to accomplish."
Election officials say early voting in Virginia comes up after each Presidential election, but never passes because of funding issues. Virginia is one of about 15 states with no in-person early voting option.
