Pelosi urges California voters ‘to stay in line’ amid reports of long wait times

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) urged California voters to remain in line amid reports of long lines at the polls for the Golden State’s Super Tuesday primary.

“Stay in line, friends. Your vote is imperative,” Pelosi tweeted Tuesday evening ahead of the polls closing in California.

Pelosi sent the tweet amid reports of hours-long wait times at UCLA’s single campus voting center, with Sophia Armen, a campus organizer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) campaign, saying she had seen students walk away from the line.

Rafael Návar, Sanders’s state director in California, said earlier in the afternoon that only nine of the voting center’s 39 machines were functioning.

The Hill has reached out to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office for comment.
