A reality-based country would have fixed this... but I guess that bit of chaos lets god work his will easier.

#1 is something that could happen anywhere, it is inherantly unfixable.

I have to admit that #2 is sheer lunacy. If you show up in the wrong polling place you either find the right one or don't vote. There should be a map posted of the nearby polling places so the election judges can be busy supervising the election rather than helping lost folks.

#3 is a totally new situation, unfortunatly we can't have a court ruling until after the fact. It's a one time situation that can't be fixed ahead of time.

#4 Yeah, the electoral college system is hosed. The implementation is not fault tolerant. The simple fix that may have a chance of passing would be to mandate that electors *must* vote according to the wishes of the plurality of their state. Abolishing the electoral college has no reasonable chance any time soon.

#5 Some states do have a procedure to handle delaying the elections and some don't. Given time more states will get on board. This is in the process of being fixed.



Anyway, there's always this option.
