Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who had to wait in line for about 90 minutes today, said that these wait times are a form of voter suppression:

Rep. @AOC: "There is no place in the United States of America where two, three, four hour waits to vote is acceptable — and just because it's happening in a blue state doesn't mean that it's not voter suppression." pic.twitter.com/OvXtxNQPWS

Remind us again who is in charge of elections in the Bronx and why would they suppress the vote?
It’s the second day of early voting here in NYC and lines are hours long. @AOC is here to vote in Parkchester in the Bronx talking about voter suppression and the honor of voting. #earlyvoting #voting #aoc #vote #Election2020 #VoteEarlyDay @News12BK @News12BX pic.twitter.com/36yUbtRv2v

She’ll find a way to blame this on President Trump, no doubt:
Those damned Republicans that run New York!

Also, waiting in line is not voter suppression:
If lines are voter suppression, then talking publicly about the lines is definitely voter suppression.

“What a joke”:
Any voter waiting longer than 5 minutes to vote is voter suppression… even in New York City. What a joke. https://t.co/94PjY7kVib

And, note, this is happening during early voting:
They’re being allowed to vote A WEEK EARLY. By definition that is not voter “suppression”.
