I am trying to create a program where I open a file full of lists and process them.
However when the program does not recognize the lists as lists.
Here is the relevant code :-
def open_filedef():
    text_file =open ("voteinp.txt","r")
    lines = text_file.readlines()
    for line in lines:
        print line
        print line[0]

And an example of the type of text :-


Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
