Large Voter Turn Out, But Lines Move Quickly

Posted:

Precincts are packed in Mid-Michigan, but lines moved quickly to get voters in and out of the polls.

Both workers and voters are helping to make sure this election day is a smooth one. Lines have been pretty long all day, but voters say they haven't had to wait longer than 45 minutes.

Voters who researched the candidates before coming to vote said their process was quick once given a ballot. Election workers also tried to speed up the lines by handing out sample ballots to those waiting in line.

 

There were some reports of problems in the area, including ballot counting machines breaking down. In Jackson, 6 News was told that the turnout was so large, the polling place ran out of ballots and voters were told to return after 5p.m.
