Our Area Sees Long Lines, Some Early Problems

Posted: Updated:

Election Day is seeing long lines and some ballot problems across Southwest Virginia.

Erin Barnett reports that the Covington Registrar's Office had to switch to paper ballots after having problems with the electronic ballots this morning. Voters told us that when they voted for one presidential candidate on the electronic ballot, the candidate's name came up with the incorrect party.

In Roanoke, Katie Love found voters waiting in an hour-long line at Roanoke Academy. Scott Leamon is checking into reports of two-hour long wait to vote at the former Ruffner Middle School.
