Long lines, machine issues reported as voting gets underway

When the polls opened Tuesday, voters in some locations faced long lines and technological delays, according to a nonpartisan group monitoring election issues nationwide.

Issues with voting machines reportedly caused lines in three precincts in Virginia, as well as in Philadelphia, according to the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a nonpartisan group running the country’s biggest independent effort to field voter complaints and questions.

These problems in two key battleground states were not the only headaches reported Tuesday morning. Voters at a few locations in New York City also encountered long lines because the polling locations opened late, the group said.
