Election Protection is reporting getting calls from South Florida about broken optical scan machines in some two dozen polling places, reports of voters being turned away from the polls for incomplete registrations, and long lines. In one case, absentee ballots were not received at a rehab center for elderly residents.

The Associated Press is similarly reporting that Florida voters experienced long lines but only a few minor glitches with equipment during the early morning. Jammed optical scan machines and malfunctioning electronic signature pads were the most common complaints in the first few hours of voting. Long lines were a given in some locations, with wait times of up to two hours at precincts in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, the state's most populous, reports the AP.
