Voting Goes Smoothly In Charlotte So Far

Election officials say there have been few problems – none major – with voting in the Charlotte area Tuesday. For the most part, people have obeyed laws preventing campaigning too close to polling places, voting machines have functioned properly, and voters have faced short lines. Many election officials say the short waits are in part because of the state's record turnout of early voters. Some precinct chairs say almost half of their precincts' registered voters cast their ballots before Tuesday morning.
