What To Do If You Run Into Problems At The Polls

The U.S. Department of Justice is sending federal election monitors to 35 communities across the country, including Tarrant County, to make sure voting rights are upheld.

Lee said that voting is heavier than usual for a nonpresidential year for several reasons, including by-mail balloting, the tight congressional race between GOP Rep. Mia Love and Democratic Salt Lake County Ben McAdams and interest in ballot initiatives on medical marijuana, Medicaid expansion and gerrymandering.

Turnout was heavy throughout the day, and in some places voters faced long lines as they waited to cast their ballots.

"I was listening to radio coming here and the communications director from one of the major parties was being interviewed and he wouldn't give anyone a straight answer".

"You would have to have a pretty good conspiracy going, and collusion going by election officials (to affect the election data)", she said.
