Charlotte Observer: long lines in some parts of North Carolina

Here’s the story from the Charlotte Observer in North Carolina:

Mecklenburg County elections officials report a steady turnout of voters throughout the day. There were long lines at some precincts this morning, but voters who arrived in the mid-afternoon hours sometimes were able to vote in less than 10 minutes.

At Crown Point Elementary School in Matthews, elections officials said there were long lines for the first two hours that polls were open this morning, from 6:30 until about 8:30 a.m., and again during the lunch hour. They expect heavy voting again this evening, as people cast ballots on their way home from work.
