Local Election Results
Voters went to the polls on Tuesday to cast their ballots for a variety of national, state and local offices. Voters ran into long lines and balky ballot scanners as they tried to cast votes in Lee County precincts. At 7pm, both Island precincts still had long lines as poll workers assured voters that if they were in line at 7 when polls closed, they would be given the opportunity to vote. At 10pm, 35 Lee precincts still had lines, over 3 hours after polls closed according to NBC-2 News.
