Election Snags Include Long Lines, Machine Issues

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Voting has wrapped up in Nevada after an election day of some long lines and minor polling place problems.

Officials with Secretary of State Ross Miller's office say problems Tuesday included three voter machine malfunctions that were eventually resolved, and long lines that kept some polls open nearly 90 minutes after the 7 p.m. deadline.

The elections office didn't release results until all counties reported polls were shut.

Miller spokeswoman Catherine Lu says nothing close to voter fraud has been found.

Other issues include a campaign sign that was allegedly too close to a polling place entrance, and an Elko voter who was upset that his registration was canceled. The elections office determined the cancellation was valid.
