Election officials in at least two states are trying to deal with early voting glitches.

In one Tennessee county, some voters were given ballots for the wrong state House district. The Sullivan County Administrator tells the Kingsport Times-News that a few voters caught the mistake and were given correct ballots, but a couple of others called later after realizing they had cast the wrong ones.

Meanwhile, in Georgia, officials tell the Gwinnet Daily post that the ovals where voters are supposed to mark their choices are too thick for optical scanning machines to read. The county has reprinted 19,000 ballots to fix the problem. They say at least 10,000 absentee ballots already turned in will have to be
hand-counted.
