Election officials say voting across Kansas has gone smoothly with few complaints other than long lines at polling places.
The Secretary of State's office says it's received four or five reports of electronic voting machines selecting a different candidate when voters touch the screen. But spokeswoman Kay Curtis says the vote summary sheet allows voters to correct any discrepancies before actually casting their vote. The machines were recalibrated.
A similar complaint about voting machines was made to the U.S. attorney's office.
Kaylen Seymour, who watched polling places for the Democrats in Kansas, says the party is pleased with the way the state has handled elections. Turnout was expected to be high and lines long, but she says the party received no complaints about people not being able to vote.
