Some Indiana voters waiting as long as two hours to cast ballots

Posted: Updated:

FISHERS, Ind. (AP) -- Voters in the Indianapolis metropolitan area are reporting long lines and long waits at some polling places amid heavy voter turnout.

In Republican-dominated Hamilton County just north of Indianapolis, residents had to wait two hours to vote at some of the county's 150 polling stations.

County Election Administrator Kathy Richardson says a programming glitch that affected voting machines in about half of the county's polling sites delayed Tuesday's start of voting by about 20 minutes. But she attributed the long lines that formed later to the big voter turnout.

Richardson says the county's Election Day didn't get off to a good start with the technical problems, but she says the large number of people who have turned out to vote caused the long waits to cast votes.
