Heavy voter turnout; some minor problems reported

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Voter turnout is heavy throughout most of South Carolina, with some people encountering minor problems because they may not have updated their voter registration information.

South Carolina Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire says all reports indicate that there are no major problems and voting is proceeding smoothly across the state.

Whitmire says the long lines some voters encountered in the early morning have since dissipated and turnout appears heavy.

Whitmire says one issue that has popped up here and there is that some voters haven’t updated their addresses if they have moved.

He says this is an indicator that people who might not have voted regularly are turning out today.
