The most liberal county in North Carolina reported on Tuesday that wait times for voting had increased because polling place computers were experiencing "tech problems."


"We've got some tech issues @ our polling places that we're fixing now. Please be patient with us as we iron out some kinks," a message on Durham County's Twitter account said soon after polls opened on election day.

While the computers are only used to check in voters, the county said that the glitch was expected to cause delays. Votes were being cast on paper ballots, which is the county's normal practice.

"May slightly increase wait times, but everyone will still get to #vote!" one tweet noted.

As of October, Durham County reported that it had 127,901 registered Democrats, 70,664 unaffiliated voters and 29,573 registered Republicans.
