Few problems reported during voting

Few problems have been reported at the 48 precincts across Columbus during today's presidential preference primary.

In a day that will likely exceed turnout expectations of election officials, the only problems reported so far include people trying to vote at precincts that have been relocated, said Nancy Boren, executive director of the Muscogee County Office of Elections and Registrations.

Voters at both Mack Recreation Center and St. Stephens Church tried to cast ballots this morning, Boren said. Those precincts are now located at the Columbus Public Library and the Cornerstone Church of God, respectively.

Boren initially estimated a 25-percent turnout. She's since changed that to 30-40 percent.
