Election officials say voters planning to participate in the primary elections in Alabama and Mississippi don't have to worry about long lines or crowds at the polls.

Alabama's chief elections official, Secretary of State Beth Chapman, says she's received some complaints.

They include a few people in Dallas County being unable to vote because someone had already cast absentee ballots in their names, and a complaint that someone in Bullock County was offering $10 to people willing to vote for a judicial candidate.

Statewide in Mississippi, there are congressional races on the ballot to determine party nominees for offices that will be decided in November.

The polls stay open until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
