There were a few glitches and issues that surfaced in east Mississippi on election day.
Perhaps the most interesting report was a missing voting machine in Kemper County.
Officials confirmed that one of the electronic voting machines was apparently stolen from the courthouse. It was discovered missing Monday. Election officials said they don't have any clues as to what happened to it.
In Lauderdale County, there were long lines at many of the polls as they opened. Record turnout is also expected.
"We've had glitches but we just had the regular glitches with the machines," said election commissioner Ann Hall. "But our poll workers are really good and I think they do a great job."
The biggest complaint Newscenter 11 received was there weren't enough voting machines.
City of Meridian officials said voters who received parking tickets shortly after polls opened Tuesday morning at the Velma Young precinct will not have to pay the fines.
Meridian Police Chief Benny Dubose said Fox News, The Washington Post, and the Jackson Free Press erroneously reported that Meridian officers pulled voters out of lines at precincts to arrest them on old warrants and old fines. Dubose says those reports are not true, and are probably somehow related to an officer issuing parking tickets.
