Tuesday 4:33 p.m. (AP) – Americans voted without major problems Tuesday in midterm elections receiving intense scrutiny after two years of false claims and conspiracy theories about how ballots are cast and counted.

With polls open across the country, no widespread problems with ballots, long lines or voter intimidation were reported, though there were hiccups in some places, which is typical on any Election Day.

One hitch garnered outsized attention: Vote tabulators malfunctioned in 20% of polling places in Arizona’s most populous county that includes Phoenix. While election officials assured the public that every vote in Maricopa County would be counted, the issue prompted an outcry from Republicans in a state where elections for governor and U.S. Senate are expected to be close and where skepticism of election systems has run deep within the GOP since 2020.

Elsewhere, some voting sites in North Carolina were delayed in opening because workers showed up late, and officials extended voting hours there. And in one Pennsylvania county, polling places scrambled to replenish low supplies of paper ballots.

Election experts said the type and number of disruptions encountered by voters were not unusual.

But trouble with the vote-tabulation machines in Maricopa County sparked an outpouring of criticism on social media, and prompted Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake to say after casting her ballot: “I’m embarrassed for Arizona.”

A spokesperson for the state’s elections department said the problem was minor.

Tuesday 3:37 p.m. Here’s video of Gov. Mike DeWine and Sen. Tim Ryan casting their ballots.

Tuesday 11:45 a.m. Former President Trump was spotted casting his vote in Florida. He stopped briefly to speak with reporters.

Tuesday 11:30 a.m. The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections provided an update from the polls. Officials say their polls are fully staffed, they’ve seen a continuous flow of voters, with the largest crowd expected after 4 p.m. Official results are not expected until after midnight.

Officials also explained why the Department of Justice is monitoring some polling locations in Cuyahoga County. (The video below explains why.)

Tuesday 10 a.m. Mike DeWine was seen voting near his hometown in Cedarville, Ohio. DeWine is running for reelection as Ohio Governor against Nan Whaley.

Tuesday 9 a.m. Tim Ryan and his wife were seen voting on Tuesday morning near their hometown in Howland, Ohio. They both stopped to answer some questions from local media. Watch in the video below.
