HAMILTON COUNTY, Tenn. — UPDATE (November 8th):
On Election Day the Hamilton County Election Commission says a voting machine went down Tuesday morning at the Fairmount precinct.
The commission says poll workers followed the correct procedures to keep the voting line moving and secure the voted ballots cast during this time.
They say their other 78 polling locations thus far have had no machine outages.
Turnout has been about as the election commission expected, and they say it looks like they have plenty of ballots for eligible participating Hamilton county voters.
The commission has seen increased turnout at Lookout Mountain, Ridgeside, Walden, and Red Bank precincts.
They say their inspectors continue roaming in the field to each polling place to ensure that election officials have the tools they need to get the job done.
EARLIER (November 7th):
Redistricting ballot issues in Shelby and Davidson county raised concerns about voting here in Hamilton County.
Bu, the Hamilton County Election Commission says they've taken steps to ensure nothing like that happens here.
The election commission says the issues in Shelby and Davidson were related to Congressional districts.
All residents in Hamilton County belong to a single Congressional District, US House District 3, according to the commission.
The election commission says they have not observed any redistricting ballot issues here.
As a safety precaution, the commission had their entire voter roll checked by the State Comptroller's office earlier this year to ensure that the districts they have assigned to Hamilton County voters were correct.
The commission hopes for a smooth Election Day Tuesday.
