Durham County, the most liberal area of North Carolina reported having increased wait times at the polls on Tuesday after polling place computers began experiencing “tech problems.”

Not long after the polls opened on Tuesday morning, Durham County’s Twitter page tweeted the following:

‘We’re got some tech issues @ our polling places that we’re fixing right now. Please be patient with us as we iron out some kinks.’

Although the computers are only used to check in voters, the technical problems were still expected to cause delays. Votes are being cast on paper ballots as per the county’s regular practice.

As of October, the county had 127,901 registered Democrats, 70,664 unaffiliated voters, and 29,573 registered Republican voters, according to reports from the county.

Residents of Durham County need not fear, officials have assured everyone they will still be able to vote:

‘May slightly increase wait times, but everyone will still get to #vote!’

The county has been tweeting updates to their Twitter page to help keep voters aware of what’s going on:

‘#Voters! We’re switching to poll books due to tech issue we’re trying to fix. All will still get to #vote. Wait times may be a little longer.’

‘As precaution, @NCSBE directed Durham Co. to use paper poll books today after tech problems at a few sites. Voting not interrupted. #ncpol’

‘Voters have been steadily casting their ballots at the East Regional Library polling location following long lines this morning. #vote’

Apparently, some polling stations no longer have lines, despite the technical issues:

‘NOTE: This is only for *checking in* – this is how things used to be done in past elections, NBD. And several sites still have no lines!’

‘We’re at one of our busiest polling locations. Despite the slower check-in process, things are moving pretty smoothly. #Vote2016’

If you’re from Durham County, follow their official Twitter page @DurhamCounty for updates throughout the day. If you’re in line at the time the polling station closes, Durham County will still allow you to cast your ballot.

Get out and vote!
