Millions of Americans are voting the midterm elections that will determine the balance of legislative power midway into Donald Trump’s current term. A common sight today (Nov. 6), and in the days prior (early voting has surged in states that offer it): long lines.

This can be seen as a sign of voter enthusiasm—and of problems plaguing polling sites.

There have been issues with ballot scanners in New York City, exceedingly long lines in Georgia as well technical issues in Texas and North Carolina, the AP reported.
