Super Tuesday voters find few machine hiccups and delays

A few mechanical hiccups at the polls are being reported as people cast their ballots in America's biggest-ever Super Tuesday. But for the most part, early voting seems to be moving along smoothly as an unprecedented 24 states hold primaries and caucuses.

Eight Chicago precincts report some small problems. And people in Georgia are now required to present photo ID, creating long lines and slowing things down in the state.

Voting advocates are worried ballot counting could drag on for days because of the expected high turnout and record numbers of mail-in ballots.

Weather is a concern in some cold-weather states. Snow or rain fell in Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas and Massachusetts, and elections officials worried that might discourage some voters.
