State Says Few Voting Problems Reported Across North Carolina

North Carolina officials say today's primary turnout has been steady, but not especially heavy.

The state's election chief says few problems have been reported. He counts about a dozen instances of voting machine problems. That's a sharp drop compared to the 120 reports two years ago.

Election officials have been predicting a modern-day record for primary turnout in North Carolina. More than half of registered Democrats are expected to vote. GOP turnout is expected to be lower, under 30 percent.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has one top supporter -- former President Bill Clinton -- making several stops in North Carolina to help get out the vote.

Barack Obama, meanwhile, is holding his election night party at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
