Voting irregularities are being reported in some states, including Georgia, where the Secretary of State website was experiencing intermittent problems.

"We are experiencing difficulties with [our website]. Our IT folks are working on it. We're throwing resources at it to solve the problem," Jared Thomas, chief of staff and press secretary for the office, told CNN.

In Connecticut, delays and problems at Hartford polling locations led Gov. Dan Malloy to ask a judge to extend voting hours, CNN said. Voting machine errors were reported in Virginia. North Carolina activist James O'Keefe said he got ballots by pretending to be inactive voters.

Rapper Lil Jon, of Atlanta, said he didn’t get an absentee ballot and had to fly back to his hometown to vote, the International Business Times reported.

Rashad Robinson, executive director of the African-American organization ColorofChange.org, spoke out about Georgia’s voting irregularities in a statement: "Today is Election Day — a day when elections officials should be working overtime to ensure that voting is fair, free and easy. With so many hotly contested races on the line, it's disappointing and dismaying to see that eligible Georgia voters are waking up to find one more roadblock on their path to full democratic participation today.”

A bomb threat at Palisades Charter High School in California disrupted voting and caused the school to be evacuated, KTTV reported.

In Virginia, voters complained that touch screen voting machines were incorrectly registering votes, The Virginian-Pilot reported.

Twitter users expressed concerns about voting irregularities.
