In Columbia County, Noah Williams prepares to cast his ballot at Grovetown Middle School on Nov. 8, 2011. Harlem is also holding municipal elections today.

Board of Elections Director Lynn Bailey said so far calls to the Board of Elections office this morning are few compared to other election days.

There does not seem to be any delays at the polls.

“If there were going to be any crowds it would be in Hephzibah,” Bailey said of the city that has a couple thousand eligible voters.

Blythe, on the other hand, has around 300.

The polls will close today at 7 p.m.
