Parimal Patel waits in line at the North Augusta Community Center to vote Tuesday in North Augusta.

Only about 20 voters were waiting before 11 a.m. in First Church of the Nazarene polling place in Midland Valley.

However, voters at Precinct 62 on U.S. Highway 25 said it took more than two hours to vote, after they arrived at 8 a.m.

South Carolina polls were expecting somewhat more traffic than Georgia polls because the state doesn't have early or advance voting procedures.

I was at NAHS for an hour and

I was at NAHS for an hour and a half this morning. But getting to sit in the auditorium instead of standing in line was great!! I arrived at the school at 6:45 and left at 8:15. Cudos to whoever came up with the system this morning. I heard a lot of horror stories from people at other voting places. I can't complain about anything.
