Forsyth County, NC -- North Carolina voters went to the polls in large numbers to vote for Amendment One on Tuesday but the primary elections were not without issues.
Over the course of the day, voters called and emailed the News 2 Information Center about problems they experienced at the polls.
Some voters tell us there were party and ballot mixups at some voting locations.
In Forsyth County, for example, our news crews visited the Sedge Garden Recreational Center where a voter told us she asked for a Republican Ballot but was forced to vote unaffiliated.
"They told me to go to the computer because I wasn't registered as a Republican, I was registered as Unaffiliated. So, I said, 'well, can I have a ballot?' and they said no you need to go to the computer.'"
In primary elections, Unaffiliated voters can choose which ballots they desire. However, Sher says at the electronic voting machine, she was automatically prompted for the Unaffiliated ballot which had only two options to cast a vote: Amendment One and a county judge election.
Sher says when she asked why she couldn't select her desired ballot, she was told to just vote.
"And I'm thinking to myself, this is wrong, even the guy in front of me said the exact same thing: there's only two choices listed. There's a problem. It was mad-house, crazy, chaotic.," Sher said. "When it's chaotic and noone knows what they are doing, I said, I was better off just submitting a vote for something."
Sher said she cast her ballot and came back two hours later with her husband Skip.
"My biggest concern is, this is just a primary. What happens in November if we have the same problems and people's votes aren't counted," Skip said.
Republican Party Chairman Scott Cumbi told News 2, his office heard reports of other voting issues, with at least two voters having a similar issue at the Griffith Fire Department polling site.
Cumbi says, it appears the poll workers may have just been confused.
He also told us, four polling sites in the county were reportedly short on ballots earlier in the day; those include Calvary Baptist Church on Country Club Road, the Clemmons Civic Center polling site, Providence Moravian Church and Sedge Garden Recreational Center.
The county board of elections director acknowledges there were some problems throughout the day at various locations.
Director Rob Coffman explained his office understands voters' frustrations because there is no such thing as a perfect election.
It does not appear that anyone left polling sites without being able to cast a ballot but the problems made for a less than pleasant experience for some voters.
