Voting turnout heavy in Portsmouth
PORTSMOUTH — Heavy voting and some moderate to long lines in the four biggest polling places have been the norm in Portsmouth this election day.
Registrar of Voters Madeleine Pencak said waits of from 20 to as much as 45 minutes have been reported from time to time at the larger voting locations such as Common Fence Point, the high school, middle school and St. Barnabas Church.

There have also been a few machine break downs and ballot jams — "It's a good thing we have spare machines," she said.
Portsmouth has 13,369 eligible voters
