RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Some voters in Virginia Beach and Newport News have experienced problems with their electronic machines.

Elections spokeswoman Rose Mansfield says there have been problems with 32 touchscreen voting machines that were preventing voters from casting accurate ballots.

The elections department issued a statement saying the broken machines were taken out of service immediately and there were enough working machines to prevent any voting delays.

Virginia voters are deciding races for U.S. Senate and the state’s 11 congressional seats.
