Voting OK In Cambridge After Morning Glitch

Updated 1:11 p.m.
Many voters spent the better part of their morning in long lines at polling places across the state. More than three million Massachusetts voters are expected to cast ballots.

Voting is back to normal in Cambridge after some people discovered their names missing from lists of eligible voters.

Brian McNiff of the secretary of state's office says the city failed to send to the printers all of their discs with pertinent voter information.

"If the problem had been at the state level, we would have been able to correct it," McNiff says. "Cambridge had to correct it at their end which they have done. The new lists are printed and they have been distributed."

Affected voters who did not cast provisional ballots are encouraged to return to the polls before they close at 8 p.m.
