Low turnout, long lines at some voting locations

Shortly before polls closed at 7 pm Thursday, some Davidson County voters were still waiting in line to cast their ballots.

Voters posted pictures of lines at Shelby Park Community Center, with some claiming wait times of over an hour.

Davidson County Election Administrator Jeff Roberts said an increase in traffic towards the end of the day is typical. Poll workers at Shelby Park Community Center reported a wait time of about 45 minutes as of 5:30 pm

Voters who are in line when polls close will still be able to cast their ballots.

The Shelby Park Community Center serves up to 3,600 registered voters, according to Roberts. It is equipped with four voting machines and two scanners. As of 5 pm, Roberts said about 10% of the county’s registered voters turned out to vote Thursday, which would mean about 360 people at Shelby Park Community Center.
