Although most polling locations KRIS 6 checked out on Super Tuesday were running smoothly, there were a few that had their share of issues.

Many polling locations have been designated voting locations for quite some time, but for some, it was the first year.

One of those places was Blanche Moore Elementary. Some voters weren't happy with it because they felt there was a lot of traffic and did not feel it was safe for the students.

Nueces County District Clerk Kara Sands said it's not up to the county to decide where parties go to vote.

"For instance, if their location has changed and they didn't know, remember these are the primaries so the parties run this so they chose the polling locations they chose the judges, they trained their judges, they trained the clerks," said Sands. "One thing I would like to do is make sure we train the judges and the clerks for the next primary."

No major issues with technology were reported during the afternoon.

You still have time to get out and vote, as long as you're in line by 7 p.m.
