Long lines reported across D.C. region as area voters decide, Clinton or Trump

  |   World News

Long lines greeted many voters as polls opened across the Washington region Tuesday, a sign of the intense interest generated by a deeply divisive presidential campaign. While Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is virtually assured victory in Maryland and the District, she and Republican rival Donald Trump have been battling in Virginia. Voting proceeded smoothly in most places, though there were some hiccups: At midday, the wait time at one Prince George’s County polling station was nearly two hours because of a serious backup and only one ballot scanner for a precinct of 2,600 registered voters. Latino turnout appeared to be strong in key parts of Northern Virginia, with some immigrants saying they had become citizens so they could cast a vote for Clinton. But other voters said they were so unmoved by both candidates that they had barely persuaded themselves to go to the ballot box.
