NORTH CAROLINA, (Katherine Peralta/The Charlotte Observer) - Several counties were reporting issues with voting machines Tuesday morning in North Carolina, one of the most hotly contended battleground states in the nation.

ProPublica, which is tracking problems in polling places throughout the state, said there were optical scanner issues reported in the following counties: Cleveland, Gates, Orange, Cumberland, Wake, Craven and Forsyth.

Durham is having “check-in software problems,” the nonprofit group said. Via Twitter, the North Carolina State Board of Elections instructed polling places there to use paper poll books “as a precaution.”

No issues had been reported in Mecklenburg County as of 11 a.m.
