MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Poll watchers in Memphis and Nashville were reporting many voting problems on Tuesday, but few had to do with the state's new voter photo ID law.
Instead, volunteers in Nashville said the problems were too few voting machines, too few workers, no change of address forms, no provisional ballots and people being sent away without being told they could vote provisionally.
In Memphis, many people were reporting problems voting because their polling places had changed due to redistricting.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The polls are open across Tennessee. Voters are casting ballots in the presidential race, for one U.S. Senate seat, nine U.S. House contests, the entire state House and half of the state Senate.
More than 1.4 million Tennessee voters cast ballots during the early voting period.
A state or federally issued photo ID is required to vote. This is the first year for the requirement, which also applied in the March presidential primary and the August state primary.
