"Thank you," said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. "Thank you for voting early. That's been huge. Thank you for voting your absentee ballot. That's been huge as well."
Sec. Raffensperger said the state worked with a vendor to increase the bandwidth on poll pads after it was discovered slowdowns at voter check-in had led to long lines at some polling places.
Early voting runs through October 30.
