Voters got out to cast a ballot early this morning, but some encountered problems at polling places.

"If you start filling out one side, and don't look at the top left and don't read it properly your ballot will be spoiled, so I have to vote again," said voter Bob Vieira.
At Kawananakoa Middle School dozens of people asked for a new ballot because they hadn't filled it out correctly. The precinct chief said he reissued ballot after ballot, more than 20 in just the first two hours after opening the doors at 7 a.m. The problem: people marked two names in the same category or didn't stick to voting with one political party.
"We instruct them as they come in on how they should mark the ballot, but they are not listening," said Kotaro Koizumi, precinct chief at Kawananakoa Middle School.
At the McKinley High School polling place there was less confusion, but also fewer people than some voters said they've seen in the past.
"I was surprised there's not as much people, normally when I come there's a line. I'm amazed and I think it's the weather. Maybe we should have canceled it until next Saturday," said voter Hilda Davis.
"I think it will be less (voter turnout) because of the storm. I think that (if) the voters had voted a little early it would have been safer just in case the polls didn't open," said Laura Nagasawa, precinct chair at McKinley High School.
But voters still trickled in; some are determined to make sure their vote counts, no matter what the weather brings.
"That wasn't going to stop me. I was going to come vote first thing, I was going to do it today that's why I'm here at 8 o'clock," said voter Anthony Lynch.
