The wait to cast a ballot in one Arlington, Va. location was as long as four hours — other areas had even longer waits.
Lots of Virginians left polling places frustrated on Tuesday. In some spots, there were reports of four hour long lines. And many locations only had one electronic voting machine; even then some malfunctioned. This has Democrats calling for drastic changes, but Governor McDonnell says they're jumping the gun.
"There are mechanical and human errors that occur, but overall from what I have heard everything has gone as well as it could," says McDonnell.
Still, McDonnell says his administration is planning to examine the complaints coming in from all corners of the commonwealth.
"After every election, we always do an after action review," he says. "We assess what we did right, what we did wrong, what the problems were at the polls, electronically or procedurally and then we make adjustments."
After the review is complete, McDonnell is promising to work with the legislature to straighten out any kinks.
