Long lines and sporadic problems with voting machines caused snags in some key states during Tuesday's closely watched U.S. election.

Voters waited for up to four hours in Virginia and three hours in some parts of south Florida, leading some to walk away before casting a ballot.

In Pinellas County, Fla., which includes St. Petersburg, officials had to send a corrective message to 12,000 absentee voters after an automated call told them they needed to get their ballot in "tomorrow." The message was supposed to have gone out Monday, but was sent out Tuesday due to a computer glitch, said Nancy Whitlock, a spokeswoman for the county supervisor of elections.
