'We have had no complaints'
In Tarrant County, election officials said there were no major issues at polling places despite rumors to the contrary.
Election Protection, which bills itself as the nation's oldest and largest non-partisan voter protection coalition, sent an email to the news media claiming voters had reported not enough ballots at Chisholm Ridge Elementary School in Fort Worth.
But Karen Lawrence, acting chief deputy elections administrator, said no precincts reported running out of ballots.
"We have had no complaints period," Lawrence said.
Deborah Peoples, chair of the Tarrant County Democratic Party, also said she hasn't had any issues.
"This is the third primary since I've been chair and this one has run the smoothest," Peoples said.
The elections office did receive one complaint of one voter who said they were voting Democrat and some bystanders said "Jesus will forgive you."
Lawrence said she visited the polling place at the Saginaw Senior Center and neither the Democratic nor Republican precinct judge witnessed anything and that no one was harassing voters when she arrived.
