<VIDEO>      RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Long lines and some glitches are being reported at precincts in Virginia as voters head to the polls to cast their ballots.
 
     Polls opened at 6 a.m. Tuesday. Media outlets report voters began lining up at precincts in Hampton Roads and other areas as early as 4:30 a.m.
 
     Power outages briefly disrupted voting at at least three polling places in Eastern Henrico. Dominion Power says all electricity was restored by 7:41 a.m.
 
     In Spotsylvania, election official John Adams says one precinct had machines available only for one of two congressional districts. Additional machines were brought in.
 
     The Grayson County Voter Registrar's office says a poll worker made a mistake setting up voting machines at one precinct.
 
     Malfunctioning ballot counting machines were reported at a polling place in Newport News.
