COLUMBIA - Poll workers throughout Columbia said voting ran smoothly Tuesday without long waits.

One Columbia resident Ron Mihner said the reason he votes is because it is his civic duty.

"For the first ward is that there are 9 people running and one of them being a write in and that's different," said Mihner.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbia said at 12 p.m. it had 314 voters adn at 6 p.m. teh church had more than 600 voters.

Almost an hour later, the Columbia Public Library election officials said at 12:50 p.m. it had a total of 239 people vote so far.

Columbia Public Library officials said their voters are consistent every year at their precinct because of their location. They said this year has been slow even though it has stayed consistent.

Workers there said the longest time without voters at its precinct was 20 minutes. 

At 1:50 p.m. the ARC said it had 284 voters come throughout the day.

Election officials say the rain could have been a reason for a slow voting start to the morning.

Signs supporting Tuesday night's propositions and city positions are posted throughout Columbia as voters await decisions on proposition 1 and 2 along with new positions.
