PROVIDENCE â€” Rhode Islanders were facing long lines and, in at least two polling places, the wrong ballots as they began voting Tuesday in a hotly contested congressional race and on whether to allow the state's two slots parlors to turn into full-fledged casinos.
Officials said the incorrect ballots were delivered by the state Board of Elections for two polling places, West Kingston Elementary School in South Kingstown and Elks Lodge in West Warwick. Voting was delayed in each location, and some voters left without casting a ballot, according to town officials.
