Voters experience troubles at the polls

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Congressman Hansen Clarke and his opponent and incumbent Gary Peters smoothly cast their votes this morning, but, that wasn't the case for all voters.

The principal of Murray-Wright High School in Detroit ordered voters to be searched, which lead to some leaving without even casting a vote.

"I told them, 'you cannot frisk voters,' and they said, 'OK we'll stop,'" said City Clerk Janice Winfrey.

The 11th District has is interesting as well with Kerry Bentivolio versus write-in candidate Nancy Cassis.

Voters need to spell her name correctly or she doesn't get the vote. Political pollster Tarek Baydoun said, "there will certainly be challenges, about what certain people's intent was."

If the election is extremely close, it may take days to count -- and recount-- signatures and figure out the many ways people spelled "Cassis."
