RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Election officials reported few voting problems in North Carolina during the morning Tuesday.
 
State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett says a few precincts reported problems getting machines powered up, but that is not unusual. Also, a bomb threat was called in to three unspecified polling places in Cumberland County, but Bartlett says law enforcement determined it was a hoax and voting was not interrupted.
 
It is a cold and cloudy Election Day across the state, but Bartlett says turnout has been steady.
 
Voters in North Carolina are deciding whether to put a Republican in the Executive Mansion for the first time since 1993 and to give Democrats a winning streak for president in the state.
