Election officials are reporting fairly low turnout and just a few hiccups as voting continues Tuesday in Albuquerque's municipal elections.

The city clerk told us that fewer people likely showed up to the polls today because more of them voted early.

She said she's expecting a 15 percent turnout -- which is actually up from the 10.5 percent turnout in 2007.

There have been some hiccups today because of the new computer system the city is using.

Under this system, people sign in electronically.

It allows the city to consolidate voting centers, but it has caused some headaches.

Polling sites at some schools are being switched to different rooms, to allow them to maintain a wireless internet connection.

Some voters we talked to had trouble getting situated -- and that caused some frustrations.
