Editor's note: There have been a few reports from U.S. polling places today of evacuations or other disturbances that increased the wait for some voters. In Santa Clara County, Calif., voters were evacuated from the Registrar of Voters building after a fire alarm went off; @MattKellerABC7 reports the cause was determined to have been burnt toast, and people were allowed back inside after about an hour. In Providence, R.I., @Alana_Cerrone reports an abandoned backpack led to an evacuation and a similar delay for voters. We're watching for more on this angle and will report on any situations that are flagged as significant by election officials or the campaigns. - Tricia
