And so it begins:

Problems were being reported at nine of 14 early voting sites in Broward County on Monday morning.

Gisela Salas, of the Broward Elections Office, said workers were having problems with a live database connection that is used to verify that a voter is properly registered.

The sites, Salas said, that were unaffected were at satellite offices in Deerfield Beach, Hollywood, Lauderhill, Pembroke Pines and Plantation.

All the branch offices were reported having problems with the database connection. Many of the sites had voters lined up to cast their ballots.
