Did everything run smoothly at your polling place yesterday? Any interesting or unusual stories? Were you at one of the spots that ran out of ballots?

Let us know here or at 510-293-2473.

4 p.m. update: Contrary to earlier reports, only one polling site in our part of the county temporarily ran out of some ballots yesterday: the Marina Community Center in San Leandro. And afternoon voting there still took “under 10 minutes,” according to a voter who later contributed his photo of the site to the New York Times. Of the 14 spots in Alameda County that, because of unexpectedly high turnout, ran out of Democratic or provisional ballots in the afternoon, most were resupplied rapidly and all by the evening rush, said Guy Ashley, spokesman for the Registrar.
