Lebanon 1 Precinct report 387 of 1,563 voters had voted by 3:30 p.m.

In East St. Louis, reports from several precincts show turnout at between 20 and 30 percent by 4:30 p.m.

An observer roaming polling places in Madison County said turnout appears heavier than anticipated there.

In Hamel, there was a line to vote.

In Edwardsville, the polls were crowded until about 10 a.m. but have slowed down.

Voter turnout in Godfrey and Highland als has been high.
