 Update 9:30 p.m.

As the clock struck 8 p.m., a woman who spoke only Spanish learned she would not be able to cast her vote at the Eastern Salisbury Fire Department polling location. The Virginia Avenue resident, who hails from Colombia, showed up at the wrong poll, said Edward Sabol, the judge of elections.

Voting was heavy at Eastern Salisbury Department, Sabol said. Between 7 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., a line of 300 voters snaked out the doors to Honeysuckle Road.

"It went nuts," Sabol said. "We were averaging 104 voters an hour."

Update 5:20 p.m.

Turnout has been "very strong" all day at the polling site at Salisbury Middle School, according to George Wasilczyk, judge of elections.

By 9 a.m., they had as many voters show up as they did the entire day during the May primary, he said.

Polls have shown the presidential race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney tightening in the days before the Tuesday election.

Here's how Salisbury Township voted in the last two presidential elections:

Presidential balloting in Salisbury featured fairly close finishes in the 2004 and 2008 elections.

The national winners were the winners in Salisbury – President George Bush in 2004 and then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008.

Bush beat challenger Sen. John Kerry, 3,605 to 3,420, with Bush taking four of the township’s seven voting precincts.

Salisbury had eight precincts in 2008 when Obama defeated Sen. John McCain, 3,669 to 3,401. Each candidate won four precincts.
