JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We've received reports that several Hinds County precincts ran out of ballots Tuesday afternoon. Precinct 20 at Collins Funeral Home on Northside Drive ran out around 5 p.m.

Poll workers say a Hinds County Deputy is on his way to the precinct with more ballots and the polling place will be open until all the people waiting have voted. They say no affidavit ballots will be given out.

Precinct 43 at the Fresh Start Christian Church on Manhatten Road and Precinct  B-1 at Griffith Memorial Baptist Church, New Hope Baptist Church on Watkins Drive and the Terry High School precinct have also run out.

Overall, the Secretary of State's office says the election has gone pretty smoothly.
