NEW YORK (AP) ­- Add former first daughter Chelsea Clinton to the list of voters who ran into trouble at polling places Tuesday.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton told reporters at a campaign stop near her home in Chappaqua that Chelsea had been turned away at a Manhattan polling site because her name did not appear in a book of registered voters.

Investigators determined that her name had been sent to the wrong polling location, so she wasn’t able to vote in the polling booth. She was offered an affadavit vote, similar to provisional ballots used in other states.

Sen. Clinton was expected to cruise to re-election Tuesday.
