AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Latest on Tuesday's primary election in Texas (all times local):

10:45 a.m.

Voting got off to a slow start in Travis County on Tuesday because many election workers did not show up.

The Travis County Clerk's Office says multiple election judges and poll workers were no-shows for Tuesday's primary election. The office says some workers cited fears of coronavirus as a reason for not showing up Tuesday.

The election office says it began implementing emergency procedures, with elections staff and others employees filling in as poll workers.

Multiple polling places had wait times of 20 minutes or longer, according to the clerk's office.
