MIAMI- Election officials in Miami-Dade County have finished counting votes from Tuesday's general election.

Residents say they're angry and embarrassed by the voting debacle. Some people waited in line up to seven hours and as late as 11:00 p.m. to cast a ballot, even after the results of the election were made public.

County Election Supervisor Penelope Townsley says the elections office was overwhelmed by the number of voters.

Some polling stations also ran out of ballots, contributing to the long lines and delays.
