DOVER, Del. (AP) — The Latest on the general election in Delaware(all times local):

11:30 a.m.

Polls in Delaware are busy as voters cast their ballots and officials aren’t seeing any serious problems.

Elections Commissioner Elaine Manlove said Tuesday that officials are handling any minor issues they’re encountering at the polls. She says she has been hearing that polling places are busy, so she is expecting turnout to be good.

Incumbent U.S. Sen. Tom Carper and fellow Democrat Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester are favored to win re-election to Congress. Carper is being challenged by Republican businessman and Sussex County councilman Rob Arlett. Rochester faces Scott Walker, a political gadfly and former Democrat who is waging a one-man campaign with no donated money and has been disavowed by the state GOP for his controversial remarks.

Tuesday’s election isn’t likely to change the political hue in solidly blue Delaware, although voters do have the chance to make the picture a little rosier for Republicans by ending one-party control of the state legislature.

Given their significant advantages in fundraising and voter registration numbers, incumbent U.S. Sen. Tom Carper and fellow Democrat Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester are favored to win re-election to Congress. Carper is being challenged by Republican businessman and Sussex County councilman Rob Arlett. Rochester faces Scott Walker, a political gadfly and former Democrat who is waging a one-man campaign with no donated money and has been disavowed by the state GOP for his controversial remarks.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
