County administrator of elections Richard Holden said the problem was identified and most poll workers notified by 8 a.m., one hour after the polls opened. Both parties and the election commission were urging voters not to leave and to make sure they cast a ballot, even if only a provisional one.
Holden said the maximum number of people that could have been affected was about 5,300. However, we did hear reports that the glitch created some slowdowns at some locations. I also received a call from a gentleman who said it happened to two voters at his precinct, and said he was concerned that maybe someone had impersonated them in early voting.
Expect Democrats to holler long and loud, since this is only the second countywide election held since Republicans took over control of the election commission after the 2008 elections.
