Why some Pulaski votes aren't being fed into scanners this morning

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 9:36 AM

A voter from the Mother Church — Pulaski Heights Presbyterian in the Free State of Hillcrest — reports that ballots weren't being put in the scanner this morning, but dropped in a box. It made him nervous. Pulaski Election Coordinator Melinda Allen explains:

Some of polling locations are experiencing equipment problems with the M100 Scanner reading. Even though all of the equipment was tested before it was sent out, sometimes we do have technical difficulties. Since we do vote on paper ballot on Election Day, we are able to continue letting the voters vote. The poll workers are trained to have the voters place their ballots in the emergency bin and when the equipment issue is fixed, two poll workers insert the ballot into the m100 and document this on their Election Protocol Form.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience, but I do promise your vote will be counted and we are working on the issue right now.
