Polling place says equipment not delivered (CA)
Associated Press 05 February 2008
LOS ANGELES—The electoral inspector at the Westside Jewish Community Center says he still has not received voting equipment, hours after polls opened.
Bernie Cade says he has not received voting machines or the ink that goes in them for any of the seven booths in the polling station.
Dozens of people were sent to other polling places nearby, but Cade says a voting troubleshooter is now on hand and the polling place is accepting hand-marked ballots.
Still, Cade says the process is slow, and he is worried about delays as the day wears on.
Los Angeles County Registrar's office spokeswoman Grace Chavez says someone with the equipment should be on their way soon.
