8:01 AM Double glitches hit Warren precinct
A “perfect storm” of two polling problems temporarily halted Democratic voting at a Warren Township precinct this morning, officials said.
Precinct 22 at Warren Central High School opened without Democratic ballots, and then a touch-screen voting machine used as a backup failed, said Angie Nussmeyer, spokeswoman for the Marion County Clerk’s office.
“We resolved the issue by printing new Democratic ballots, which are being deployed as we speak,” Nussmeyer said shortly about 7:30 a.m. A technician was dispatched to fix the touch-screen machine, which is normally used for voters with disabilities who cannot use the optical-scan paper ballots.
Republican voters were not affected. New paper ballots were on hand and voting resumed by 7:45 a.m.
