Voters Report Broken Machines in Buffalo, Brooklyn Center (MN)
Overall, few voting problems on Election Day in Minnesota
My Fox Twin Cities. November 4, 2008.
BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. Several voters Tuesday morning reported problems with ballot machines at metro polling places.
One voter called FOX 9, saying the machines weren’t working at the church at 7200 Brooklyn Blvd in Brooklyn Center. She said judges were collecting paper ballots and telling voters they would be counted later.
In Buffalo, lines backed up at the voting machines, despite no lines at the booths. The machine was spitting out ballots and returning error messages.
Overall, there have been no reports of widespread voting problems across Minnesota.
A few other minor glitches included a power outage to two polling locations in St. Paul after a car hit a power pole in Merriam Park. A Ramsey County election official said the power was out for just over an hour, but has since been restored.
