Glitch Stops Vote Counting in Marion (WV)
WHSV - TV 04 November 2008
Most of the ballots are in at the Marion County election center, but County Commissioner Wayne Stutler says there is no telling how soon they will be counted.
The machines that scan the ballots quit tabulating votes around 7:30 p.m. when clerks tried to feed in the results of early voting. Stutler says that caused a glitch in the software and stopped all vote-counting.
He says the cause is unclear. The problem may be in the software or a program.
A technician was on site and had tried several possible repairs, but Stutler says that as of 9 p.m., none had worked.
Sixty-one of the county's 76 precincts were in.
