ATLANTA State officials are investigating after memory cards were left in Atlanta voting machines overnight.
Fulton County Board of Elections Director Barry Garner said the memory cards were inadvertently left in seven Atlanta precincts Tuesday night.
Garner says the poll workers were in a hurry and didn't ensure that all the cards were removed from the machines. He called the oversight unacceptable and said procedures would be put in place to make sure it doesn't occur again.
A spokesman for the Secretary of State said that office's inspector general was investigating.
The roughly 200 votes were counted Wednesday afternoon and did not affect the outcome of any races.
