Small problems popped up during Tuesday's presidential preference primary in Georgia, though voting was mostly smooth in an election that drew a greater-than-expected turnout. Some 41 percent of registered Muscogee County voters braved the threat of rain to cast ballots for Republican and Democratic candidates. Problems for those voters were scattered across the 48 precincts, starting at Arnold Middle School when the first 16 voters had to cast provisional ballots because an express poll machine wasn't functioning properly.

"Touted at the time of the buy as having the ability to count 400 ballots a minute each, the county's six Sequoia Voting Systems machines actually ran at a tenth the advertised speed. The counters - which required one staff person to feed ballots into the machine and another to catch the ballots as they flew out - took more than 12 hours to count 182,000 ballots.

Election returns from the first precinct of the Second Ward were missing 247 of its 540 ballots, said poll watcher Shannon Seiberling. The polling place, located at the McGaw YMCA, 1000 Grove St., used a mix of optical-scan and computerized voting systems. Seiberling said the error probably occurred while poll workers were compiling the digital results from the four touch-screen voting machines at the polling place, when the scanner was supposed to add its total automatically.

At 10 p.m. Tuesday, at the Election Commission office, Brown didn't mention the multiple recounts that plagued election results in the coun- ty in 2006. But he was quick to say that only one report of results should be anticipated this time. "It's going to be awhile. We're just running them. We're gong to run the whole batch at one time and report it all at one time. … It's longer than we anticipated (getting a final count )," he said. The count would be completed if in recent years electronic-voting machines hadn't replaced the county's old punch-card voting system, Brown said. "I wish we had it all done. If we had punch cards, it would have been," he said. The commission would get the results and release them as soon as possible, he said.
