According to Broome, the information contained on the ballots pertaining to the candidates - paper and electronic - are correct. However, the bar code at the bottom of the ballot was printed incorrectly. The new electronic voting system, Ivotronic, does not have the correct programming to read the paper ballots.
Plan A calls for the state Election Commission to reprogram the Personal Electronic Ballot to read the existing bar code at the bottom of the Phillips County ballot instead of reprinting ballots. At this late stage, reprinting the ballots is out of the question. The PCEC was not informed of the printing error until Monday evening, less than 24 hours before regular voting began.
