Local vote for Hillary, Mitt (MA)    Story Here  Archive

The unofficial count wasn’t tallied until 10 p.m. due to an earlier technical glitch, City Clerk Rosie Blackwell said. Blackwell said votes from precincts A and B of Ward 4 — whose polling stations were at the Joseph Martin and East Taunton Elementary schools — had to be counted and recorded separately.
The reason for the extra work, she said, was a result of a problem she detected last Friday with regard to the memory card the city received from LHS Associates of Methuen — the company that provided the voting machines. Blackwell said the problem was not serious and in no way compromised the integrity of the voting process. But she did say she and her associates had to improvise and create a new form to specifically accommodate Ward 4 returns.
