Voters Turned Away After Waiting Hours:
Voting Machine Glitch Adds To Early Voting Frustration

WPLG, Local 10, Miami and Fort Lauderdale. November 1, 2004

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. After waiting in line for several hours, several voters were told late Sunday evening that they would have to come back another day to be able to cast their ballot.

Hundreds of voters showed up to vote early at Howard Forman Health Park, so many that a decision was made to keep the voting facility open until 11 p.m.

Some people waited in line from early in the day until after the sun went down. Unfortunately, for a group of about 50 people, the waiting did not pay off. A mechanical problem with the voting machines caused election workers to close down polling place.

The group of 50 frustrated voters will have the opportunity to be first in line to vote today. Poll workers took down their numbers and names and will move them to the head of the line.

For one couple, it may not be enough. They were voting on Sunday because they planned to leave on vacation today. Now they will have to choose to cancel their trip, or give up their chance to vote.
