Poll worker errors rectified; votes flowing in Hudson  (NJ)

The Jersey Journal   05 February 2008

A problem with poll workers pulling cartridges out of electronic voting machines incorrectly slowed the vote counting in Hudson County tonight, but it looks like the votes are flowing again.

County Clerk Barbara Netchert told The Jersey Journal that some poll workers in districts throughout the county although heavily in Jersey City were pulling the cartridges out of the machines before closing the machines, resulting in them not registering properly.

Confused poll workers were calling the county Board of Elections and received instructions on how to properly shut the machines, then pull out the cartridges, she said.

The cartridges are then brought to the county clerk's office in Jersey City where they are being read.

So far, Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton has a wide lead over Sen. Barack Obama.

On the Republican side, Sen. John McCain is walloping all of his opposition.
