Across the Country, States are Reporting Broken Voting Machines

This could be a problem.

According to The Hill, it’s not a smooth ride at every voting location around the country.

 About six hours after polling began Tuesday, voters have reported broken machines in multiple locations, a common occurrence on Election Day that can lead to longer wait times.

Most reports of broken machines have come from New York, Illinois, North Carolina, Kentucky, Texas and Ohio, according to Electionland, a nonprofit project in partnership with ProPublica.

Experts say that broken machines should not impact an area’s ability to record or count votes. In most cases when machines are broken, voters use a paper ballot that will be manually tallied.

Electionland reported that every location that reported problems Tuesday had been able to collect votes.

It always worries me when they say, “should not,” rather than “will not.”

There are also at least two Connecticut towns reporting that the machines in their area are non-functioning.

This is not the way to run an election, folks.
