Some Minneapolis Precincts Dealing with Mechanical Issue
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The city of Minneapolis says voting machines in a small number of its precincts are experiencing mechanical issues.
City Clerk Casey Carl says the issue is affecting about 10 of the city’s 117 precincts. Voters are still being allowed to turn in their ballots, which are being kept in the election machines’ auxiliary compartments until they can be counted.
Carl says every ballot will be counted.
He says the issue was first reported in one precinct at about 8 a.m., and seemed to be an anomaly. Other precincts began calling in with similar issues at about 9:30 or 10 a.m. The city was still working to resolve the problem by midday.
Carl says the issue is not causing any voter delays.
