Swing State Project: RON: Day Begins With Vote Machines Problems

RON: Day Begins With Vote Machines Problems
Posted by Tim Tagaris

The day got off the an inauspicious beginning in Ohio, and it had to do with voting machines...again. From the Toledo Blade:

Voting so far on new touch-screen machines has not been quite as seamless as local board of elections officials had hoped. Lucas County Board of Elections director Jill Kelly said some voters left the precincts this morning without voting because the machines were not up and running. She urged people who had problems to return and cast their ballots.

Lucas County is Toledo. But that wasn't the only place with problems...

Wood County residents in some precincts arrived at 6:30 a.m. only to find that the machines were not yet up and running, said elections director Terry Burton. But all precincts had at least one machine up by 6:40 a.m. and all machines in the majority of the county were available for voters by about 7:30 a.m., he said.

Only in Ken Blackwell's world is functional machines in *a majority* of the county acceptable. How about the entire county? No, that would be too much to ask.
