The primary races are heating up, and apparently the voting booths are, too.
A voter at the Virginia-Highland precinct across from Inman Middle School tells the AJC that the air conditioning wasn’t working at 9 a.m.
The voter also said the polling place did not open for voting until 8:45 a.m.
Another voter reported “plenty of confusion” at a precinct on North Druid Hills Road.
The voter asked for a Democratic ballot but was given a card that activated the Republican primary ballot on the electronic voting machine.
The voter spoke to a poll worker who helped eject the ballot activation card.
But the card wouldn’t clear, even after the help of additional poll workers.
That meant the voter eventually had to fill out a “provisional ballot” — one that’s used when the voter’s eligibility is in question — by hand.
If you’re having trouble voting at the polls or see long lines, text your info to 404-890-0252 and let our reporters know.
