Paper ballots temporarily used at Midtown precinct

Fulton County voters casting ballots at Crosby Spears Towers on North Avenue in Midtown had to use paper ballots temporarily after the polls opened.

County elections chief Dwight Brower told the AJC electronic voting was disrupted due to a malfunction that lasted about 40 minutes. During that time,  poll workers issued paper ballots. No further problems were reported after electronic voting was restored, Brower said.

Same thing happened more briefly at St Phillips in Buckhead. People were a little concerned about how their votes might count, but they had to get to work. The experience may changed a few votes, if the voting machines don’t work; how well will they manage the eight billion dollars?
