LEWISBURG - Voters in Lewisburg reported a problem with a machine at an East Buffalo Township polling place, when the machine was not properly selecting candidates.
The touchscreen system on one of the electronic voting machines at Elmcroft Senior Living Community was not properly marking the chosen candidates, said Susan Travis, the judge of elections for the Union County polling location.
After several complaints, the machine - one of five at the polling location
- was shut down until a technician could come and examine the machine.
"If they can calibrate it, we should be able to get" it working properly, Travis said.
Greg Katherman, director of the board of elections for Union County, said he was not sure how many votes were affected by the malfunction, but that misvotes are a possibility for any ballot. Voters should be sure to check the summary screen before submitting a final ballot, he said.
Of the 100 electronic voting machines in Union County, this is the only one to have a malfunction, Katherman said.
Most people who were affected by the malfunction were able to select their chosen candidate, Travis said.
Turnout at the polling place was heavy Tuesday morning, Travis said. As of 11:30 a.m. 450 people had cast their ballots at the polling place.
