SUNBURY — There were a few glitches at polling places in Northumberland County on Election Day.

According to Mike Anderson, a deputy at the Board of Elections, voting at the Oaklyn school polling place in Sunbury was delayed because the voting machines were not set up.

Mr. Anderson said a last-minute judge of election replacement was not familiar with the set-up procedure. A machine technician was dispatched when other officials called the board office, Mr. Anderson said.

“I myself went out there around 7:15 and they got going shortly after that,” he said.

In Trevorton, a furnace problem at the Zerbe Township building was discovered last night, prompting the move of the polling place to the Trevorton United Methodist Church.

“One of the election workers out there attends that church and made the arrangements with the pastor,” Mr. Anderson said. “We were glad to go with that.”

The only other problem Mr. Anderson was aware of was with a voting machine in Shamokin’s 10th Ward, which had the wrong memory card in it. That problem was rectified before the first voters arrived, he said.
