"Isolated" glitch with Nevada voting machines resolved
RENO, Nev. —
Nevada election officials reported "isolated incidents" in Washoe and Clark counties where a small number of the state's new touch screen voting machines failed to display the names of all candidates at polling places in Tuesday's primary election.
Nevada Secretary of State spokeswoman Jennifer Russell says in each case, the voter eventually was able to successfully cast a ballot with help from poll workers.
Officials in both counties say no vote totals were affected by the temporary glitch with the electronic machines made by Dominion Voting Systems, based in Denver and Toronto.
Washoe County Registrar of Voters Deanna Spikula says the "voter display" problems affected fewer than 10 voters.
Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria estimated his office received fewer than 20 similar "isolated" reports.
