LAKE COUNTY, Fla. - Voters who headed out early to cast their ballots in Lake County hit a snag on Tuesday.
The problems were reported by FOX 35 viewers at Precincts 105 and 88.
"This morning shortly after opening the polls, we identified a computer problem in some precincts that incorrectly identified some voters were not registered in that precinct," the Lake County Supervisor of Elections Alan Hays told FOX 35 News.
Apparently, the voting system told voters at seven polling locations that they were not registered to vote there. They say voters from multiple precincts were assigned to vote at the sites but the computers only had the voter data from some of the precincts.
"The problem was isolated immediately and corrective action was initiated. The solution is being deployed and everything will be fine very shortly. We appreciate the patience of the voters as we correct this unfortunate inconvenience," Hays added.
Provisional ballots were given to voters who could not come back later after the issue was resolved. The county's election supervisor says all ballots will be counted.
The glitch was reportedly fixed by 8:30 a.m.
