Though everyone's ballot will be counted today -- and the problem amounts to no more han "a little technical" glitch -- the vote scanners at two precincts are not working.
The scanners at the American Legion and at Chippens Hill Middle School are not working, officials said.
"It's all taken care of," said Republican Registrar Ellie Klapatch.
Officials are getting new memory cards from the secretary of the state and trying to get them programmed quickly enough to use soon.
In the meantime, the filled-in ballots are secure, she said, and will be run through the scanners as soon as they can be.
None of this has any real impact on people voting, by the way. It just means the ballots they fill in are put aside to scan later.
