Several polling places experiencing minor issues

Voters head to the Indianapolis City County Building to cast their ballot.

HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — Hancock County Election Board says due to an error in the data provided by the software vendor, some ballots at the Ninestar Vote Center may have not included the County Commissioner Races.

According to a release, the Election Board was notified approximately at 10:06 Tuesday morning about the issue. The issue was addressed approximately at 10:26 a.m.

The Election Board said any voter in the Ninestar voting location at that time or thereafter was issued a correct ballot. They said they spoke with the State of Indiana Election Division and informed them of the possible issue regarding the ballots.

The State Election Division said “there is no legal authority for taking any further action at this time.”

No other Hancock County voting location was affected.

Several other polling places experienced some “minor issues” according to the Greenfield Mayor’s office.

An election board member said the county experienced problems county wide with the voting machines connecting to the system.

On Tuesday, voters took to the polls beginning at 6 a.m.

They said they are working on the problem.

A voter told 24-Hour News 8 that people are leaving a polling location because of the issues.

It was not immediately clear what those issues were.

Polls are open until 6 p.m. Tuesday.
