IN: Voter turnout light in Vigo County* (ES&S iVotronic no paper)
http://tribstar.com/news/x500180624/Voter-turnout-light-in-Vigo-County
...The final tally of ballots changed nearly five hours after the polls closed, when the clerk's office realized ballots cast by touch screen, used by handicapped voters, had not be counted.
...
Tabulation of 87 voting precincts was progressing speedily with all but six precincts counted as of about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday, then delays slowed the final tabulation, ending at 8:40 p.m. The six precincts had technical problems and were unable to send in results over computer lines.

The final precinct -- Honey Creek E at Dixie Bee Elementary -- experienced such a problem; however, poll workers left a computer card in a voting machine, forcing them to drive back to the poll, then back to the county courthouse for a final tabulation, Mansard said.

The Democratic Party race for prosecutor was by far the closest contest, with final numbers fluctuating as "remake" ballots were counted. Those ballots were damaged, such as a bent corner, and would not go through a voting machine at the poll site.

...There were 27 remake votes, according to the clerk's office.

...at about five polling places, voting machines were delivered just minutes before polls opened.

At Culver Elementary School, voting in the primary election was delayed by about 40 minutes. Poll workers told us they had just gotten those machines.
...
Kirk says there was a scramble yesterday to get machines delivered and her biggest concern was that in the chaos, some of them went to the wrong places.
