Voters turned away from Florida poll at 9:30 am; already out of GOP ballots, sources say

It didn’t take long for Tuesday’s primary election to get off to a rocky start.

Voters in Apopka, Fla., say they were turned away after the polling station ran out of GOP ballots at 9:30 a.m., News 6 reported.

Eventually, the polling place at Errol Estates was able to obtain more ballots, but it was too late for those who said they had other commitments.

Taken from News 6:

Meanwhile, technical issues plagued several Orange County polling locations on Tuesday, prompting officials to use backup paper registries to enroll voters in the Florida presidential primary, according to elections officials.

Orange County Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles said technicians were sent to the locations to fix the issue, described as a connectivity problem.

Colwes said the problem caused delays, but no voters had to be turned away.


Colwes tried to reassure News 6 that Orange County precincts have backup plans should voters need to be checked in manually.
