Big Voter Problems this morn. Durham County NC/Pen & Paper Check-in Only

http://m.dailykos.com/stories/1593188

Durham County NC's most liberal county - lots of voter issues
Nov 08, 2016 7:17am CST by durhammichael

This is breaking, but something in Durham County has gone wrong this morning. This is the bluest county in the state and the computers don’t seem to be working properly. A lot of folks being turned away from the polling locations this morning in Durham. They’ve gone to pen and paper check-in only.

Welp. Precinct officials in Durham County have been told to stop using the computers for voter check-in and to start using the poll books.

Charlie Reece ✔@CharlieReece
There is apparently some kind of county-wide technical problem that has necessitated reverting to pen and paper. 📝

From Durham County Website:
Appears the problem will only affect wait time.

Anyone who knows more about this, please post.
Lines will be long enough without this problem. Hope it is fixed.

2. Send lawyers and National Guard

Right wingers are trying to block the vote in the most Democratic areas.

Keep all of the electronic evidence for prosecution too.

11. JESUS H, never turn people away.....

it appalling that training didn't provided the method to use a damn pencil & paper. What would they do if there was a power outage?

I'm in NY and its a paper & pencil ck in takes a minute, in most cases the poll workers already know who people are or ask last name to get to page.

13. My county uses poll books, and my polling place processes a person every few seconds.

.


That's the difference between staffing a polling site to embrace voting, versus deterring it.
