Voter Turnout Meeting Expectations
Counties have scrambled to train more election judges for working with electronic and paper ballots. Several people KOMU spoke with said that the new electronic voting machines made the voting process easier and much faster. Others however said the machines didn't work for them at all.
As the hours wain before the polls close a steady stream of people have been seen stopping by Columbia polling places and many have been able to get in and out within five minutes of arriving.
"They seemed to be having no problems with it, they did an electronic change of address right there and everyone got to vote and everything was fine," said Leslie Ann Harris, voter.
