Computerized voting machines have stopped working at all polling locations in a county in Georgia, officials reported on Election Day.“The computers at all polling locations across Spalding County are down. The problem is being worked on and hopefully will be resolved quickly,” the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.“Until the issue is fixed, paper ballots are being used at all locations.”A spokeswoman for the county’s Board of Elections didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The board didn’t answer a phone call on Tuesday.
Spalding County, in western Georgia, has a population of about 67,000.
Spalding County Elections Supervisor Marcia Ridley told WSB-TV that the computer issue was caused by a glitch.
Officials were waiting for the Dominion company to send workers to fix the machines, she said.
