Voting machine problems delay some Ind. voters

FISHERS, Ind. — Voting machine problems have caused delays and long lines at one polling station in a heavily populated Indianapolis suburb.

Hamilton County residents had to wait nearly 30 minutes to vote at Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers because voting machines weren't operating when that polling site opened Tuesday.

WTHR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/TtcyZQ ) that by the time the problem was fixed a half-hour later the school's gym was filled with voters and the line spilled out the door.

The heavily Republican county north of Indianapolis saw other polling station problems, but those were quickly fixed.

Hamilton County Election Administrator Kathy Richardson says cards used to clear tallies from machines before voting begins were improperly programmed. Some 500 machines in about 150 polling places had to be reset once those cards were reprogrammed.
