AUSTIN (KXAN) — During the morning of Election Day laptop issues were reported at Austin’s Hill Elementary School.
The problem took a few hours to be resolved. For voters that meant waiting in line for an estimated 15 minutes, which is double the typical time it takes to usually cast a vote at the north central Austin school.
One voter explained what happened to him when he showed up to vote at 8 a.m.
“When I showed up at the door a man kind of came right at me at the door and let me know that there’s something wrong with their computer here,” said voter Tom Wernimont. “So he said it might take like 15 minutes for me to vote and he said I could go vote nearby which I am going to do.”
It is probably a good idea for voters to have a backup polling location in mind in case their is a glitch or a long line.
