More troubles with electronic voting - in Winnebago County

Some residents were unable to vote in Tuesday's presidential primary after they mistakenly selected the nonpartisan designation on the electronic voting machines and submitted their ballots without correcting the error.

City Clerk Patty Sturn said some voters didn't realize that they were required to select a party designation if they wished to vote in the presidential race.

Presidential primaries are party races and there are no nonpartisan presidential candidates. If voters did not select a party designation, they were able to vote only for the school board.
