Missing data cards delay election totals in Toledo

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – Officials say missing data cards and other unspecified problems delayed primary election results in one northwest Ohio county.

Tuesday’s results in Lucas County were delayed until past midnight, according to The (Toledo) Blade. The elections office website Wednesday morning showed all the votes counted.

Elections director Gina Kaczala says results were delayed partially because of the missing cards, but she also indicated there were other unspecified problems.

An employee of Dominion, the company that operates the touch screen voting machines, confirmed to the newspaper that five cards were missing just after midnight.
