Horry County, South Carolina, now has enough paper ballots, and is encouraging anyone who couldn’t vote earlier because of a lack of paper ballots to return.
This is the county that had problems earlier in the day:
As many as 90 percent of the electronic voting machines in one coastal South Carolina county did not work when polls opened in Saturday’s Republican primary and officials also worried that snow forecast for the northern part of the state could impact voter turnout.
Lisa Bourcier, a spokeswoman in Horry County, which is home to Myrtle Beach, said 80 percent of the roughly 400 machines that failed to function were up and running by noon and that technicians were working on the rest. She said officials had heard reports of voters being turned away because of machine failures, but had no idea how many.
Turnout was “a steady stream throughout the day.”
