Durham precincts switch to paper sign-in system after reported electronic issues

vote-stickerDurham residents may have to wait a little longer than usual to vote today as each precinct has switched to a paper sign-in system.

The county’s Board of Elections spokeswoman Briana Khan said there was a problem reported at six precincts with the electronic sign-in system, and they decided to switch all precincts to the paper sign-in system as a precaution while a third-party vendor works to identify the problem.

Khan said she didn’t expect lines to be terribly affected, and said voters on Twitter were reporting 15-minute wait times.
