Some voting machines in Schuylkill County would not accept a code needed to tally votes after the polls closed and were taken to Schuylkill Transportation building Tuesday.
Doug Litwhiler, who was a poll watcher in Ringtown Borough, said election workers tried several times to enter a code to tally a vote, which would not work. They called an IT person who gave them the passcode, which still did not work. Litwhiler said the device was then taken to the STS building. A paper printout that would normally be posted on the door with votes cast was not done so, he said
Election Director Albert Gricoski confirmed there was an problem with a machine in Ringtown and Upper Mahantongo and “maybe three or four” other ones. He thought the situation would be easily fixed, adding perhaps someone didn’t enter the password correctly.
