Patience tested as WC voters wait for broken machines
Even local politicians weren't immune today to some of the seemingly inevitable problems with new voting machines that have been causing voter concern since they were implemented.
Democratic state Senate candidate Suzi Oppenheimer's ballot tore in the middle as it went through the optical scanning machine at the Mamaroneck Town Center today. Voters waited patiently in line at the same location after two other machines jammed.
Voters at the Solomon Schecter School were told they could not vote for about two hours this morning because the ballots and the keys to the voting machines were stuck in a closet until poll workers could locate a custodian to open it up. By that time, around 25 to 35 people had left without casting their votes.
