Missouri Voter Registration System Glitch Leads to Delays
« on: November 02, 2010, 02:00:23 PM »
Missouri's statewide voter registration computer system has been down, creating delays in verifying voter registrations, according to local election officials.

"This issue is with Internet access to the voter look-up function,"  Laura Egerdal, spokeswoman for Missouri's secretary of state, told Fox News.

The system has been down since about 7:15 a.m., according to the Kansas City Star.

Egerdal said that there is not an issue with the voter registration database itself, and that election workers have manually been looking up voters.

Since 2006, voters who have had questions about where to vote could access a statewide computer system that houses statewide registration information. The computer glitches have forced poll workers to check paper records and poll maps to verify information and information that may not be up-to-date.

Didn't create any problems at our precinct........I think this only would effect someone that shows up at the incorrect precinct (their name is not in the registration log for that polling place), and the poll workers have to look up their correct polling place.

In a way, it might work in our favor........someone too stupid to check the location of their assigned polling place is obviously too stupid to cast a ballot.

I don't know if this is state-wide, but our polling location is printed on our voter registration card, and we are mailed a new one if it have to present the card to get a ballot.
