Atlantic City: Voting Problems




A computer software glitch caused election returns in Atlantic County to be delayed until early morning yesterday, election officials said. John Mooney, the Atlantic County elections superintendent, said his office was working with the manufacturer of the voting machines, Sequoia Voting Systems, to determine what caused the problem. The number of votes on each of the machines was properly recorded and tallied. But there was a problem in transferring that data from individual machines to a central database that tallied all the votes, he said.
