Verify | Broken poll machines fixed at Therrell High after complaints

Voters discuss the political climate and their thoughts on voting on Election Day 2016.

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- 11Alive News received e-mails Tuesday morning from concerned voters in Fulton County saying there were computer issues at the Therrell High School polling location.

Our #VerifyVotes team headed there to get some answers.

We learned two of the four express poll units stopped working. The express poll units scan drivers licenses and issue voter cards.

The machines successfully rebooted and are working properly.

A volunteer inside says the issue was fixed by 9:45 a.m.

The 17 voting machines were not impacted. We’re told the technical issue caused long lines and some people left in frustration.

Fulton County officials tell us “Earlier this morning the poll manager at Therrell High School re-booted their express poll machine.”
