Voting Machines Malfunctioning Because of Bad Ballots

- Some Daviess County voters looking to vote on the issues started having issues with voting machines in some precincts.

Daviess County Clerk David Osborne says 25% of the e-scan machines weren't reading ballots properly.  Osborne says the problem centered around bar codes on the ballots, which weren't printed correctly.  Workers spent the day trying to fix the problem, as well as printing thousands of ballots as back ups.  Some voters had to use back-up voting machines, but Osborne says voters weren't experiencing many problems throughout the day.  Daviess County started using the electronic scanning machines less than 10 years ago.
