Errors found in voting machines

Several people who selected a candidate for Salina City Commission Tuesday may have found another candidate check-marked instead.

By GARY DEMUTH

Salina Journal

Several people who selected a candidate for Salina City Commission on Tuesday might have found that the voting machine they were using instead put a checkmark by another candidate.

Voting machine errors were reported at Trinity Lutheran Church, Ninth and Crawford streets; Christ the King Lutheran Church, 111 W. Magnolia; and at a church in Kipp, according to Saline County Clerk Don Merriman.

The problem was this: When a voter pressed a certain candidate's bar on the voting machine's screen, the candidate above the selected candidate instead received the checkmark.

Coincidentally, the computer voting machines began coming in about the time
