Some glitches reported at Chicago polls

By The Associated Press

CHICAGO – Scattered voting glitches are being reported at some Chicago polling places.

Voting in Washington Park on the South Side was slowed when there were not enough pens to mark the ballots.

And at the Club Lucky bar and restaurant in Bucktown, a touchscreen voting machine wasn’t working. That meant voters had to use paper ballots.

Election Judge Joe Lake says three election judges didn’t show up, so he recruited volunteers from among the voters standing in line.

Now things are moving along, and a line snakes out the door and down the sidewalk.

    Lake says he’s grateful for the balmy weather.
