Minor technical issues reported with voting machines in Waukesha

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A few voting machines at polling places in Waukesha were malfunctioning.

They weren't accepting ballots, the County Clerk said.

She called it a minor glitch, however, and says it will have no impact on voters.

There were also extra machines on hand as backup.

There was another issue reported with the express touchscreen voting machines, but the problem was resolved quickly.

Technicians are around to fix the machines should anymore problems arise.

"One of them was jamming, and the other one was not reading. In the situations were they weren't reading, they were actually leased equipment, that the municipalities got to have some extra fallback, so there may have been some issues in terms of what our medis is, but they're reading fine on all our pieces of equipment," said Kathleen Novack, Waukesha County Clerk.

Those issues are normal election day quirks, officials say. The real story Tuesday was strong voter turnout.
