Mayhem at the Polls
Today's t-storms caused only minor glitches for voters, cutting power at four polling places across the state but not affecting voting, state election officials said. Election officials followed contingency plans and used back-up battery equipment, so voting equipment was not affected.
However, two voting locations were locked down for 45 minutes in Virginia Beach following reports that a gunman was in the area. No injuries were reported.
One voter in Virginia Beach was asked to come back later.
And in Prince William County, someone forgot to tell the custodian to open the doors at one polling location, so election officials followed their contingency plan and opened in a parking lot.
