Polls Running Smoothly in Cleveland
Voting in Cleveland and its surrounding suburbs is going smoothly, elections officials say. As of 10 a.m., the board had received reports of 25 problems with scanners across the county. Five of the scanners were replaced. Of the more than 1,400 precincts in Cuyahoga County, only three were not open for voting at 6:30 a.m. The others opened up within minutes. And just 2 percent of nearly 8,600 poll workers did not report last night or this morning, compared with an absence rate of around 20 percent in 2006. This is despite a report this morning by Election Protection of "general confusion and mechanical malfunctions" in Cleveland. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Election Protection)
