Technical Problems Slow Lake County Results

February 5, 2008

Technical problems are slowing down election results in Lake County. An undetermined server problem is preventing precincts from electronically reporting their ballot counts.

Willard Helander is Lake County Clerk. She says all ballot counter cards need to be driven to the county seat in Waukegan.

HELANDER: If we're lucky we'll have everything posted by midnight, but it's going to be tedious because they have to take every single ballot counter card and physically count each one, one at a time uploading.

Helander says the county hopes to get to the bottom of the technical difficulties by tomorrow.
