Some East Texas Counties Had Trouble After The Polls Closed

There were a few problems with ballots, locally.   In Smith County, election results didn't come in until after 11:00 p.m.. Election officials say the computer which processes the poll results had a power problem. In Rusk County, vote totals from Kilgore didn't come in until 10:30 p.m. last night. They blamed it on balancing issues with the Kilgore ballot box. Then in Cherokee County, the county clerk says it took longer than expected last night to count the votes, and that they are still getting used to new voting machines.
