|Local Voting Update 4pm|
Voter turnout has been heavy through the day in Christian County, with extra ballots needed for at least one precinct.
Christian County Clerk Mike Kem says the Crofton precinct came close to running out of ballots sometime early in the afternoon.
Kem says the only other issue in the afternoon at a precinct was a miscommunication about the ballot when the voter didn’t see the school board race.
What could have been a problem late in the morning turned out to be a non-issue, according to Kem, who says a good cleaning fixed a machine at St. John United Methodist Church.
The morning started with a couple of problems with handicapped voter machines in Lafayette and Herndon—though solutions were found quickly.
Nathan Dean is a poll worker at the Christian County Courthouse precinct and says it’s been a smooth day.
