Illinois Review has just been notified that 65 counties in Illinois are facing ballot size problems, according to the Macoupin County Election Clerk.
In 65 of 102 counties, judges will be forced to hand count ballots that are filled in with markers, which is expected to cause delays in counting after the 7:00 PM poll closing. Judges are encouraging the use of touch screens. As a result voting is expected to take longer.
UPDATE: We're told county election officials are working to get templates to the precinct judges so they can hand cut the ballots down to size to fit into the machines.
We're working to get more information...
