From Hosemann's office:
Issues reported to the Office:
- Hinds County: Terry Volunteer Fire Department: Long lines reported. Voters are walking far distances to cast their ballot. Hinds County Sheriff’s Department is on site to direct traffic.
- Stone County: One precinct is without power; voting machines are working from battery powered devices.
- Scott County: Issue where some machines were either not plugged in and another was knocked over. A county tech was dispatched to the location and the machines were up and running by 7:36 am.
- Counties with printers attached to the voting machines will only show a “D” or an “R” under the presidential race, due to a lack of character space on the printer tapes on the machines. Thirty-eight (38) of the 77 counties which use voting machines have received preclearance from the Department of Justice to remove the printers from the machines. Those counties include: Adams, Alcorn, Amite, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Clay, Copiah, Forrest, George, Grenada, Hancock, Harrison, Itawamba, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Jones, Lawrence, Lincoln, Lowndes, Madison, Marion, Monroe, Neshoba, Oktibbeha, Panola, Pearl River, Perry, Prentiss, Simpson, Smith, Stone, Sunflower, Tallahatchie, Union, Wayne, Winston, Yazoo.
