PULASKI COUNTY, AR -- Election Day in full force. There's signing in, then voting, and finally submitting the ballot.
But in ten polling places in Pulaski County, including The Willow House in North Little Rock, voters dropped their ballots into a bin since the tabulating machine didn't work.
"It's just dropped in a box and different hands before it moves to here it needs to be before it's counted and I'm just not too comfortable with that," Bridgett Moore said.
Technicians spent time replacing machines at the problem sites. They say no matter how confident they are about the machines, something still happens.
"We've followed every procedure and done everything accordingly but sometimes we do have this happen," said Elections Director Melinda Allen.
After the machine is fixed, Allen says poll workers will run the ballots voters placed in the bin. It's a procedure she says requires two workers to ensure the integrity of the vote.
"The main thing that I want voters to know is their vote will be counted. We take this very seriouslu," Allen said.
Even with the safeguards, Moore is still a bit uneasy given the high stakes of the election.
"I was excited to come and vote and not stand in super long line, but to put my ballot in a box -- I did it because that's the rule but I wasn't too happy with it," Moore said.
