Metro East voting going smoothly after bumpy start in East St. Louis

O’FALLON, IL (KPLR) – There have been some voting issues in Illinois as some East St. Louis voters were turned away from voting.

It happened at the polling place inside the Vvetter Vounge Middle School.  Apparently, the tabulating machine failed.  People told Fox 2 they waited an hour for another machine to show up.

One woman says many folks gave up and left and she fears they won`t return to vote.

Everything was back to normal once the new tabulator arrived. But voters are still up in arms.
