Voters southwest of Atlanta waited in long lines on June 9 to cast their ballots in Georgia’s primary amid reports of technical glitches with voting machines in the state.
This footage was taken outside Wolf Creek Library, outside Atlanta. “The line is around the parking lot and down the street,” wrote Hoyt Nunnally III in a note on Facebook. “But we’re not going anywhere.”
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported technical issues with voting machines in parts of Atlanta.
The primary ballots comprised races for president and the US Senate and House, as well as local races such as state assembly representatives and sheriffs. Polls were open from 7 am to 7 pm.
The primary was the first time Georgia employed a new voting system, which featured touchscreens and printed-paper ballots as backups. Credit: Hoyt Nunnally III via Storyful
