Teton County runs low on ballots
Voter turnout in Teton County has been much higher than expected. So high that one poll has already run out of ballots.
Teton County Clerk Sherry Daigle says she stocked the polls with enough ballots to accommodate 105-percent of registered voters there. But by mid-afternoon, at least half of all precincts were getting ready to open – or had already dug into – their last pack of 100 ballots.
One polling station in Cottonwood Park has completely run out of the M100 paper ballots that run through tabulators. Daigle says they’ve begun distributing smaller paper ballots that will later be counted by hand.
Similar ballots have be distributed to other precincts as a back-up. Daigle hopes they’ll be enough to last until the polls close at 7 p.m.
