BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The director of Burleigh County Emergency Management says some voters were delayed 20 minutes on Tuesday morning as polling locations experienced computer check-in issues.

The issue impacted eight of 18 polling stations in the county.

The computer check-in process assists election workers to distribute the appropriate ballots to voters at the right polling location.

Officials say a regular update “affected the configuration of poll pads” but the issue was resolved in 20 minutes.

Election officials add that the computer check-in process does not affect the way ballots are cast, counted and tabulated.

Polls will close at 7 p.m. local time Tuesday.
