RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina’s elections board says it’s received a smattering of complaints about electronic voting machines getting things wrong, but nothing outside the norm for a presidential election year.

State Board of Elections spokesman Pat Gannon said Tuesday the complaints involve touch-screen machines used for early voting in less than a third of the state’s 100 counties and by even fewer on election day.

The North Carolina NAACP had reports from five counties that the machines wrongly identified a voter’s choice, but the voters were able to correct their ballots before casting them. The organization said it happened in Cumberland, New Hanover, Iredell, Mecklenburg, and Catawba counties.

Cumberland County elections director Terri Robertson says five people told her machines initially displayed a wrong vote, but all corrected their ballots after reviewing them.
