Provisional ballots were given to voters in a Los Angeles neighborhood who fell victim to a glitch in which the system erroneously showed they had already voted days ahead of the recall Election Day.
Two locations in Woodland Hills were affected over the weekend, according to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder's office, which blamed the problem on electronic poll book devices used to check in voters.
“The voters who experienced this issue were offered and provided a provisional ballot, the fail-safe option to ensure no one is turned away from voting. After troubleshooting the issue, the equipment at the locations was replaced and voting continued," the office said in a statement.
Provisional ballots are counted after election officials confirm voters are registered to vote and have not already submitted their ballot in a given election.
