50 precincts in Northwest Arkansas run out of paper ballots

Posted: Updated:

BENTONVILLE (40/29 News) - Benton County election commissioners confirm to our ABC station in Northwest Arkansas that more than 50 precincts are without paper ballots and voters are only able to cast their vote electronically.

Russell J. Anzalone, secretary of the Benton County Election Commission, said they did not expect such a large turn out and did not have enough ballots printed.

Anzalone said commissioners are driving to Fort Smith to pick up paper that the ballots are printed on and will then print more ballots once the paper is back in Bentonville and distribute the ballots to polling sites.

Many callers have said people are walking away from polling sites because the lines to vote are very long.
