Voting machines here have been inoperable all morning, after faulty machines were replaced with new ones that also didn’t work, an election official said. “Voters are voting on emergency ballots,’’ said Allan Roth, chairman of the Monmouth County Board of Elections. “No voter has been turned away. They’re just voting on paper ballots.’’ Software problems were discovered in the borough’s four voting machines early this morning, around 6 a.m., Roth said.
Replacement machines were delivered to the borough by about 10:30 a.m., but the replacements also weren’t working, Roth said.
The borough has about 1,050 voters, he said.
The paper ballots will have to be counted by hand, he said.
