Seems the ballots are too wide for the optical scanners, and will have to be hand counted. Hmmm..............nothing suspicious about that, is there. :roll:

"Voters headed to the polls today in Illinois, where widespread balloting problems were expected to delay official results in that state’s closely watched Republican presidential primary.

About a quarter of the state’s counties were experiencing problems with their printed ballots, a Board of Elections official said, explaining they were too wide to fit in the optical scanning machines that tally the votes. Those ballots will have to be trimmed or hand-counted after polls close at 8 p.m. Eastern."
If the U.S. Congress was put in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in under six months.
