Taney County Clerk Donna Neeley tells HometownDailyNews.com that her office is having problems retrieving data from some of the voting precincts. Specifically, information is not transferring from the voting machine memory cards to the clerk’s computer system.
Neeley said just before 9 p.m. that if the problem is not solved within the next half-hour, her staff will have to resort to hand counting the remaining precincts.
As of 9 p.m., 5 precincts plus absentee ballots have been counted.
In addition, the county’s website is having trouble because of the volume of viewers on the election results live-stream page.
