Voters in Alabama, Colorado, Georgia and Texas flooded voter hotlines to complain about dysfunctional polling booths and ballots in Republican primaries. Callers to an Austin radio station complained of machines switching their vote for Trump to Rubio.
By lunchtime on Super Tuesday, Election Protection, a nonpartisan coalition of groups that run election-day hotlines, said their hotline has received more than 1,000 calls. The majority of calls came from Alabama, Georgia and Texas.
Election Protection said voters in Georgia reported long lines in Fulton and Gwinnett counties due to poll books malfunctioning. At the Inman Middle School precinct in Fulton County, only one out of three poll books were reported to be working leaving 80 to 100 people waiting in line.
Austin radio station KLBJ received around half a dozen complaints that Texan machines had changed their votes, mostly from Donald Trump to Florida Senator Marco Rubio, according to Raw Story.
