Hoosiers in Hamilton County trying to vote when the polls opened early Tuesday experienced problems with long lines and machines that weren't working.

Hamilton County Election Administrator Kathy Richardson said workers at each of the 203 precincts in Hamilton County had to call in and get instructions from the election office on how to reset the machines, which caused a nearly 30 minute delay.

Some precincts started using paper ballots, and then resumed electronic voting when the machines were working again.

The delay caused voter lines to back up at many of the polling sites

Richardson asked voters to be patient as officials worked to solve the problems.
