Hamilton County is recovering following an early morning voting glitch.
Elections Inspector Richard Himes says the card that's used to initialize voting machines failed. He says officials were later able to validate the card which got machines up and running across the county. Himes says voters are the real issue at the polls. He says voters are the ones who make the system work and maintain the integrity of the Democratic process. He spoke from the Carmel Library where dozens of people stood in line.
Several Carmel voters say they consider voting on Election Day a privilege in addition to an American duty. They say it's important for people to vote even if others vote for candidates they themselves do not support.
