Election Day troubles are mounting early in Hall County and across the state of Georgia. Reports of problems with voting machines at a polling precinct in Chestnut Mountain have prompted Hall County Elections Director Charlotte Sosebee to issue a reminder to voters to double-check their ballot. One local voter contacted The Times this morning about his experience with an electronic voting machine at the Chestnut Mountain Presbyterian Church. “… The machine I used at our precinct changed two of my votes and had other problems scrolling through the ballot,” resident Ryan Smith wrote in an email.
