Voting machines used in Goose Creek elections back online

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - City officials say voting machines being used in Goose Creek elections are back online.

An official with the Berkeley County board of voter registration said the machines were malfunctioning earlier and paper ballots were being used as crews worked to solve the issue.

No tampering is believed to have taken place, according to Berkeley County board of voter registration director Adam Hammons.

This morning the polling place opened properly and an error came up on the machine with the first voter.

The state election commission has also been called. Ballots will take an estimated 45 minutes to an hour to count Tuesday night. Hammons said they will do a "deep dive" after the election.
