UPDATE: Johnson County elections officials dealing with computer issues

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Elections officials in Johnson County say the computer issues they were dealing with Tuesday morning when the polls opened have been resolved.

John Deeth from the Johnson County Auditor's Office says the second voter lookup computer at each site was not connecting to the main master computer at each site.

The issue did not impact any of the ballot readers at any site.

At the same time, Deeth says they are also making preparations in the event of severe weather during today's voting.

Deeth says that with the threat of severe weather in Johnson County, voters need to know that precinct officials are authorized to close polling places and seek shelter until the threat has passed. State law does not allow polling hours to be extended to make up for such closures.

The polls are open until 9 p.m. tonight.
