2017 Letters to the editor stock

When I went to vote Tuesday morning at my polling place in the Hammond school referendum, I was told I could not vote. I was informed the "printer was offline."

I was there about 6:05 a.m. on my way to work. I was told a technician was coming to fix it but no time table.

I was on my way to work in Crown Point at the Government Complex, and had to leave. I also was told there are no paper ballots, and I was out of luck.

I went straight to the voter registration office when I got to work and was told there was nothing I could do.

You would think that all problems would be solved before they open the polls. I work 12-hour shifts, and this caused me to miss my opportunity to vote.

Mark Altomere, Hammond
