Poll Problems Cropping Up In Spots Around United States

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sporadic problems are being reported today at polling places around the country.
    
One voting machine in Pennsylvania lit up for Mitt Romney when a voter pressed the button for President Barack Obama. The machine was recalibrated. In Philadelphia, dozens of Republican inspectors were blocked from polling places, prompting party officials to obtain a court order providing them access in the heavily Democratic city.
    
Ohio also saw a court battle -- this one involving a lawsuit claiming the state-installed voting software could allow people unconnected to official election boards to manipulate ballots. A judge dismissed a lawsuit seeking to stop the software's use.
    
In Florida, a robocall glitch recycled calls intended for yesterday -- telling voters they had until "7 p.m. tomorrow" to vote.
