Pulaski Co. investigates voting concern in Maumelle


MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) -"I got a call this morning," Connie Beckham explained, "Who said that something has gone awry."

"The claim that was made was that what's displaying on the screen is different from what's on the paper trail," Bryan Poe began.

Poe is the director of elections in Pulaski County and said the voter who reported the mishap casted her ballot at the Jess Odom Community Center in Maumelle. Poe decided to test the voting machines himself and show how it works. He demonstrates saying, "I'm just going to press that. You see there's a little checkmark. Then you can see down here where Nathan LaFrance's name printed on the paper."

Poe said he also reached out to the Secretary of State's office and is confident there was no mishap. He said, "They have assured me that what was reported cannot happen. It is impossible. It cannot happen."
