Multiple voters are reporting issues at their polling locations. 13abc is investigating the problems.

Just minutes after the polls opened in Ohio, 13abc started receiving information about problems at polling locations throughout Lucas County.

So far, we have reports of voting machine malfunctions at Hawkins Elementary School, Rogers High School, the Sylvania Senior Center, Spencer township's neighborhood center and the polling location at Friendship Park in Point Place.

Some voters are reporting that they were told to leave and come back later when the problems are fixed.

The Lucas County Board of Election Director's assistant says the BOE is aware of the problems and they have rovers all over the city and county to help with issues.

According to the BOE, all poll workers have a process they have to follow.

If you experience voting problems, call 13abc's newsroom, send us a message on Facebook or email us at
