A Clay County voting machine malfunctioned Tuesday as votes were being counted following the closing of the polls.
According to officials, the machine -- from Jackson 3 Precinct -- had approximately 40-50 votes on it and would not affect the outcomes from Tuesday's General Election.
Officials added the business who manufactured the machine, MicroVote, planned to have associates in Clay County as early as Tuesday to "extract" the votes from the machine so they could be properly counted.
"We have tried about four different ways (MicroVote) has suggested, and they will not download," Clay County Election Board member Rick Alumbaugh told The Brazil Times.
Alumbaugh added this is the first time Clay County has had problems with the voting machines, which have been used since 2003.
