Error Discovered on Georgia Touchscreens in U.S. Senate Race

Georgia election officials say they found a programming error on the state's voting touchscreens that caused a column of candidates in the U.S. Senate special election to vanish when when a user switches between screens.

"Logic and accuracy testing discovered an issue where if a user flips back and forth multiple times between the Senate special election and the previous race, which is not typical, the second column would, in rare occasions, not appear," Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs says.

The flaw would have impacted candidates sorted alphabetically. Remedial action requires reprogramming Georgia's 30,000 new touchscreens, about 14 days before in-person early voting starts Oct. 12.
