Yavapai County has delay in voting results

PHOENIX - A technical glitch caused a delay in reporting of election results in Yavapai County Tuesday night, according to the Secretary of State’s Office.

Working with new election equipment, Yavapai County experienced technical difficulties properly exporting the results file out of its system.

Yavapai County worked through the night and exported a results file at approximately 5:40 a.m. Wednesday.

The data was then successfully uploaded into the state election night reporting system without difficulty, according to Secretary of State spokeswoman Kim Crawford.

Crawford said Yavapai County approved this election equipment for experimental use in May 2014.

The new election system, Unisyn OpenElect, is only used in Yavapai County and was not certified by the state, Crawford said. She said the Secretary of State’s Office certifies an end-to-end voting system.

Meantime, Cochise County also experienced technical difficulties with tabulation of Tuesday's results that will cause a revision of the primary night results and possibly changing the outcome of some races, Crawford said.
