SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- It's the third year for voters using the "Image Cast" system to vote across New York. The switchover brought a number of new problems for board of elections to deal with. Now, they seem to be on the decline.
While voters are still getting used to the system and still have a number of questions, the people staffing polling places seem to be catching on.
“They're starting to get it. There's still a handful of them that don't get it. And we've got to look at replacing some of them. After 3 years, you should understand how to...we've taught you how to open this machine. You should get it,” said Onondaga County Elections Commissioner Edward Ryan.
Ryan says so far in 2011, reported problems with the new machines have been minimal.
