One of the leaders of the Jackson County Election Board says some of the delays in vote-counting Tuesday night are the result of election judges being intimidated by new computer technology. Democrat Election Director Sharon Turner Buie has told the Kansas City Star the workers were trained in June, but some forgot parts of their information by the time the election was held. The County trained 1,200 judges for Tuesday’s Primary but says it needs more judges for November and more who are computer literate. She says the average age of the election judges in Jackson County on Tuesday was 76.
