Goodness… could the WEC be any more dysfunctional? This is a basic service.
An online system that allows voters to look up their polling location experienced problems Tuesday as spring primary voters went to the polls.
The problem with MyVote Wisconsin stemmed from a server that crashed and had to be taken offline, Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman Reid Magney said. The site was crashing for some visitors, while others experienced long delays as it retrieved information.
As of late Tuesday afternoon, the Elections Commission was in the process of configuring a replacement server.
The Elections Commission does have a backup polling location service, gettothepolls.com, for voters and clerks to access while they fix the problem.
“If you need to look up your polling place, continue to use the backup site,” Magney said. “If you need to find out if you’re registered to vote, go to MyVote.”
