In Kentucky, it wasn't the voting machines that caused delays in reporting results in 19 counties - it was the tabulation machines, the Courier-Journal reported.

Les Fugate, a director of communications in the office of the secretary of state, said county Board of Elections offices tabulate results from each voting machine to confirm a winner. Five counties were not able to complete their counts Tuesday. They hand-counted the ballots yesterday.

"Yes, it's frustrating and we are as frustrated as anyone else," Fugate said. "The important thing is that no votes were compromised." Fugate said he doesn't know what caused the tabulator problems. He said he believes the machines just have to be fixed, not replaced.

KY Attorney General Greg Stumbo received 235 complaints between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Election Day. The most common complaint concerned electronic voting machine irregularities.

Fifty-five voters across Kentucky expressed concerns about the new voting machines, ranging from fears that votes had not been counted to allegations that votes were being switched.
