The most liberal county in North Carolina reported on Tuesday that wait times for voting had increased because polling place computers were experiencing “tech problems.”

“We’ve got some tech issues @ our polling places that we’re fixing now. Please be patient with us as we iron out some kinks,” a message on Durham County’s Twitter account said soon after polls opened on election day.

While the computers are only used to check in voters, the county said that the glitch was expected to cause delays. Votes were being cast on paper ballots, which is the county’s normal practice.

“May slightly increase wait times, but everyone will still get to #vote!” one tweet noted.

As of October, Durham County reported that it had 127,901 registered Democrats, 70,664 unaffiliated voters and 29,573 registered Republicans.

Published

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is still spouting conspiracy theories about the election being "stolen" from President Donald Trump -- but according to one former Wisconsin Republican official, Johnson understands that Trump lost.

Mark Becker, the former Chairman of the Brown County Republican Party, writes at The Bulwark that he had a conversation with Johnson after the election in which the senator acknowledged Trump's defeat.

However, Johnson said that he was loath to admit it publicly because of the strong support the president had received from Wisconsin GOP voters, despite the fact that the president narrowly lost the state this year.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough mocked Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for demanding proof of something that doesn't exist.

"The man Guinness Book of World Records has called the dumbest senator to ever be sworn in in this constitutional republic," Scarborough said. "I'm speaking, of course, of Ron Johnson, who said that William Barr must show his evidence that he has no evidence."
