DETROIT – Help Me Hank is tracking trouble at polling places around Metro Detroit as residents vote on Election Day.
The first problems were exposed early at Martin Luther King High School in Detroit. When the polls opened, voters said they were turned away because volunteers weren't ready to go.
Some voters were concerned about the issue, and many had to leave and return once the polling place was ready.
A precinct worker said the delay was a result of the polling place not having its equipment.
At St. Matthews on Detroit's east side, a tabulating machine was offline and two laptops couldn't be powered up. Workers were frustrated by the issues.
In Taylor, a laptop issue caused a delay, but the problem was hammered out. Some voters left, but workers believe everyone who wanted to vote was able to do so.
