LEE COUNTY, Fla.- After yesterday's long lines at the polling places, many have been asking, "Why not just shift around scanning machines?"
Each precinct has their own type of ballot style and each scanner is programmed to a specific precinct.
Many voters where asking to get more scanners, but the election officials fear voting information will be lost is they re-program scanners.
Some voting locations across the area only had one scanner and people waiting for 5 hours to cast their ballot.
"There is no excuse really for only having one machine that only handles about 60 people an hour," said voter Ritchie Kowlaeski.
Election supervisor Sharon Harrington is under fire for not planning enough.
"She should not be in that job if she cant figure out how many she needs to run a station," said voter Harvey Grace.
