KANSAS CITY, Missouri — If you voted in yesterday’s Primary Election, there was a decent chance you had to wait in line. Something most people didn’t expect to happen.

Residents took to social media to complain about faulty machines and long lines during Missouri’s March 15 Primary Election. With technology glitches, residents said they were waiting at some polling places up to 45 minutes.

In Jackson County, it wasn’t until nearly midnight of Wednesday, March 16, that all 186 precincts were able to report results with 100 percent accounted for. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders received just over 50 percent of the vote compared to Hilary Clinton’s 48 percent. For Republicans, Ted Cruz edged pasted Donald Trump, 41 to 38 percent, respectively. In total, over 97,000 votes were cast in Jackson County.

Statewide, races are much tighter. With still only 99 percent of precincts reporting (as of 10 a.m. Wednesday), Trump holds a slim lead over Cruz. The same can be said for the Democratic side, as Clinton leads Sanders by just a few percentage points. The Northeast News will update these results as they come in.
