DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Balky machines that threatened to disrupt voting at a Dubuque church have been repaired.

The Dubuque Telegraph-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/SRgH9s) that the machines broke down soon after the Dubuque County polling station opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday at St. Columbkille Catholic Church.

Voters who couldn't wait for the repairs filled out their ballots by hand and gave them to poll workers.

The newspaper says the repairs were completed and the machines were back in operation by around 7:45 a.m.

Spokesman Chad Olsen for the Iowa Secretary of State's Office also reported that Story County had problems with electronic poll books that are used to check in voters. He says poll workers reverted to paper copies, so voting delays were minimized.
