@Rooseveltisland No, and no one was even looking at them. I asked what happens if the last one broke and they "didn't want to think about it— Ryan Ashley (@Rashley02) November 8, 2016

The NYC Board of Elections replies that a technician is on the way to fix the scanning machines and that all votes will be counted..@BOENYC hearing all machines are down on @Rooseveltisland, so they're putting them in a box to scan later. Can you send someone to fix?— Kim Moscaritolo (@kimmosc) November 8, 2016
