KSL Newsradio's Andrew Adams reportingIt's business as usual right now at the voting precinct at Highland High. But the voting rush hit right at 7:00 A.M. only one of seven machines was up and running, according to election official Lohree Neilsen.

"Somebody got real nervous about it and started complaining," she said.

"I had about 30 calls [about the difficulties] in about 30 minutes," said District 28 Republican challenger Thomas Wright.

"People go out and they're not able to vote, obviously that's a concern to any candidate," he said.

Especially with such a tight state House race at stake. Both Wright and Democratic incumbent Roz McGee hope the voters that had to leave will return.

"House District 28 voters are hearty, committed voters," said McGee.

"We'll get our voters back out," said Wright.
