Arizona Maricopa County Board of Supervisor’s Bill Gates, says that 20% of Voting Centers are having issues with their tabulators. Specifically he said:
We’ve got about 20% of the locations out there where there’s an issue with the tabulator, where some of the ballots that after people have voted them, they try to run them through the tabulator, and they’re not going through.
He did however claim there is a redundancy in place to take care of this issue.
… and we also have a redundancy in place. If you can’t put the ballot in the tabulator, then you can simply place it here where (you see the number three?) and this is a secure box where those ballots will be kept for later this evening where we will bring them in here to central count to tabulate them.
