'Only thing we didn't get today were locusts'

This report from Columbus reporter Allison D'Aurora:

Ten counties experienced flooding today and two reported bomb threats -- Lake and Trumbull counties, according to Patrick Gallaway, spokesman for Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.

"There was a small interruption as the threats were investigated and the 'all clear' sign could be provided from the authorities," Gallaway said.

Brunner added, "I've said the only thing we didn't get today were locusts."

Brunner said there was a "crossover problem" in Akron and elsewhere in Summit County where many Republicans and non-enrolled Ohioans voted in the Democratic primary, causing the Democratic ballots to run out quickly.

In Darke County, there were power outages, forcing its board of elections to tabulate votes using a generator. And there were reports of electronic touch-screen voting machines failing in Montgomery County.

Running out of ballots is inexcusable and shameful. The earler primaries this year had record turnout, and high democratic "crossover." Why on Earth did Ohio NOT PREPARE FOR THIS??? It's ridiculous, and even more ridiculous that I have yet to see anything about it on the national news stations.

True that.
