In person-voting on Sunday appeared to be going more smoothly in Riverside County a day after local voters encountered some unexpected delays.
“It is clear goings right now,” said Wanda Wilders, a poll worker at the Arlington Library in Riverside.
As of 10 a.m. Sunday all 130 voter assistance centers were back to normal and processing ballots without delays.
Issues with software used by all voting centers in Riverside County had been fixed overnight, Irving Rivera, an assistant supervisor, told KTLA. The combination of broadband issues and the number of voters slowed down check-ins, he said.
The location could now process voters in less than 10 minutes, Rivera said.
“We have been getting a lot of voters so that has caused a little delay, which we saw yesterday. But other than, that today we’ve been getting them in and out as fast as we can,” Rivera added.

Director National Intelligence John Ratcliffe warns that Iran and Russia are attempting to undermine confidence in the 2020 election.
Russian hackers have targeted an array of U.S. computer systems, including aviation and local government networks where intrusions were detected on some systems containing election-related material, federal officials said Thursday.
While officials acknowledged that the activity posed “some risk to elections information housed on (state and local government) networks,” there is “no evidence to date that the integrity of election data has been compromised,” according to an alert issued by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.
Christopher Krebs, director of DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, described the activity Thursday has a “broad scanning” effort by the Russians that had not interfered with actual voting.
The bulletin comes a day after U.S. intelligence officials warned that Iran and Russia had obtained U.S. voter registration information in an

Virginia’s voter registration website went down on Tuesday, the final day for people in the state to register ahead of Election Day. The website was down until the early afternoon for more than five and a half hours.
“Due to a network outage, the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable,” the Virginia Department of Elections wrote on its site Tuesday morning.
Officials tweeted that a “fiber cut” in Chester, near the Commonwealth Enterprise Solutions Center, impacted connectivity for multiple state agencies. The cut cable, which appeared to be an accident, affected both the voting portal and the registrar’s offices.
“We are working with our network providers to restore service as quickly as possible,” the department said. “Please check back later for your online voter registration or absentee needs.”
