This is not good. According to multiple reports on Twitter, the voting system, known as SCORE, was down in some parts of the state for a little while, although it appears to be back now.
Our voter registration system went down 29 minutes, from 2:47 p.m. to 3:16 p.m. It is back up now. We are investigating. #copolitics

What that meant was that clerks could not process mail-in ballots and in-person voters were being asked to fill out provisional ballots. This could have been a huge snafu in an important swing state if it wasn’t resolved quickly.
MEDIA: With SCORE down, clerks can't process mail ballots; in person voters must vote provisional. #copolitics
