"It was determined to be too late to re-program machines that had already been sent out to 159 election districts", Walters said.

Notices were posted at all polling stations reminding voters they may only vote once for cross-filed candidates in the same race, the release states.

The group is teaming up with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights to establish a hotline aimed at addressing questions people may have about voting.
