Election officials have confirmed 24 out of 140 polling places on the island of Oahu ran out of paper ballots on Election Day.

The number was originally reported as five polling places, but by the day after the election, that number had increased by nearly five times.

With just one electronic voting machine at each location on Nov. 6, only about 10 voters per hour could be accommodated. Others waited in line for sometimes more than hour for additional paper ballots to arrive.
