Voter turnout was up in Langley Township, with 22,601 people casting ballots, according to the unofficial numbers released Saturday night.
Thatâ€™s just under 30 per cent, although the final percentage may change slightly.
Turnout rose from just under 26 per cent during the 2011 election, with reports of particularly heavy turnout in the Brookswood at the George Preston Recreation Centre.
Some voters were surprised to see American flags pop up on voting machines after they fed in their ballot, along with a cheery thank you message.
The flags were the first odd glitch of the day.
Township election officer Bob Wilson said the new voting machines are from Nebraska-based firm Electrical Systems and Software.
A test version of the machine sent to the Township and used in a school mock vote didnâ€™t pop up the flag. The odd glitch was only discovered when people began casting their ballots on Saturday morning, although it didnâ€™t impact the vote.
After polls closed, there were some new issues.
Three of the 13 polling stations active on election day failed to transmit their voting data back to the Langley Township hall.
Data from Lynn Fripps Elementary was brought in quickly via car.
The other two stations, Aldergrove and Wix-Brown Elementary, took longer to bring in physically after technical issues.
That resulted in a delay of a little over an hour in getting the final voting results.
