WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Board of Election offices from around the state were experiencing errors reporting their numbers to the state Tuesday night for the Primary Elections.

Marvin McFadden with the New Hanover County Board of Elections said the state is having trouble with its system which is a new software program.

The numbers the state is reporting on its website are on some kind of delay according to McFadden.

Similar issues have been reported in other counties, including Brunswick and Mecklenburg Counties.
