Election results in Mercer County were significantly delayed Tuesday due to two problems with voting equipment, according to board of elections director Deb Sneddon.

Final numbers for Celina were available about 1 a.m.; however, it was nearly 2:30 a.m. until final voting results for all 38 precincts in the county were posted. [More]
