In Woodland Hills last Sunday, some people said they were turned away because it was noted they had already voted - even though they insisted they had yet to cast a ballot.
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder's office said those people received provisional ballots, which is a "fail-safe option" to ensure only one of their votes is counted and that no one is turned away.
"After troubleshooting, the issue was resolved and the check-in equipment at the location was replaced. Voting has continued," the county registrar's office tweeted in response to the reports.
Voters who experienced this issue early yesterday were offered provisional ballots – the failsafe option to ensure no one is turned away from voting.

With just hours left to vote on Election Day, poll workers will gather all ballots at 8 p.m. when the doors close and send them off for counting.
Some experts believe turnout could be as high as 50%, which would be a high mark for a special election.
