200 election workers refusing(?) to work due to new voting machines

Via NewsNet5

The polls are open throughout Ohio for residents to cast their votes on various issues and candidates.

NewsChannel5 reported that about 200 election workers will not work the polls because they were confused over the new voting machine.

A resident attempting to cast her vote at Woodberry Elementary School in Shaker Heights left extremely frustrated after growing confused over the machine.

NewsChannel5 is On Your Side with helpful information on how to use the new machine.

"Refusing" is probably the wrong word. I heard on the news (radio, I think) a week or so ago that about 200 people signed up to be poll workers for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections had quit because they didn't want to work with the new voting machines. (Sorry, I'm working from memory here, so I can't provide a cite.) Based on the timing, I'd say that "refused" would be the more appropriate word. Because there are about 6000 poll workers, 3% attrition doesn't sound like a big deal to me.
