Internet outage reported at Osceola County Supervisor of Elections while counting ballots

All results have been counted at the Osceola Supervisor of Elections office, despite the internet going down earlier in the evening.

The Supervisor of Elections said she called Spectrum immediately. She was told fiber optic cables were cut by a construction crew. Charter Communications says it was unrelated to Spectrum.

Mary Jane Arrington says all precincts had to drive in the ballot machines to upload in the office. She says they were able to get early voting and mail ballots in right away. The precincts were all counted by 11:30 p.m.

LIVE RESULTS: General Election 2020 results 

She said office workers manually put the results in to upload without wifi.

Charter Communications released this statement regarding the WIFI: 

"The information I have at this time is that a construction crew (unrelated to Spectrum) cut a 92 count Spectrum fiber line that serves the area where the Supervisor of Elections office is for Osceola County. Spectrum is the Internet provider for Osceola County Supervisor of elections office.

"I do not have an exact time that the cut occurred but it was earlier this evening. The repairs are underway and expected to take up to 2 hours. The fiber cut affects other area customers and is not limited to the Supervisor of Elections office."
