Voting problems?

At the Hamden Board of Ed building, the machine was "jammed" according to the volunteers inside the polling place. They had the voters drop the ballots inside the side slot. I don't like those machines even when they work, but at least you get to see the number on the machine go up. Anyone know if the side slot is secure, and what assurances do I have that the ballot will be either scanned at a later time or hand counted?

I saw a Chris Murphy tweet with the number for CT dem HQ - 860-560-1775 ... I am on hold with them now.

UPDATE - I called the SEEC Election Day Hotline 1-866-733-2463 (1-866-SEEC-INFO) and the person on the line said that the side slot is locked and secure and that those ballots will be counted at the end of the day either in the machine (if it is fixed) or by hand. Furthermore the procedure can be observed by members of the public provided there isn't a fire code issue of too many persons in the room.
