CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Hamilton County election officials pledged at a special meeting Tuesday to correct voting problems before the next election. 

While more than 198,000 voters cast their ballots last week, in some cases voters who were properly registered were told they were not. 

Those voters were forced to cast a provisional ballot instead of a regular ballot, all of which election officials say will be counted. 

The state's elections chief wants to now how a new electronic check-in system for voters was implemented in Hamilton County after some people experienced problems on Election Day.

Secretary of State Jon Husted has instructed the Hamilton County Board of Elections to conduct a review into election preparations. He wants a report by Dec. 11. 

The county's elections director had blamed a learning curve for poll workers for problems finding registered voters with e-pollbooks.

Other state and local officials have called for reviews.

A judge extended voting on Election Day by 90 minutes in Hamilton County.

Both sides say they hope these issues can be ironed out before the March primary and general election a year from now.
