Drivers' license facilities across Illinois are up and running again this morning, following a computer glitch that disrupted services much of Wednesday.
Driver's license facilities operated old-school yesterday, using paper forms whenever possible, because their computers were down.
Turns out the problem was like so many others in life: miscommunication.
The mainframe computer in Springfield "wasn't properly communicating with and recording data entered from the computer terminals at the facilities," said Sec. of State spokesman Henry Haupt.
