By IAN URBINA New York Times 19 October 2006
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 — New electronic voting machines have arrived in Yolo County, Calif., but there is one hitch: the audio program for the visually impaired in some of them works only in Vietnamese. “Talk about panic,” said Freddy Oakley, the county’s top election official. “I’ve got gray-haired ladies as poll workers standing around looking stunned.”

WREG-TV Memphis Tennessee 19 October 2006
Go figure. Two different women early vote on the same day. Neither of them lives in Germantown, yet both get a chance to vote in the Germantown municipal elections.

And that's when her trouble began.

The Watchdog Gets Answers About Shelby Election Glitches (TN)    Story Here  Archive
WREG-TV Memphis Tennessee 19 October 2006
It's not what Shelby County Elections officials wanted to see.  A story about two people voting on the very first day of early voting who run into problems.  Big problems.  They were both given computer cards to plug into Diebold Election machines.  The cards are supposed to provide the correct ballots for each voters address.  In this case...both voters got Germantown Municipal election ballots...even though neither one of them lives in Germantown.  What we have here is the textbook definition of a problem.
