Blame game: It's on (KY)    Story Here  Archive
Patrick Crowley and Cindy Schroeder Cincinnati Enquirer 09 November 2008

The first whiff of trouble with some of Kenton County's voting machines came just minutes after the polls opened at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Election Day. Kenton County Clerk Rodney Eldridge took a call from a poll worker; there appeared to be a problem with straight-ticket voting on the so-called handicapped machines, voting devices called E-slate that were maintained by Lexington-based Harp Election Services.

Programming source of machine error (KS)    Story Here  Archive
KEVIN FLAHERTY The Morning Sun 08 November 2008
Crawford County Clerk Don Pyle told Crawford County Commissioners Friday morning about an error in reading votes that could affect the outcome of the already tight Crawford County Attorney’s race.
The error came from a programming glitch in the card that tells the machines what to do. In this specific case, the card didn’t ask a scanner used at Countryside Christian Church — affecting Pittsburg Ward Four, precincts one, two and six — to follow sequencing numbers on the bottom of the ballot.

Revised results give Democrats sweep in county board race (NC)    Story Here  Archive
Chris Dailey Tryon Daily Bulletin 06 November 2008
Ted Owens is out and Ray Gasperson is in, and the Democrats now have all five seats on the Polk County Board of Commissioners. That’s the result of revised election results issued Wednesday morning for the county board race after an apparent “glitch” was discovered in the process for reporting results. Becky Kennedy, chair of the county board of elections, says the county asked Karen Brinson, the district elections technician for the state, to visit Polk County yesterday to assess the problem. Brinson reportedly rebooted the computer and proper functioning was restored. Kennedy says a setting on the computer used to properly report results was possibly "clicked or unclicked," and it's undetermined how or why. She says there is no evidence of any problem with the accuracy of the voting machines in the county or anywhere else in the state, and the change in the report setting on the computer could have resulted simply from a power surge.

MANATEE COUNTY - Florida's touch-screen voting systems might be history, but elections officials still depend on computer software to tally the paper ballots.
