Early Voting off to Rough Start (FL)    Story Here  Archive

Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland tells First Coast News that by early afternoon, 7 of the 15 machines had experienced problems with their optical scan readers. Those machines were indicating the ballot was too long. Officials measured the ballots, and they are the regulation length, 17 inches, so the manufacturer needs to address the problem. The machines were all successfully tested before early voting began.

In response to reports from other locations that electronic voting machines were reversing votes cast in the presidential election, she said, "We tested those aspects of the system in a formal way with party officials and that did not occur.

"There's no conspiracy here, absolutely none," according to Secretary of State Betty Ireland when it comes to reported early voting problems in Jackson and Putnam counties. A few voters say the touch screen machines didn't correctly record their votes. They say they voted Democrat, but the machines said Republican. County clerks in both counties say hundreds of other voters have cast ballots with no problems and the situation could be due to voter error.

Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho has reported that ballots at the Woodville and Northeast branches are not being read properly.

Missing Marker For Ballots Confusing Voters (TX)    Story Here  Archive
KSAT.Com 17 October 2008
Elections Administrator Jackie Callanen said her office has received several calls similar to Steele's. She said the county used to send a pencil with the mail-in ballots, but was forced to stop when the envelopes would get stuck in post office sorting machines. The instruction about the marker must remain on the ballot despite the lack of a pencil because some precincts still use paper ballots, she said.

Rusty Marks West Virginia Gazette 15 October 2008

A programming glitch is forcing election officials in Kanawha and 18 other counties to retest their optical scanning voting machines on the eve of the general election. Early voting begins today for the 2008 election.
