Don't count on machines, either (FL)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Thursday, September 25, 2008
Joel Engelhardt Palm Beach Post 25 September 2008
Last week, it looked as if the machines were doing fine and the big problem with recounting paper ballots in Palm Beach County could be blamed on human error. But the monthlong recount in a judicial race has shown that the machines aren't perfect, either. They messed up a tiny fraction - about one-tenth of 1 percent of the ballots. Normally, election officials like to say, that wouldn't matter. Voters might argue about that. But the race between Judge Richard Wennet and challenger William Abramson was decided by a tiny fraction - less than one-tenth of 1 percent. Suddenly, imperfection matters.

Ross said voters in Roxbury wards 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 complained of optical scanners not registering votes and of being denied provisional ballots that would allow them to vote if their name did not appear on the official voter list. The Wilkerson camp charges voters were confused by last-minute changes in poll locations, something the Menino administration denies.

It was hard to tell where exactly the glitches began on primary election day. First a ballot pack got locked in a Providence school and a second one temporarily disappeared. Then the computers in Woonsocket reportedly forgot to count two polling places. In Cumberland, voters used the wrong ballot pens and had to recast their votes.

Voting system remains untested (OH)    Story Here  Archive

Joe Guillen Cleveland Plain Dealer 22 September 2008

Only six weeks from the presidential election, Cuyahoga County can't guarantee its new voting system will work because the machines haven't been fully tested. That has some people worried, given Cuyahoga's history of election-night calamities and Ohio's status as a crucial swing state in the race between presidential hopefuls Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain.

Only 35% of Isle voters turn out — a historic low (HI)    Story Here  Archive

Christie Wilson Honolulu Advertiser 21 September 2008

Office of Elections spokesman Rex Quidilla reported no major glitches during voting yesterday at Hawai'i's 339 polling stations, although some voters seemed confused with the new ballots. Quidilla also reported no problems getting voting results from the polls to the election center at the state Capitol where they were tabulated. Trouble last night with the elections office Web site had to do with reporting election results to the public and had nothing to do with actual vote-counting, he said.

Palm Beach County's missing ballots appear to be found (FL)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Friday, September 12, 2008
Mark Hollis South Florida Sun-Sentinel 12 September 2008

Investigators searching for nearly 3,500 missing ballots from the Aug. 26 election say they have located a "substantial number"— and perhaps nearly all — of the unaccounted-for ballots. Despite rumors, the ballots hadn't been mistakenly dumped in a landfill or left behind at voting precincts. Rather, they were found in the county's vote-tabulating center near West Palm Beach.
