Will every vote count in Palm Beach County? (FL)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Friday, September 5, 2008
Opinion South Florida Sun-Sentinel 05 September 2008

Undervotes, overvotes. Confusion over vote totals. An election in question, 10 days later, hanging on a fraction of the ballots cast. Does any of this sound sickeningly familiar? It should, because Palm Beach County's search for 3,400 missing ballots in a tight judge's race has all the feel of the 2000 presidential election debacle, without the national spotlight. But could that be far behind?

Palm Beach County elections officials are reviewing voter registration logs this morning from the Aug. 26 primary, hoping to get a better count of how many people voted.

More than 30 workers today were sifting through thousands of ballots at the tabulation center off Belvedere Road, desperate to come closer to a conclusion in the race between Circuit Judge Richard Wennet and challenger William Abramson. But unlike last week, the workers weren't recounting votes in the controversial race. This time around, they were merely counting the number of ballots.

The ballots are missing, so start finding answers (FL)    Story Here  Archive

Palm Beach Post Editorial 03 September 2008

The first rule of election recounts should be to start - and finish - with the same number of ballots. Palm Beach County has failed that basic test. As a result, there's no way to know for sure who won the Group 23 judicial race between incumbent Richard Wennet and challenger William Abramson. As a result, there's no way to be confident about the November election. The variations between election day tallies, then a machine recount and then a hand recount are so wide as to reach a whole new level of concern for voters who thought they had seen everything in Palm Beach County.
