"I haven't been able to get a straight answer from Premier, but I will by the end of the night," he said. "I expect them to fix this issue. We've paid a lot of money. My staff has done a great job.'

A glitch with the optical scanning machines used Tuesday night had the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections busy Wednesday. When workers tried to count absentee ballots on election night, the optical scan machines would not communicate with the server.  So more than 10,000 absentee ballots had to be hand-counted one-by-one starting Wednesday morning, and they're still counting them late Wednesday.

Faulkner County Justice of the Peace Jimmy Bryant requested some weeks ago that Arkansas Secretary of State Charlie Daniels seek more information concerning the problematic May 20 election.
