Editorial - We Deserve Better (AR)    Story Here  Archive

The Daily Citizen 22 May 2008
Itís not easy being a voter these days. The closure of rural voting sites, newfangled election devices, growing voter apathy and other factors can cause the public as a whole to wonder if casting a ballot is even worth the hassle. As if thatís not enough of a reason to discourage voters, now comes news of the complete disaster that was the May Primary election in White County Tuesday night.

Primary election results were delayed and disputed Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning after no voting machines functioned properly at any of the 32 White County voting sites Tuesday. By late Wednesday night, a set of revised unofficial vote totals revealed Mark Derrick - deemed the winner earlier Wednesday - had actually lost to Tom Hughes in the race for circuit judge, district 17. A programming error with time settings caused a domino effect of further complications, names were left off ballots and a vote-counting machine failed. Candidates, citizens and supporters waited in the second floor courtroom of the White County courthouse until 1 a.m. to get a hard copy of the unofficial results. No preliminary results were announced during the night and little if any explanations were provided as to the delay.

According to City Manager Mike Ahrens, the mistake was made by Hart InterCivics who programmed the machine for the election, however, did not program it so that only District 1 voters could vote in that particular election. As it turns out, although only 41 residents of District 1 were signed in to vote, the number of combined votes received by the District 1 candidates was 198. Some 365 voters cast ballots in the city-wide election.

Recount affirms: Abington approves another override (MA)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Sunday, May 18, 2008
Robert Carroll The Boston Globe 18 May 2008
When a machine count of the override vote held on April 26 showed a one-vote differential, Walnut Street resident Daniel McDonnell petitioned for a recount, quickly gathering the required 10 signatures from each of the town's four electoral precincts. Abington uses optical-scan machines to count ballot votes. Voters are required to mark their choices by using pencils to darken small circles. "These optical-vote machines carry a 3 percent margin of error," said McDonnell, who opposed the override. "That alone calls for a recount."
