Voting Machine Mess-up

Mercer County, Pennsylvania. November, 2004. Unilect.
DRE records 83% blank presidential votes.

One machine recorded 51 votes for president out of 289 ballots cast. The county's Web site reports that 51,818 people cast ballots but 47,768 ballots were recorded in the presidential race, including 61 write-ins. About 4,000 votes could not be accounted for.*

[Democratic Party Chairman Bob] Lark said he finds it difficult to believe that only 51 people out of the 289 who voted actually cast a ballot in the presidential race.

electronic voting is not reliable, accurate, or secure.
