E-Vote Snafu in California County

Imagine this happening in Palm Beach County, Florida, in November of 2000. Without an audit trail, it's literally impossible to do a recount.

Election officials say more than 6,000 votes cast during the state's March 2 primary were missed by an electronic voting machine in Napa County. By Kim Zetter.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
