Submission + - Green Card Lottery Results Voided Due to Error (digitaltrends.com)

omnibit writes: The State Department has issued an apology claiming that due to a computer error, all results from the 2012 Diversity Immigrant "green card" lottery have now been voided. U.S. law requires that Diversity Immigrant visas be made available through a strictly random process. A computer programming error resulted in a selection that was not truly random. Each year, up to 55,000 people receive a green card through the lottery. A new draw will be conducted by July 15, 2011.
