28777 submission Submission + - Problems reported in early Florida voting Submitted by supabeast! on Monday October 30, 2006 @03:49PM supabeast! writes: The Miami Herald is reporting that some nasty problems with early electronic voting are already popping up in Florida. Machines are repeatedly casting votes for the wrong candidate; officials blame machines that "slip out of sync" under heavy use and needing to be calibrated. Funny, I've used plenty of touchscreen ATMs and never seen one that needed calibrating. I can't wait to see how many voting machines end up out of sync on election day.
