ELECTIONS - Old Voting Technology

ELECTIONS - Old Voting Technology

"‘Virtually tied’ Florida races highlight challenges with voting technology" PBS NewsHour 11/13/2018

Excerpt


SUMMARY:  In Florida, extremely close vote margins have triggered machine recounts in three races, including those for governor and Senate.  As in the presidential Election of 2000, Broward County finds its election practices under intense scrutiny.  Adam Smith of the Tampa Bay Times joins Judy Woodruff to discuss the technical details and how confident Florida voters can feel about the results.

Adam Smith, The Tampa Bay Times:  Because Broward has a track record of just botching these elections, election after election after election, Palm Beach County to a lesser extent, too.
