PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL -- Are the 3,478 missing ballots inside of a landfill?

Were they inadvertently thrown out by elections officials who thought they were trash?

NewsChannel 5 has exclusively learned that is the leading theory on officials' minds.


The article doesnt say when the votes were cast, so I dont know what the votes were cast for, but it seems that Fl is already starting to screw up elections.
Are they ever going to get it right?

A few more voting boondoggles in Florida and they'll have me convinced that Floridians are as inept at running elections as New Mexico is.

@Foxfyre,
are you honestly saying you prefer Pierce? I'd rather vote for a pig with lip-stick than pierce.

@dyslexia,
If I was Udall, I would be offended to be called a pig with lipstick.

Now here comes another Florida foulup...

http://foolocracy.com/2008/09/record-13-presidential-candidates-on-florida-ballot-let-the-confusion-begin/

Quote:
Florida will have a record 13 Presidential candidates on the ballot for this year. Yes, the state of the hanging chad, penalized convention delegations and Democrats who almost failed to put up an Electoral College slate this year for Obama, have now cluttered the ballot as never before. It is as if Florida is priming itself for another fiasco.

One more thing, just so it does not get to easy to vote, an empty slot is open for Gary Nettles and Brad Krones, certified as write-in candidates. Here is the ballot listing:

John McCain and Sarah Palin, Republican

Barack Obama and Joe Biden, Democrat

Gloria La Riva and Eugene Puryear, Party for Socialism and Liberation - Florida

Chuck Baldwin and Darrell Castle, Constitution Party of Florida

Gene Amondson and Leroy Pletten, Prohibition Party

Bob Barr and Wayne A. Root, Libertarian

Thomas Robert Stevens and Alden Link, Objectivist Party

James Harris and Alyson Kennedy, Florida Socialist Workers Party

Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente, Green Party

Alan Keyes and Brian Rohrbough, America’s Independent Party

Ralph Nader and Matt Gonzalez , Ecology Party of Florida

Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander, Socialist Party of Florida

Charles Jay and John Wayne Smith, Boston Tea Party/Personal Choice Party

The previous record was 10 Presidential candidates in 2000. We know what happened that year. Now the ballot is even more complicated. Somehow, I bet we have not heard the last of this.


So, does anyone really think that Florida will get it right this time?
