Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Knox Co Ohio reports that they have successfully certified the votes from Nov. 6. However, in doing that certification they found that votes from three precincts (418 votes) were counted twice. The problem, as reported by the media, was that an ES&S contract employee forgot to clear one report before running another. ES&S contract employee? Why was the county not counting those ballots and doing the reports? It's bad enough that we have given over our elections to vendor's proprietary software but to actually invite the vendors in to do our work; i.e. counting the votes and doing the reporting; is inexcusable. And what does the county want to do about this problem? They are turning to the County Prosecutor for a decision on what action they should take with regards to ES&S in the future. My advice, for what it's worth, do the job you were hired for and count the people's votes. If you can't do that job then quit and put someone into the position who can do the job....
