Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org A friend and fellow Election Integrity activist and Florida voter reminded me that in this space yesterday I neglected to mention that the two counties I discussed, Indian River and Palm Beach, were the only two customers in the state for Sequoia Voting Systems. Now, I'm not saying that Sequoia is to blame for the problems of the past week. Unlike Sequoia I don't set blame until I have evidence to back it up. Besides the Indian River plan of testing a modem down-load system in the middle of a real election was bone-headed and seems to be the fault of the administrators. On the other hand the situation is Palm Beach County is still up in the air. The media can't seem to get all of the facts correct and that is probably the fault of the county and probably the media representatives who just don't know enough to ask the right questions like; what happened to over 3,000 ballots? Were they physically lost? Is anyone trying to find them? Or, is the whole problem a difference in how the poll site optical scans work as compared to the central optical scan machines? Hopefully we will get a true accounting for this problem. After all, only 12% of the registered voters turned-out for the primary last week; what is going to happen when there is a 60 to 70% turnout? I shudder to imagine....
