this bill preempts to the state all matters pertaining to elections. The result is that it preempts stricter election procedures adopted in some counties that protect the voting rights of Florida's citizens even where not in conflict with state law.

OH: Reason for election machine glitch found, officials expect things to be OK for the primary*http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2010/05/reason_for_election_machine_gl.html
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Six percent of the county's vote-counting scanner machines failed a pre-election test, but the elections chief said the board has enough backup machines for the Tuesday primary and is confident no votes will be lost if machines freeze up on election day.

All told, 89 of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections' 1,200 machines powered down and then froze during a specific test done to ensure the optical scanners were reading paper ballots correctly.

Voting machine manufacturer Election Systems & Software, Inc. said it believes the problem has to do with the scanner's software. And they believe they have a coding update that will fix it.
