It's been a very busy day today. Summit Co., Ohio found that 30% of the memory cards in their ES&S optical scan machines have failed. Apparently ES&S has no quality control. Will they tell the rest of the country about these problems? It's probably too late for counties in Texas that have had major failures in their primary last Tuesday. Tarrant Co., TX reported that 100,000 votes were added to the totals on their Hart Intercivic DREs. The solution? Remove 50,000 per candidate and call it good enough. In Pinellas Co., FL voters reported that their votes on Sequoia Edge machines were being swapped to the default candidate. We've heard that one before. Of course, ES&S and Hart are both calling the elections a huge success with only a few human problems....
