It seems that officials in Arkansas are headed for the "worst election administration" award for the year. They clearly ignored scores of voters in the primary who went to the polls to vote but found that there was no paper ballots left to vote on so they were sent home without voting. Essentially they were disenfranchised. All of this on the top of a complete failure by ES&S to support their elections. Now, just one week after the state's primary election they are beginning early voting for their run-off elections. Some counties just finished counting from the primary. There has been no time for ballot programming, ballot printing, etc. How could they have ignored the fact that it takes time to get ready for an election? This state has to be at or near the top of any list of the worst states for elections administration. I feel sorry for the local elections officials who are under the gun and have no support from the state or the state's choice of voting machines....
