Viral post claims precinct in Allen West race had 900 ballots cast but only 7 registered voters
A Palm Beach Post article paraphrased West campaign manager Tim Edson saying that, "Preliminary totals showed 900 voters cast ballots in Precinct 93, where only seven voters are registered." The same claim was picked up by people on Facebook.
It's not true.
A machine that had the label of Precinct 93 was actually counting votes from another precinct. In the end, only six people voted in Precinct 93, which has seven total voters.
We rate this claim False.

3. Did the 6 voters still have to fill out a 10 page ballot?
