8. hand count reversed winner in Wayne Co NC in 2002

Paper Ballot Optical Scanners used.
Phill Baddour was apparent winner on election night
A noticed anomaly in vote totals leads to the examination of programming for vote counting machines.
Subsequent recount of Voter Verified Paper Ballots lead to Rep. Louis Pate being declared the definitive winner.
