About 130 Hamilton Co. (Ind.) ballots tossed after error
http://www.indystar.com/article/20081107/LOCAL0101/8110...

At least 130 people who voted Tuesday at Carmel's University High School had their ballots tossed because of a clerical mistake.

The paper ballots, used to speed up voting because of heavy turnout in the Clay Center precinct, were discarded Tuesday evening because poll workers didn't initial them as required by state law, said Hamilton County Election Board President Tory Callaghan Castor.

... Elections Administrator Kathy Richardson said she couldn't dispatch more machines to the precinct until 4:30 p.m. because they needed to keep some available in case of mechanical problems elsewhere.

... "We had the same issue with lines four years ago," Richardson said. "It's not a new situation. Do you buy all these machines you're going to utilize only every four years?"


Anyone want to answer that? :)

2. Paper ballots,
locked boxes, hand counted, and election observers.....like every other country who cares about the election results.

3. If everyone is using paper ballots at a precinct...
...the line moves faster and the voters can all feed the ballots into just one machine.

That's how we do it in Minnesota.
