Hundreds of Pinellas voters get robocall from supervisor of elections saying Election Day is
ST. PETERSBURG — An hour after polls opened Tuesday morning, the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office mistakenly placed hundreds — possibly thousands — of automatic calls to voters instructing them that they had until 7 p.m. Wednesday to vote.
But that is wrong. Polls close at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Any ballots turned in after that time won't be accepted.
The calls went out between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. because of a glitch with the SOE's phone system. Calls were made Monday alerting voters who had requested mail ballots but had not returned them that they had until 7 p.m. "tomorrow" to get them turned in.
About 12,000 calls, however, didn't get through, said SOE spokeswoman Nancy Whitlock. They were stored in a queue and recycled Tuesday morning. The "tomorrow" in the message meant for Monday was incorrect when it was delivered.

1. Handcuff them and take them to a safe location until after the election.
Anyway you look at it they are too dangerous to leave in society.
Everyone sane knows you don't issue instructions with tomorrow in them without also clarifying the date (e.g. "tomorrow, November 6, 2012".)
How can so many mistakes be an accident. And how can a group that keeps making the same type accidents remain in charge.
Handcuff them and work it out later.
