Computer Glitch Found in Franklin County Ballot-Counting

(Brookville) - A recount prompted by a computer glitch in Franklin County's voting machines has given a Democrat enough votes to bump a Republican from victory in a county council race.

The glitch in the Fidlar Election Company optical vote-scanning system had recorded straight-Democratic Party votes for Libertarians.

When the votes were recounted by hand last night, Democrat Carroll Lanning leaped from fifth to third in the three-seat council race and Republican Roy Hall fell to fifth.

Fidlar confirmed the glitch, but calls it an isolated incident. But the company is also checking the programming of its equipment in nine other Indiana counties.

Besides Franklin, those counties are: Benton, Elkhart, Fulton, LaGrange, Newton, Ripley, Scott, Steuben, Switzerland.
