An isolated incident.
A power surge.
A machine malfunction.
The server went down.
An unfortunate programming bug.
It won't happen again.

It was a GLICH.

Just a GLICH. Like in Volusia County, FL when 16,022 Gore votes were dropped and spread around to third party candidates, 10,000 of them to the SOCIALIST candidiate.

Dan Rather called it a "computer glich" at the time.
Then he called Florida for Bush.

The rest is history.

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
