Votes counted three times (Dade County) audit shows
Voters Group: Fla. Audit Shows Problems

MIAMI (AP) -- A voters' rights group said Wednesday its audit of November's presidential election ballots in Miami-Dade County showed counting problems - and an unintentional but worrisome instance of a number of votes being counted three times.

A report released by the Miami-Dade Election Reform Coalition said during the elections there were "serious problems with policies and procedures that are supposed to protect the integrity of the ballot."

In many precincts, the number of people who signed in to cast votes was not tracked carefully, or in some cases was not compared with the actual number of ballots cast at those precincts.>>>>snip

1. Oh right, in other words Jeb Bush...
And all of his friends from dixie country got away with total purging and vote manipulation, gee why didn't we figure out all this before hand. :mad:

I wonder where all the leaders were on November 6, when this obviously first became fact.

2. This is important news




"It slid right through and nobody caught it," said Martha Mahoney, a professor at University of Miami and a group member.

Fifteen of Florida's 67 counties used touchscreen machines, including most of the heavily populated ones.

Election officials welcomed the criticism and said the machine that gave a 3-for-1 tally has been sent for testing

4. So, WHOSE votes were they? How many votes does that represent?
I'm sure that all those times people pressed Kerry and it came up Bush and they had to keep pressing Kerry, those Bush votes did NOT get voided.
