Florida Voting Problems

Florida Voting Problems The state of Florida is having trouble managing a simple election, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

On Florida Primary day, voters are reporting problems across Central Florida from Daytona Beach to Hunter’s Creek. Among the precincts experiencing glitches was one in Orange County where voters were told by poll workers early on there was no Democratic primary today.

Phil Marjason said poll workers at precinct 145 in Hunter’s Creek would not give him a Democratic ballot. “I thought it was plain wrong,” he said. “We need to get Florida straightened out.”

Somehow, I’m not surprised.

    I used to think Florida was the smart one of the southern states. Now I know they’re all retards.

    I have yet to see a re-count where the vote totals don’t change. Voting just always has some problems. The question is if we see them (and did they impact the result).

    One precinct of poorly informed poll workers does not a scandal make any more than the NH precinct that left out the Ron Paul votes due to clerical error.

    If he isn’t a registered Democrat,sorry Charlie, no ballot for you. Florida does not have an open primary.

    I am registered independent and the only thing I could vote on was the property tax amendment.
