Palm Beach County Voting Fiasco

September 10th, 2008 by flanews

A judicial candidate who may or may not have won his primary in Palm Beach County is asking the Governor to call a special election. His request comes after a recount produced 3,500 fewer votes than the original tally. A Tallahassee court is slated to hear the case. A spokesman for the Governor says theyll wait until the judge rules before considering a special election. The main concern is with voters statewide who expect a tight Presidential race, but want assurance a 2000 type fiasco wont happen this year. Secretary of State Spokeswoman Jennifer Davis said her office will send people to help at Palm Beach County polling sites on Election Day.

Everything in Palm Beach worked fine. All processes worked fine up through election day. Where there seemed to be an issue was with ballot counting once those ballots came back into the supervisors office for the recount. Were working very closely with Palm Beach County to make sure the right procedures are in place to make sure those issues dont happen again, said Davis.

There are more than 800,000 registered voters in Palm Beach County.
