A New Voting Standard

November 17th, 2008 by flanews

Florida’s role in the historic presidential election is now official. Members of the State Elections Canvassing Board certified the election results this morning in Tallahassee. Voting in Florida was mostly without incident when compared to the infamous 2000 Presidential Election. Secretary of State Kurt Browning said a new voting standard has been set.

“We don’t look at 2000 anymore as the benchmark. 2008’s going to be the benchmark. I jokingly tell staff, I’m not going to answer anymore of your questions if it has the word 2000 in it,” said Browning.

Governor Charlie Crist praised Browning for a job well done.

“When compared to prior elections in Florida, this one was a piece of cake. I’m very, very pleased with Secretary Browning’s leadership and the supervisors around the state, to have new machines, finally to have paper trails throughout the state for the first time in a long time and to have the election to go as smoothly as it did, I couldn’t be happier,” said Crist.

About 75 percent of all registered voters cast ballots in this election.
