Number-less Election Records
But Palm Beach, Florida is looking to follow in our numberless footsteps.
From the Sun-Sentinel this Weekend:
Election officials stumped by about 3,400 missing ballots
I love the quotes from the supervisors on the Board of Election Supervisors:
- Cohen said he would be "absolutely stunned and disappointed" if they were found sitting somewhere, uncounted.
Cohen said the board's job is to create a record of the recount, follow mandated steps and send up the results to Tallahassee. "Unfortunately, I don't think it's my position to make any sense out of it," he said.
- County Commissioner Addie Greene, also a board member, said she didn't notice whether numbers were filled in on the report she signed.
"I really wasn't looking for them. I didn't know they were supposed to be on there," Greene said.
- The state canvassing board has no authority to intervene, said Jennifer Krell Davis, a spokeswoman for the Florida Division of Elections. "The results are the results," she said.
