StrikitRich: What went wrong? How about record turnout that overwhelmed the polls. Add to the mix a constant influx of Northern retirees that can't wait to vote themselves more goodies and I think you'll have found 99.94% of the problem
Mrtraveler01: Depends.What part of Florida are we talking about?
Doc Daneeka: What I want to know is, why do so many swing states have Republican-controlled administrations and legislatures. Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, etc. They all have Republicans controlling the administration of elections and the redistricting process.If these are all swing states (some of them with a pronounced Democratic lean) why don't Democrats control any of these states?
dofus: I live in Pasco County. I received a sample ballot in the mail well before the election. I filled in the spots at home in front of the computer so I could research what I was voting for. I went to the early voting place part way through the early voting period. Showed them my driver's license with it's magnetic strip on the back. They stuck it in a machine that validated my right to vote in that precinct and gave me a slip of paper. I took that 3 feet to the next person who exchanged it for a ballot that exactly matched the sample. Went to a booth and transferred all the spots. Stuffed the ballot in a scanner that verified one spot per question and dumped in a locked box.I suppose someone took the locked boxes to some place where another scanner that did the actual counting.Total time elapsed between parking car and leaving parking lot: about 20 minutes.I remember thinking "Wow. Florida finally got its shiat together."
