Most reports are saying that the majority of voting problems are in Florida.

Now here's a question:

When you had the largest voting fiasco in US History, and you have FOUR YEARS to fix it, why are there still so many #@%$! problems?????!!!!


Because a Bush is running the show down there.

Hi. My name is Albaby, and I'm a Florida resident. It's been four years since I last voted for President.

"Hi, Albaby!"

Actually, most of the more significant problems that have occurred so far have been at the local (ie. County) level. While election certification and administration of state election law is handled by the Florida Secretary of State, much of the implementation is conducted by locally-elected or -appointed Elections Supervisors. Their actions are hardly attributable to the Governor or his appointees.

Most of the early snafus are the result of local foul-ups. The worst appears to have been in Broward County, where thousands of absentee ballots were brought to the Post Office on Saturday afternoon, with the wishful expectation that they might be delivered and returned by Election Day. Broward County is one of the most Democratic counties in the state, and their elections official is a Dem.
