E-Voting controversy claims Florida elections chief
Sarasota Herald-Tribune |
"Touchscreen voting machines in 11 counties have a software flaw that could make manual recounts impossible in November's presidential election, state officials said... The machines, made by Election Systems & Software of Omaha, Neb., fail to provide a consistent electronic 'event log' of voting activity... Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., has asked state Attorney General Charlie Crist to investigate whether the head of the state elections division lied under oath when he denied knowing of the computer problem before reading about it in the media . A spokeswoman for Crist said he was reviewing the request. The elections chief, Ed Kast, abruptly resigned Monday, saying he wanted a change of pace."
