I experienced a bit of relief today after reading that a mock presidential election in Palm Beach County resulted in perfect performance from the voting equipment. County officials tested voting equipment using 1,332 ballots marked by election workers. “The votes were tallied perfectly and quickly,” according to the Sun Sentinel article.
The Obama and McCain campaigns are keeping a close eye on the county’s voting equipment and processes should there be another close vote and they decide to challenge the election results. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen. We don’t need another election like the 2000 presidential election.
