Broward’s elections supervisor accidentally mixed more than a dozen rejected ballots with nearly 200 valid ones, a circumstance that is unlikely to help Brenda Snipes push back against Republican allegations of incompetence.

 

The mistake — for which no one had a solution Friday night — was discovered after Snipes agreed to present 205 provisional ballots to the Broward County canvassing board for inspection. She had initially intended to handle the ballots administratively, but agreed to present them to the canvassing board after Republican attorneys objected.

 

“We have found no clear authority controlling the situation faced by the board,” said Broward County Attorney Andrew Meyers.

 

On Election Day, Broward County collected more than 600 provisional ballots. The vast majority were declared invalid by the county’s canvassing board judges for reasons ranging from registering to vote too late to previously voting to voting at the wrong precinct.

 

But a couple hundred provisional ballots were held in limbo. Those ballots were the result of a connectivity issue in the system that precincts use to look up voter registrations, said Pat Nesbit, the elections day operations manager for Broward County. Voters would swipe their ID and the precinct system would show they weren’t registered voters. But when staffers called the Broward elections headquarters, the voter’s registration would appear. Precinct workers had those 205 voters fill out provisional ballots.

I have no idea what Jim is talking about. He appears to be changing the subject from election day flaws in the ballot, or the protocols in Broward County, to something irrelevant. 

 

Here's what really matters and is baffling. In Broward County, the high profile Senate Race had 3.7% fewer votes cast than in the governor's race. That comes to over 26,000 fewer votes cast in the Senate race than the Governor's race.  Why or How did that happen? That's a lot more than Scott's margin of victory so far.

 

And why did this huge discrepancy happen only in Broward County?

I think all Americans are in favor of counting all legally cast votes but unfortunately all votes are not legal.  The laws in each state or county outline the procedure for legally registering to vote.  There is no reason to count votes that are cast illegally, would you agree?

Here in Florida most provisional ballots are cast by people that are not legally registered to vote.  Why should they be counted?  Investigated yes, counted only when the investigation concludes the ballot is in fact valid.

There is a huge difference between corrupt and incompetent.  With the continued problems in this county, I think she should have been held accountable years ago (whose fault was that?).  Every vote should be counted. As long as it is done by the time the new representatives need to assume office, what have they lost?
