Voting Audit In Pinellas County
Pinellas County is having a voting machine problems because a computer technician didn't put enough space on the harddrive. The Voting Integrity Alliance of Tampa Bay have raised concerns about the Clearwater a paper trail. There are others who wonder if computer technicians has state-approved computer code for Pinellas Park, Palm Harbor and Largo.
"It's absurd to have an audit and not try to determine whether votes were recorded correctly to begin with" said Pamela Haengel, director of the Voting Integrity Alliance of Tampa Bay, which backs the use of paper ballots. "I think that we deserve better."
It gets even more absurd.
"There are no auditing standards for Florida elections," said David Drury. "We are on a learning curve here."
This is the first audit of it's kind since the 2000 election. Talk about progress.
