+ - Florida ballot terminals favor Republicans

Submitted by

jonfr writes "According to The Register, it appears that Florida electronic voteing machinces prefer Republicans, even when voters try to vote for Democrats. From the news artical.

"Florida voters using electronic ballot machines are having persistent problems choosing Democrats in early elections, the Miami Herald reports. The touch-screen gizmos seem strangely attracted to Republican candidates. One voter needed assistance from an election official, and even then, needed three tries to convince the machine that he wanted to vote for Democrat Jim Davis in the gubernatorial race, not his Republican opponent Charlie Crist."

I guess that voteing with paper and pen is not a bad idea after all. More on this news here."
