'Condo commandos' caused ballot snafu 'Gore operatives,' others mistakenly instructed thousands of Palm Beach seniors to 'punch #2'
Diana Lynne

As reported by the Palm Beach Post, the Democratic Club of Greater Boynton Beach got the candidates' numbers mixed up in their voting recommendation published in its November newsletter to members. A few days prior to the election, according to the Post, the club issued postcards headlined "Oops!" which explained that members had been incorrectly instructed to "punch #3 for Al Gore" but that number 3 would actually be a vote for Republican George Bush. The postcard further instructed members they should "punch #5 for Al Gore."

Asked whether he got the candidates' numbers right on Century Village palm cards, Oser replied, "I don't recall whether there were numbers."

However, a worker at Century Village told WorldNetDaily the "palm cards" that were distributed prior to the election were wrong. When the error was discovered, new palm cards were printed and handed out outside of the polls on Election Day.

According to this worker, who wishes to remain anonymous, "Whoever took the palm card from us outside the polls got the right information. Those that didn't wouldn't have..."

Revisiting the Florida vote the Florida vote


George W. Bush would have won a hand count of Florida's disputed ballots if the standard advocated by Al Gore had been used, the first full study of the ballots reveals. Bush would have won by 1,665 votes — more than triple his official 537-vote margin — if every dimple, hanging chad and mark on the ballots had been counted as votes, a USA TODAY/Miami Herald/Knight Ridder study shows. The study is the first comprehensive review of the 61,195 "undervote" ballots that were at the center of Florida's disputed presidential election.

Newspapers' recount shows Bush prevailedBy Dennis Cauchon, USA TODAY

Published Wednesday, April 4, 2001

Republican George W. Bush's victory in Florida, which gave him the White House, almost certainly would have endured even if a recount stopped by the U.S. Supreme Court had been allowed to go forward.

In fact, a comprehensive review of 64,248 ballots in all 67 Florida counties by The Herald and its parent company, Knight Ridder, in partnership with USA Today, found that Bush's slender margin of 537 votes would have tripled to 1,665 votes under the generous counting standards advocated by Democrat Al Gore.

Although most of the recommendations explicitly specified limited federal involvement, task force Chairwoman Priest sees a possible expansion of federal involvement in setting standards. Currently, the Federal Election Commission’s voting systems standards are geared toward technical requirements, such as paper size and thickness. Priest thinks that the FEC’s voluntary standards could be expanded to define votes for each particular type of machinery, solving one of the stickiest issues for the task force: who determines what counts as a vote. “They’re going to be more objective in their subjectivity,” Priest said. “The FEC doesn’t have a dog in the fight in a local race.”

Papers Find No Clear Florida Winner The Associated Press Friday, May 11, 2001; 6:38 a.m. EDT

And this should grab your attention, as we've said all along - the numbers of registered voters who actually cast ballots has never yet been reported. And here's the key discrepancy. although the Herald said it examined 64,826 undervotes, while USA Today put the figure at 60,647.

Where are 4,179 ballot votes between the time the Herald examined the undervotes, and the time the USA Today examined THE ACTUAL UNDERVOTE BALLOTS?

USA Today, the Herald, Knight Ridder newspapers, The Tampa Tribune and five other Florida papers – the Tallahassee Democrat, The Bradenton Herald, Florida Today, The News-Press of Fort Myers and the Pensacola News Journal – reviewed the state's uncounted votes.

The papers agreed there were 111,261 overvotes, although the Herald said it examined 64,826 undervotes, while USA Today put the figure at 60,647. But the papers agreed on the final results of the analysis...

What does it matter now that there is no accounting for an exact number of ballots of undervotes? It's a little bit like Russia?
