State of Florida Elections

Editorial: To avert a messy election, quick action on districts needed photoSusan Bucher

The courts and legislators need to hurry up and finally get their act together. Florida’s elections clock is ticking down fast.

By state law, the results must be reported by congressional district, and the counties must do a ton of work to get things ready — things as basic as making sure that people know where they’re supposed to vote.

In a place as large as Palm Beach County, these preparations will be exceptionally complex.

There are 845 precincts in the county and “tens of thousands” of census blocs, says Susan Bucher, the county’s elections supervisor.

In most of the proposed maps now under consideration, no less than three of the congressional districts that cross the county, and possibly four, are likely to be in for major changes.

Have they fixed the problems in states like Florida regarding elections? | Yahoo Answers

wisdomforfools has presented a foolish answer. Perhaps she should research the problems in Broward County in the elections *following* the 2000 presidential.
Any counting system has a margin of error. One hopes that officials can reduce this error, so that the margin of victory is greater than the margin of error. When it is not, when elections are so close, officials conduct recounts. Trouble is, in 2000 in Florida, the Dems wanted to change the rules *AFTER THE FACT*, and if you read your constitution, Miss Kelly, you will realize that ex post facto laws are unconstitutional.
