If Election Day is boring, that’s good

by thoughtfulconservative

The St. Petersburg Times notes the potential problems facing the count in Florida, and that doesn’t even include shennanigans either side (I’m not a pollyanna, after all) may commit.

• About 2.5-million more voters are expected to cast ballots this year than voted in the Bush-Gore race.

• Florida’s biggest counties, including Pinellas, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, will debut a paper-ballot machine that most voters will have never seen before.

• The new paper ballots take up to twice as long to complete as the touch-screen ballots they replaced, which could mean longer waits for voters. [Emphasis mine]

Whew! Hang onto your hats, boys and girls.
