Submission + - How not to set up a evoting system (milwaukeenewsbuzz.com)

vlm writes: Here's an unusual example of evoting failure. The "IT" folks had a data import fail in their brittle Excel / Access reporting system, changing the results of an election.

Note that no one in the MSM understands its a reporting / data analysis failure, not a data gathering failure. The voting technology used is optical scantron. The evoting failure was not being able to correctly accomplish the remarkably simple task of adding the votes from all county precincts.
