Why does Florida always seem to get counting votes wrong? A short primer (or defense).
As a veteran of the 2000 recount and several subsequent close Florida elections (to understand my recount role just Google my name and 2000 recount or 2000 Florida recount or whatever) I can attest to the seemingly constant electoral problems our state appears to have.

Should Broward Democratic Chairman Mitch Ceaser consider a run for Supervisor of Elections?
In 2014, the Broward Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office was again the epicenter of controversy and ineptitude during the election cycle.

District 2 the latest fiasco for poorly run Broward SOE
I have lots of gripes with the Broward Supervisor of Elections office.

Broward County is the best performing Democratic urban county […]
