PA Sec. of State: No Systemic Voting Problems
Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008
I’m watching Pennsylvania Secretary of State Pedro Cortes give a press briefing on a CNN.com live video stream.
“This has been a very good election,” he said. “Back in 2006 we faced issues with the voting systems itself,” and this year he says his department isn’t seeing “systemic” problems including those with voting machines.
Cortes said there were voting machine malfunctions, but not what county the voting machines malfunctioned in (the reporter didn’t ask a follow-up question). He noted that only specific machines, and never entire polling places, encountered problems. Here’s our look into potential trouble areas with voting machines.
