Breaking news from Christine Stapleton at the Post!

Remember Lake Worthians the last August 26th's bond vote when all those provisional ballots were not counted due to clerk error? What if you discovered in the November 4th election, only 71 days later, voters cast votes that the poll workers knew were wrong but the votes were counted? That would sound on the face of it like a double standard, right? In a story in the Palm Beach Post that will be in tomorrow's print edition THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED! Oddly enough, one of the precinct locations where the most errors were made was the Scottish Rite Masonic Center, precinct 3040, in Lake Worth.

Here is an excerpt from the article by Christine Stapleton:
Poll workers at 11 Palm Beach County precincts gave the wrong ballot to more than 100 voters on election day, according to a report compiled by county Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher.
Of the 109 wrong ballots issued, precinct 3040 at the Lake Worth Scottish Rite Masonic Center in Lake Worth topped the list with 46 wrong ballots. Precincts 3042 at the First Congregational Church on North K Street in Lake Worth and 7204 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Delray Beach each had 21 wrong ballots issued.
I am sure there will be much more to come on this.
