Twelve years later you would think it would be the most efficient and modern electoral system in the nation.

Nah, next election Florida voters will have to vote by throwing darts.

Only if you presume they actually want to have the most efficient and modern electoral system in the nation. But they don't. At least not the current administration in Tallahassee. Governor Rick Scott is unhappy because, in his view, voting didn't go badly enough in Florida. Too many people vote. He didn't suppress nearly as many votes as he had hoped.

Suppression didn't work out well for them in Florida or the nation, but they may double their efforts for 2014. Their base has a bottomless wallet, so we normal Americans must get off our butts to fight this. They got the money, but we got the numbers.
For one thing, those unverifiable republican-owned voting machines have to go.

Glad to know Florida was irrelevant and that the Presidential election did not hinge on this BS Rick Scott state. Some people I know in miami received absentee ballots they did not request, after waiting online for 1.5 hours, they'd have to wait another hour until poll workers reportedly had to verify that they didn't vote via absentee ballot. Seems GOP workers purposely sent these absentee ballots to people knowing it would slow down the process when they showed up to vote. Shame on Florida and the Governor!

Thankfully this election was not decided on Florida. Good Riddance!

Maybe the voters of Florida should go stand in line right now for 2014. That's the only way they can be assured they'll be able to vote.

What happened in Florida on Tuesday makes the U.S. look like a third world country. It was a disgrace.

That's because in some states our elected officials are crooks. No other word. Crooks.

If the election came down to Florida like it did in 2000, It would have gone to Romney, and he would be President.

This states electoral system is likely the most corrupted in the entire nation. The worst of the worst.
