Yet Another Election Screw Up in Florida

The Palm Beach Post reports a canvassing board decided to recount all 37,379 ballots from early voting in the tight congressional race between Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and Patrick Murphy (D) after elections officials revealed that 306 ballots had gone uncounted.

Rick Hasen: "Just imagine if the presidential race hinged on Florida.  How many more stories of missing and miscounted ballots would have emerged (beyond the ones we've already heard about) if the fate of the presidency hinged on the outcome."
