From the Wise County Messenger in Texas...
The city may have to have another election, officials said.
The city used three Diebold Election Systems voting machines in its election – two were designated for early voting and the other for election day.
When one of the early voting machines stopped allowing people to cast ballots, Kelly-Richardson said the city switched to paper ballots.
The memory card, which stores the votes from the machine, was “pulled out and sealed up” until the results should be counted, she said.
When the memory card was opened from storage and placed in a machine for reading, it showed to have no votes on it.
“We knew that the card had 38 ballots on it,” she said.
The story gets even more amazing as a fire breaks out in city hall, where the machines are stored, engulfing one of them in flames. You'll have to check it out yourself for those details.
But we don't mind awarding Denton County's election administrator, Don Alexander, BRAD BLOG's "Understatement of the Year Award" for this quoted comment from the story:
“Diebold does not have a good reputation,” Alexander said.
