Up to 100,000 votes may not be counted in Los Angeles Co. New Mexico is still counting ballots from the week-old caucus and probably will be for a couple more days. The Washington state GOP has stopped counting caucus votes, with 13% more to be counted, and has declared a winner. These are not voting machine issues but election administration issues. More voters are affected by these failures than they are by voting machines. When you add in all of the problems with voter registration data bases that have been apparent in CA, AZ, NM, LA, and other states so far this year, there is a pattern that should be of great concern. Tomorrow we have primary voters going to the polls in Maryland and Virginia and the District of Columbia. Let’s hope they do much better. If not, we will be reporting their failures.
