Double Punching Data

Here is data published in the Los Angeles Times on double punching. The data seems to confirm the allegation that the double punching was primarily confusion over the ballot, or difficulty in matching holes (according to Palm Beach voter statements, the ballot appears to have been in some cases misprinted and not have had the holes match up correctly - showing the claim that "First graders had no problem with the ballot" to be a lie, since they weren't using the same machines.)

The vast majority of double-punches were Gore and Buchanan votes. Perhaps, in a moment of schizophrenia, voters decided to vote for both. Perhaps some are actually Buchanan votes that accidentally punched Gore (though considering Palm Beach already had an abnormal number of votes to Pat already (a number exceeding what should be expected by over 2,000), that seems unlikely.) The most likely scenario, however, is that these errors lean to Gore, but the voter's choice was denied due to gross negligence of the state of Florida in designing the ballot.

Over the past two weeks, voters of Palm Beach have been insulted over thks fiasco by right-wing blowhards, who normally proclaim a desire to embrace individual rights over defending the state. The right to representation is a cornerstone of our country, and was a basic rallying cry for its formation. Whether due to "honest" mistake or outright fraud, the evidence is there that this basic right to have a say in the government has been denied to thousands of Floridians, and the choice for the head of the Executive Branch hangs in the balance.
