Where are they getting "first confirmed instance of a voting machine
'losing' votes in a real election" from?
There have been plenty of documented cases of votes going missing in
various circumstances, but there was often no way to confirm the /full
extent/ of the damage. (And that means it should be ignored??? In some
cases it has led to election results being overturned without
explanation--candidate goes to bed a winner, and the next morning lost
of their votes are gone. Or the Louisiana candidate who filmed votes
flipping from her to a rival on numerous voting machines in a warehouse.)
Odd that they didn't mention Sarasota FL, with its 18,000 recent
"undervotes" and multiple technical problems. They are talking about
re-running the election because so many votes were lost.
