The article is dated Feb, 09, 2004 and is referring to events in the 2002
"mid-term" elections. It's not a report of allegations that votes were
lost - the votes in question were cast by "eary voters", who filled in
absentee ballot forms at the same time that they cast the votes, so there
was had proof that the machines lost votes - the number of votes recorded
was significantly less than the number of absentee forms. And because it all
happened before election day, there was actually time to document the
problem, and contact the voters involved.
