It is unbelievable to me that Florida relied solely on computer systems for their voting. You'd think some geek would have told them, "you can't rely on computers. Computers break down. Even if you are NASA. You need backup systems. Have paper ballots available just in case." But nooooo. They turned people away because the computers were broken. It's insane.
