PBC absentees won't all be counted Tuesday

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - In a move that will affect the final tabulation of votes in Palm Beach County, Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher has sent home the workers who were duplicating around 30,000 misprinted absentee ballots.

The workers were sent home around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday evening and were asked to return at 10 a.m. Wednesday to continue duplicating the remainder of the ballots.

It is unclear at this time how many of the ballots were duplicated before they were sent home.

Bucher said things are going well, and she is glad people in Florida have had an opportunity to exercise their right to vote. "The polls have been very busy, and, you know, we've had the usual technical problems with some jams, with some scanners and that sort of thing. But other than that, it's gone fairly well," Bucher said.

As of 9:09 p.m. Tuesday, 86 percent of the cartridges containing voting data from the precincts in Palm Beach County have been uploaded without any problems.
