Katherine Harris: Oops
It sounds like something from the 2000 presidential election -- an absentee ballot isn't counted because it isn't filled out properly. And this disenfranchised voter was no stranger to election debacles -- U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris.
Harris, who as Florida's secretary of state oversaw the presidential recount, forgot to sign her absentee ballot when she voted in Longboat Key's local election March 9.
"I feel terrible," Harris said Friday. "It's a mistake. I regret it."
Harris, now a member of Congress, said she was in a rush to catch a flight to Washington, D.C., when she handed the unsigned absentee ballot to her husband to send in. She said she usually votes in person and has never had trouble before. -- Harris forgets to sign her absentee ballot (OrlandoSentinel.com)
Seems to me that I remember the Republicans claiming that any undervotes in 2000 were the fault of voters too stupid to follow instructions.
