in Williamson County7:00am
Taylor Daily News reports about 84,500 people voted in Williamson County, but the computer software program recorded more than 91,000 votes. Officials claim all is well, and the 6,000+ phantom votes won't affect the results of the Nov. 7 election.
Who needs a paper audit trail? Let's just wing it and trust all parties involved as they scheme behind the e-machine curtain. I think that 'accountability' thing is overrated anyway. Right?
Williamson County elections
Amid hard questions about the 6,000+ phantom votes in the Williamson County elections, Elections Administrator Debra Stacy resigned today with a one-sentence e-mail.
Earlier today, they claimed the vote percentages would stay the same. It is now possible the outcome of the election will be affected as votes will somehow be 'recounted'. Does this smell fishy to you?
