Broken: Michigan absentee ballot

MiballotNeale McDavitt-Van Fleet points us to this brewing election problem in Michigan... on the absentee ballot, the arrows are mis-aligned with the presidential candidate names. The closest arrow to both Bush and Kerry is the one that registers a vote for Bush.

See the full scan here. (Scroll down to the presidential names.)


Meehhh?! That thing makes Florida's infamous butterfly ballot look like child's play!

I hope *something* is done about that-- yes, absentee ballots make up a minority of voters, but an error that egregious can't just go ignored.

They did note that it was caught quickly and only 69 people actually received the document and they were all immediately contacted and given the proper version.

Not that is makes it somehow okay, but it isn't as bad as it sounds on the larger scale.
