Senate panel hears of vote woes

Reporting on yesterday's state senate hearings on the November election the Seattle P-I says: "Reed, who said 20 of the state's 39 counties had problems, cautioned lawmakers not to expect perfection in a state with 3 million voters and the inevitability of a small error rate by 'human beings working their hearts out. This is a very, very human process.'"

King County Elections Director Dean Logan chimed in. "It's important not to set up a false expectation. When you're dealing with a process that is so dependent on human interactions ... there is going to be a margin of human and administrative error."

Hmmm. And so it is. Making every vote count is a pipedream.
