Yep seems little has changed in states like Florida. :( Anyhoo here are two good sites I found an interesting read over. I don't see how in 4 years this wasn't fixed after all the trouble we had in 2000. There should be a nation wide standard for a national election. If the states wanna do their own thing on in state votes thats up to them I guess, but no standard for something as big as the Presidental election is just careless and not well thought out. Anyhoo here are those links I promised above before me short rant. :p

SFGate.com that claims to be ..
A look at lawsuits, voting problems and other ballot issues around the country

sun-sentinal.com has to do with Florida early voting problems. (ie. before the real load is even put on them)

*edit*- found this info that kinda explains how that crazy electoral college thing works and shows updated info like how many votes each state gets (ie. Florida get 27 this year which is +2 from last year).
