Are we surprised? Bluffton was incorrect, I know that is where I vote. The poll worker in my opinion placed the wrong ballot in the booth. She did not even look at my slip of paper.

Some, with district 45 name and district 46 on the same ballot and poll workers told voters they could PICK EITHER ONE? Wrong, so those votes don't count. How many more?

I say it is time for a change in who runs the election. I want the Senate put back on the ballots, let all people vote for the correct district. One young man voted for the 1st time and was very upset he could not vote for his candidate. How can these mistakes continue? Florida should have been a lesson for all, look how that turned out.
