 First voting glitch hits Florida

Here comes the shitstorm.
A glitch in a voting machine at an early polling place in Volusia County, Fla., is forcing election officials to recount about 13,000 ballots. The ballots were removed from the City Island Library in Daytona Beach and transported to a secure vault in Deland after an optical scan machine failed.

A computer error is to blame for the failure of the memory card which records the voting data. The thousands of ballots will have to be resubmitted through voting machines Tuesday, according to Local 6 News. The problem includes every ballot cast during the last several weeks at the library.
At least in this case they have ballots to recount. What if this were an electronic touchscreen?
