Count the votes -- again



The Democratic Party of Arkansas will ask for a partial recount of Benton County ballots. There have been three different counts so far, the last leaving all Republicans in the lead. Republicans are heard to grumble. When you like the results, who cares if you have a trustworthy election system.

In addition to the obvious counting problems -- worsened by the Republican county clerk's live feed of counting results to a Republican hotel party -- rumbles continue about other irregularities, particularly a mishandling of voter records in early voting and election day voting that could have opened the door to people casting more than one ballot. It doesn't matter if it did happen. It matters that it CAN happen.
