BoingBoing has published a report from a voter in Santa Clara, California, that his voting machine displayed an odd error message when he tried to cast his vote. Here’s a picture he took with his phonecam (click to see a larger version):

  1. I’m sure plenty of dissection of this error messsage will take place, but it strikes me that
    it doesn’t specify which vote – or votes –
    were not “saved": does this message refer to
    one item on the current voter’s ballot, the
    entire current ballot, or all ballots submitted
    since some previous time (when, presumably, the “save” succeeded)?

    And do the poll workers who are on-site
    know that answer?
