  1. San Franciso had problems tabulating the results of its supervisor races, due to the new software required to implement ranked-choice voting. The vendor said the software “written with such a large turnout in mind". Turns out it was the same company as used in Broward Co, FL, which couldn’t count past 32,000.

  2. At the beginning of Tuesday’s board meeting, election officials gave a
    detailed explanation of vote-counting errors on election night. They

  4. Guilford County’s problem is within the Unity Election Management Software. They use “Unity” version 2.2 which employs Election Reporting Module version

    ES&S knew about the limitation of 32,768 votes and put that in a letter to Guilford County BOE. I saw the letter, and it is available at this link:

    Please read this letter. The problem is not in the optical scanners in this case.

    Guilford County purchased this Unity Software in 2003.
