Time to Start Crying

Or at least praying that this year's presidential race isn't as close as the 2000 election. According to the New York Times (registration or BugMeNot required), all of Miami-Dade county's votes in a recent gubernatorial primary were lost due to system crashes. In that same election, 8% of the votes were simply lost. Of course, no matter what happens there will be little recourse. The Florida legislatures passed laws banning recounts on electronic voting except in the case of natural disaster. Oops. Can we just cut Florida off from the Union and sail it to Columbia or someplace? Thanks Ars Technica.
