This Oct. 23, 2012, photo shows a Democratic and Republican observer watching as two county election board workers transfer data from an absentee ballot at the Post Beach county election board office in Riviera Beach, Fla. Because of a printing error, somewhere around 27,000 absentee ballots already cast by voters are being painstakingly copied by hand in Palm Beach County to make sure they can be read by a scanning machine. Otherwise, thousands of people could be disenfranchised in the Florida county that was ground zero in the 2000 presidential recount. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter)
