This Oct. 23, 2012 photo shows a county election worker checking an absentee ballot at the Post Beach county election board office in Riviera Beach, Fla. Each table has two county election board workers transferring data from a misprinted ballot to a correct one while a Democratic and Republican observer watches.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)
