Gulf Breeze, Fla voting disaster

November 6, 2012

The Santa Rosa County precinct 22 in the Gulf Breeze Recreation Center is a voting disaster. We have a reporter that the precinct did not have a voting scanner when it opened at 7 a.m. Approximately 150 voters were told to place their ballots in a box to be scanned later. By 10 a.m. one scanner was in place and the wait to have votes scanned was two hours. By noon, a second scanner had arrived and the wait was cut to a hour and 20 minutes.

It’s a good thing that the Supervisor of Elections Ann Bodenstein is stepping down after this election.

    The article talks about the recreation center. Are you sure the report isn’t about the church on Oriole Beach Road?

    Precinct 32 is in the same location and was running smoothly at 8:30 this morning. I was wondering what the problem was on the other side of the room. No one was waiting to vote, but there was a huge line of people waiting to leave.

      No, I was the Gulf Breeze Rec Center. By 10:30 am, the long lines began to form.
