Election questions

I can’t understand why the Aurora mayoral election took so long to conclude. Your article in the Independent contained a paragraph that said, “We have the machine’s tolerance set pretty high; it typically only accepts about half of the signatures it encounters.”

Wow! Half?

I thought we were past the “count by hand’ technique.” I’m guessing the people in the department that handles elections are probably new but I think their process and documentation needs to be reviewed by some more experienced people.

By the way, people’s handwriting changes over the years so if your machine is rejecting half, then I suggest you need to dial it down a bit.
