Scan­ner should give warn­ing sig­nal for blanks

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Opinion -

When you feed your vote into a scan­ner, the screen on the scan­ner should warn the voter if any of the races/ bal­lot mea­sures were left blank. The voter should then have the op­tion to con­firm this was an in­ten­tional ab­sten­tion or be given the op­tion to can­cel the scan and go back to the vot­ing booth to com­plete the bal­lot.

With a mul­ti­ple page bal­lot printed on both sides, it is not sur­pris­ing that peo­ple ac­ci­den­tally may have missed the Se­nate race es­pe­cially when placed in a bot­tom cor­ner.
