West Palm Beach (CNN) - Florida's Palm Beach County is reporting problems at a couple of polling stations: so-called "undervotes," where machines reject ballots because some voters are not filling out the second page of the ballot, a spokesman for the county Board of Elections confirmed. The page contains proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution.
The spokesman said these undervotes are legal. The scanner spits the ballot back and reminds the voter to vote on the second page, the spokesman said, adding that the voter then has the choice of voting or registering the undervote.
Watch: Floridians vote
He said in some cases people simply forget to fill out the second page, but most voters seem to be intentionally skipping that part of the ballot.
The town of Palm Beach is also reporting minor sporadic voter machine failures, the spokesman said. A handful of machines had to be replaced.
One polling station in the county opened one hour late because of a problem with their precinct voting list.
Voting problems in Florida?
YOU'RE KIDDING ME.
wow it seems like the republicans are trying to steal florida once again.
Vote Early and Vote often. Go Acorn
FLA ? No !
And Jeb Bush isn't even running this one. tut tut tut
I'm sure there's no major problem...even though it only took a few minutes to hack the machines.
hmmmn im curious
i got my eye on you florida....
Hey, all you Obama fans, BO teared up yesterday. Where's all the nasty cracks about crocodile tears – or do you save those for Hillary?
And here's a missed opportunity to make fun of Mr and Mrs McCain – quick – not a moment to lose – get out there and be jerks one more time.

Wow- is it so hard for these people to vote? How do they manage to feed themselves?
If we're a free country, where we don't have to vote if we don't want to, how does it make sense that if you don't vote on a part of the ballot, the entire ballot is thrown out? That just doesn't make sense to me.
FIX THIS BEFORE ELECTION DAY...... GENIOUS!
What is it with Florida – I live in a tiny town in South Carolina – the machine worked perfectly!! – OBAMA/BIDEN 2008!!
Typical Florida insanity.
As long as the workers make sure the voter has a chance to redo it, this is not a problem.
Is there some reason why people in Florida cannot fill out a simple ballot? I mean, c'mon... it's one thing to have machines "screwing up", but it seems that today, as in the last 2 elections, the people can't even fill out a ballot correctly.
Something in the water?
Who would have thought that of FL? Where the GOP mastered the arts of stealing elections?
From over here it's very clear what's going on.. and it's Disgusting!
The "Democatic" leader of the world will yet again have another fixed election.. Misleading robo calls, Machine Breakdowns! Our news channels are comparing it to 2000, and 2004.. God help the Republican Party if they steal this one too!
Elections are easy.. Ballot, Mark it, Count it!! What do you need scanners and stupid machines for? Fraud.. thats what!
Let's not forget, Liberal lunies, that the 2000 election was legitimately won by Bush and it was Gore who attempted to steal the election. You silly Liberals always try to revise history.
and more STUPID voting procedures....
we need a NATIONAL procedure...this is moronic
Florida having voting problems already? Why am I not surprised?
VOTE YES FOR CAPITALIST DEMOCRACY
VOTE NO FOR NATIONAL SOCIALISM
Another Florida SCAM !! Where's Jeb at ?? Something needs to be done
about this crap that they pull every election year.
The Stealing has started
another one....in a swing state that McCain needs....the repubs trying to steal another election by the electol college numbers.
Interesting how all the issue are in swing states that Mccain needs.
I thin it is time to do away with the elctrol college, and go back to popular vote.Maybe back to the original election process that the VP is the person who lost the presidnetial race....now that would be intersting.
It is hard not to form negative opinions regarding the acumen of the Sunshine State's Election Board. I am sure the Tourism Board doesn't have problems printing directions to Disney.
And I guarantee that all these people who can't figure out a simple ballot are Obama supporters. Do we need to put pictures of the candidates on the ballots so these morons can get it right for once?
