The Village of Wellington has had some problems in the vote counting of their March 13 election. According to the Supervisor of Elections, Susan Bucher, there was a software glitch which caused incorrect results and therefore a recount is necessary.
The Supervisor of Elections has issued a notice of a Ppublic Meeting of the Village of Wellington Canvassing Board to convene on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. to conduct a hand recount and certify the results of Wellington’s Municipal Elections held on March 13, 2012 for the following races: Mayor, Seat 1 and Seat4
The hand recount will be conducted at the Supervisor Of Elections Service Center at 7835 Central Industrial Drive, Riviera Beach, Florida 33404. In accordance with the Sunshine Law of Florida, all Canvassing Board meetings are open to the public.
Whatever results the recount will bring, there may still be some dissension and there still might be those not satisfied. There has been much tension regarding the results of the original election. For those that were successful, the possibility of a recount may not prove favorable. Ultimately there will be winners and unfortunately there will be losers.
Hopefully, Palm Beach have corrected their software problem before the August 14 Primary and the General Election November 6. The vote is important for all of us and ensuring that all votes count and that all votes are counted correctly is extremely important.
