Funny thing is a great deal has improved since 2000. We dumped the punch-chads, first in favor of electronic systems that had no physical paper trail, and now we've mostly gotten rid of even that and switched to optical scan ballots which work just fine and can be machine counted quickly, and hand counted without much ambiguity.
I can't speak for Broward County, of course.
I suspect, that in a state where major elections were so close, we would see similar trouble. When it's a purple state and a few thousand votes can make a big difference, the warts are seen. I think most states have them, it's just usually not so close that they matter.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
