  • Design can do ANYTHING
  • Florida election Nov 7 2000 Redesign of the butterfly ballot Max voting time was 5 mins ‘ Design alters the course of history’ 537 votes
  • But… Bad designers and bad clients exist he told CBS. "For example, if you switch just two numbers it gives all of the Bush votes to Gore and all Gore's votes to Bush." Other people lay the blame at the door of electoral supervisor, Theresa LePore, who designed the controversial "butterfly ballot". This was meant to make it easier for elderly voters but many said it led to them voting for the wrong candidate. The point of confusion is that Al Gore is the second name on the ballot but to vote for him one had to punch the third punch hole on the ballot. If one just punched the second hole, thinking that it was for Al Gore, he/she would have voted instead for Pat Buchanan. Someone with poor eyesight or who was in a hurry to vote could have made that mistake. Apparently many thousands, perhaps over 3,000, of the 450,000+ votes in Palm Beach county did make that mistake.
