Watch part two
In Florida not only have the election processes broken down but also the computerised voting machines and vote counting systems have failed and miscounted or lost votes.
In 2006, Sarasota County's election suffered 18,412 lost votes, votes that were apparently cast, but never recorded by voting machines.
Florida Fair Elections is a grassroots group founded by Susan Pynchon. Susan and her colleagues investigated Sarasota's lost votes, obtaining more than 10,000 election records.
Neither she, nor the Government Accountability office in Washington DC who also researched a report, found where the votes went.
Now Susan Pynchon is running for the office of Supervisor of Elections as an election reform candidate and set out to observe, monitor and film the vote counting process in her county.
