One election result reversed in Indiana after recount

According to the AP there has been another "computer glitch"—
A Democrat gained enough votes to bump a Republican from victory in a county commissioner's race after a recount prompted by a computer glitch in optical-scan voting.

The glitch in the Fidlar Election Co. vote-scanning system had recorded straight-Democratic Party votes for Libertarians.

Despite the problems, vote-scanning systems are still superior to touchscreen machines with no paper trail. But all such systems should be hand-counted as a verification of results.
