THE COUNTING: Vote Scandal, What Scandal?


 When no news is good news: An underlying theme today is the near absence of glitches at Southern Nevada’s 339 polls despite a heavy turnout in Clark County.

  A big reason for the smooth turnout: the success of early voting and the addition of 1,000 machines.

  It doesn’t mean problems won’t arise, but it should put to rest the buzz of rumors about massive registration abnormalities equaling a scandal at the polls.
