The Importance of One Vote in Palm Beach

It decided the Mayor’s race:

An appellate court has affirmed a Palm Beach County Circuit Court judge’s decision upholding the result of the town’s February 2009 mayoral election.

Mayor Jack McDonald defeated challenger Gerry Goldsmith by a single vote in a Feb. 21 recount of a Feb. 17 runoff between the two.

In an opinion released Wednesday, Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal found that Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher’s office correctly excluded from the recount 13 absentee ballots that weren’t picked up by her office until the morning after the election.
