Some voting machines in Broward County can only count 32,000 votes per precinct. Translating this to tech terms, it could probably count up to 32,767 votes, which is a bit of a magic computer number. It’s the largest number a 16-bit signed integer can hold. Why, oh why, is this an issue in this day and age? Are those extra two bytes so precious? 536,870,912 bytes cost only $95.99. I’m sure we could afford to spare a couple.
