Floridian Has Trouble Voting for Bush in Broward County

"I walked in and went to a table to show my driver's license," Hetzel told NewsMax.com. "I then went straight ahead from the table to the first machine, and I couldn't get a hole in it."

Hetzel further explained he pulled the card out and pushed it back in but still couldn't get the needle to punch a hole through for Bush, so he went to a second machine. There he experienced the same problem.

"Perhaps they were blocked," Hetzel said, trying to understand what happened.

Determined to vote for Bush, however, he went to a third voting booth and found that it worked.

Although he didn't tell those in charge of Precinct 6C what had happened, he was convinced something was wrong with the machines and believes that anybody else who tried using the two machines would have had the same problem. He was quick to add that he was well practiced in punching holes in the ballot.

"You couldn't make a mistake," Hetzel said. "Any child could get a hole in the card. I mean, I'm voting every four years."

But could Hetzel have been a victim of voter fraud?

"It's pretty hard to prove, but it's suspicious at least," he said.

Regarding the media frenzy in his area, Hetzel said the whole debate over who won "is ridiculous" and thinks Bush is the clear victor.

"Even the butterfly ballots they had in Palm Beach – I cannot see any reason why something should go wrong either," Hetzel said.

"If you can't see right, you shouldn't vote, or you should have eyeglasses. Either one.

"If you don't know the difference from what's up or down, you shouldn't vote, right?"

Indeed.
