I'm sure Black Box Voting will have more on this story soon, but here's the initial press offering on the Orange County voting snafu:

Elections officials said some poll workers gave voters incorrect computer access codes, which resulted in voters accessing electronic ballots for elections outside their districts.

An exact number of incorrect votes is impossible to determine because of steps taken to ensure voter confidentiality, said David Hart, chairman of Texas-based Hart InterCivic, which manufactured Orange County's voting system.

See, it can't possibly be the fault of the machines, or the programming. Human error is the only possible flaw in this, the best of all possible voting systems.
