A note to the County Board of Elections

Two significant digits are more than enough. I know it's mathematically correct, but it's a bit silly to say that 82.9207920792079% of the precincts are reporting.

82.92% or even 83% works just as well.

What really irritates me is that PCNC, with the political guru (LOL) Bill Green were reporting results with 12% in while the County Website Elections Department page were reporting 90%. Wouldn't ya think someone at PXI would have the common sense to have their computers directed to the Elections site and hit the update button every few minutes (as I did) to get accurate and up-to-the-minute results? I wonder how they could have been so far behind? For instance, Bill Green was saying that Payne would win the race "because she is the endorsed democrat and the numbers are early" when in real time, Lavelle was never behind and 96 percent was in. Green was reading very early numbers and saying that although Lavelle was ahead, many more precincts were still out and Payne would gain the lead. What a joke Bill Green and that broadcast are. And at another point, a screen graphic and David Johnson referring to Blotzer as 'Blauser". Do our newscaster not even know the candidates names?
