Contested U.S. House 110th Congress Election.

  • On 20 November election officials certified Republican Vernon "Vern" Buchanan (119,309 votes, 50.08%) as the winner by 369 votes. Democratic Christine L. Jennings received (118,940 votes, 49.92%). Democratic Christine L. Jennings filed a lawsuit in Leon County requesting a new election arguing that a malfunction in the voting machines caused a 12.9% undervote (18,412 blank ballots).
  • An audit of the machines began the week of 27 November using a 12 hour scripted "mock election". The first tests, performed 28 November on voting machines not brought into service on election day, showed a CD 13 discrepancy of 5 votes (in favor of Jennings). However, video tapes revealed that the differences were due to participants making mistakes while choosing their selections. The second tests, performed 1 December on voting machines that had an undervote on election day, showed no discrepancies in the CD 13 contest. The final audit report found no evidence of machine malfunction.
  • On 20 December 2006 Circuit Judge William Gary ruled that Jennings arguments about the possibility of lost votes did not warrant disclosing the trade secrets of the voting machine company Election Systems & Software. Jennings stated she will appeal.
  • On 20 December 2006 Jennings filed a Notice of Contest with the U.S. House.
  • Vernon "Vern" Buchanan was seated in Congress on 4 January 2007. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the legal proceedings would be handled later.
  • Christine Jennings decided to withdraw the lawsuit in Florida courts on 28 November 2007.
