2006 Florida 13th district election: Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.) and Christine Jennings

The 2006 congressional election between Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.) and Christine Jennings was decided by just 370 votes. In 17,000 to 18,000 ballots, voters did not choose either candidate. In election administration terminology, this is known as an "undervote" and may indicate a failure of Sarasota's direct-recording electronic (DRE) voting machines. The Help America Vote Act of 2002 was passed to correct election administration errors.

In May, 2007, the Committee created a special task force to investigate the 18,000 ballot undervote.[1]
