Ignoring for sake of argument what state law says they must do, was there any other remedy available that would have made up for the election judges' unfortunate errors? Was their any possible way to pull the ballots that were given in error to voters? Or is that simply not possible to do.

I find this all very distasteful to be honest. But at the same time, am not sure what the better option would be.

Editor: actually, no, there's no way of telling. As for other options, the judge reviewed them after hearing arguments from both sides yesterday morning. One conservative blogger has suggested ending secret ballots entirely, a curious reversal of the logic used against the Employee Free Choice Act, which would allow unions to use majority sign-up elections to organize workplaces. I don't have an answer.
