TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A veteran elections official has quit his post overseeing the state's voting machinery.

Less than five months before the Nov. 2 election, Ed Kast stepped down as chief of the Division of Elections, saying he wished to pursue other interests.

Kast, 53, had worked at the Department of State since 1994 and took over as elections chief in 2002.

Secretary of State Glenda Hood named the agency's top lawyer, Dawn Roberts, to replace him.

Kast said he believed the Division of Elections had plenty of time to get ready for Election Day under new leadership.


Not good people. Not good at all. Suggests a pending electorial disaster. I wonder if this person is ready to go public or go hide.
