Election 2000 Enchantment, by Elaine North, is a fun-filled adventure of two young women, who are ballot hand recounters during the Florida election crisis. The young women encounter intrigue, romance, passion, danger and deception as they meet some of the many people from across the country that converge upon Florida due to the derailed election. Both young women are 21. Jennifer McCloud is a pretty white brunette, and Robin Booth is a lovely, slender African American. Jennifer becomes romantically involved with a dashing young New York reporter, and Robin has a courtship with a tall handsome young black attorney from Chicago. Jennifer and Robin also meet a habitual criminal and thief, Dick Johnson. The thief is a white man, age 40, who has come to Florida to con money from people by telling the lie that he can steal votes from the hand recount to help a candidate win. The thief tries to use the girls in his scam. The entire election crisis, step-by-step, is clearly depicted through the lives of the characters in Election 2000 Enchantment.
