Voting fraud

A bunch of stories are coming in about rampant voter fraud.
From Las Vegas, Nevada station KVVU FOX5:

Nevada Voters Complain Of Problems At Polls
Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County's electronic voting machines.

Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid's name was already checked.

Ferrara said she wasn't alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

“Something's not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that's a fluke. Two, that's strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that's wrong.”

From the New Bern, North Carolina Sun Journal:

Voter reports problem with ballot machine
A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”

M. Ray Wood, Craven County Board of elections chairman, issued a written statement saying that the elections board is aware of isolated issues and that in each case the voter was able to cast his or her ballot as desired.

ACORN is alive and meddling — from the Washington Examiner:

New ACORN effort is mobilizing voters, run by woman indicted for violating election laws
Matthew Vadum over at Human Events reports ACORN is alive and well, though operating under a different name:
Disturbingly, Project Vote, ACORN’s scandal-plagued voter registration and mobilization division, remains open for business. Project Vote has been part of the ACORN family since at least 1992 when Barack Obama ran a successful voter drive in Illinois.

Although legally separate entities, in practice the two are the same, as the congressional testimony of former ACORN/Project Vote employee Anita MonCrief can attest. They share office space, employees, and budgets. Project Vote continues to operate out of ACORN’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.

Even worse, its voter drive is being run by Amy Busefink, an ACORN employee under indictment in Nevada for violating election laws. It might be understandable for an employer not to fire an employee until she is actually convicted of a crime, but this is ridiculous. Busefink should not be running a voter drive.
Busefink and another ACORN employee, Christopher Edwards, were charged with by the state of Nevada with “26 felony counts of voter fraud and 13 of providing unlawful extra compensation to those registering voters.” Edwards pleaded guilty and the trial of Busefink and ACORN is set to begin November 26.

From the Dallas, Texas Dallas Observer:

More About That Voting Machine “Glitch”
Friday morning we had that item about computer programmer Don Relyea's run-in with that touch-screen voting machine at the Audelia Road Library, where a vote for Gov. Rick Perry appeared to morph into a straight-ticket Green Party vote. Now, see, Dallas County Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet told us he though the thing looked phony, echoing others who insist Relyea used his thumb to change his vote. Sherbet also wasn't pleased Relyea shot a video inside the voting booth — only because it's against the law.

Well, Marketplace picks up the story today, and while Sherbet's still not buying it — he tells the American Public Media show, “It looks like a hoax” — J. Alex Halderman, an assistant prof of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan, isn't ready to dismiss the WTF so quickly. Says he: “This is a known class of problems with touch-screen voting machines.” When asked what could cause this, Halderman says: “A mistake in the logic of the ballot.” The jokes write themselves. Listen to the broadcast here.

Finally, Da Techguy has a list of additional discrepancies:

When you can’t persuade voters Cheat

As the Big Red Wave continues to grow some odd coincides seem to be talking place:

In Arizona:
Here’s what the article doesn’t tell you, by a source in the Yuma County Recorder’s Office:

* These 3000 voter registration forms were all dropped off at once by the one group on the deadline to turn in voter registration forms.
* Almost all of the registrations were for the Democratic Party, a statistical improbability at best.
* Today, these same 3000 newly registered voters — as a group — had papers dropped off at the Yuma Recorder’s office requesting to be signed up for the permanent early voters list… which means the ballots will be mailed early, with no accountability.
* The Yuma Recorder’s office is checking the voter registration forms and have found that already more than 65% of them are invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc.
Well its not as Mi Familia is the same as the SEIUoh wait:
Mi Familia Vota is one of two groups that reportedly registered thousands of new voters in and around Yuma last week.

Mi Familia Vota’s Arizona HQ address is 3707 N. 7th Street, Suite 100 in Phoenix

The address of SEIU Arizona is…um, 3707 N. 7th Street, Suite 100 in Phoenix.

Maybe it’s a really, really big suite?

And a bunch more after these. These stories are not isolated and the attempts are so blatant that there is going to be a lot of interesting litigation once voting is finished. FOIA inquiries for the machine logs and voter rolls.

These progressive idiots don't realize what they have awakened…
