Massive crowds for Romney, not massive crowds for 0bama, FOR STARTERS..
Massive, systematic fraud.
I worked the election. Our state requires id, although the loopholes are so huge that requirement stopped exactly zero people in my precinct. What I find interesting is the logistics of getting 4000 people through the check in process during the 13 hours of voting in Virginia.
If you divide the time by the number of possible voters, with three computerized poll books you have 40 seconds to check in a voter. Voter has to state his name and address, loudly enough for a partisan watcher to hear. The poll worker has to find the name, mark it off twice, deal with any pop up notices to get further information, and hand out a ballot in that time. Doable, but barely, and this pace has to go on without a stop. I was thankful we only had a 75% turnout, once we got thru the morning backlog we could relax a little.
The weak point is the check in process. If a poll worker wants to commit fraud, there is no recourse. If we find precincts processing people faster than two per minute, I would suspect the workers are just checking the first available name off the list, no matter what name is given. Should a likely Romney voter show up, just state that they show as already voted, and if they insist, have them vote provisionally. That would be a vote never to be counted. As long as ballots are handed out as names are checked off, there is no discrepancy with the totals. And if the same people keep coming thru the line, all is good until the last voter is checked off. And if you have time, and if you have election officials who will say nothing, hand out more ballots than you have voters, and when you clean out the counter machine, pick out that many ballots marked the wrong way, call them spoiled ballots, and since your counts will now be off, wait for the recount to scan just the ballots you want counted. Maybe someone can think of a way to make the ballots come out right with the counter in this scenario. Maybe resetting the counter, faking the datetime stamp, and re scanning just the ballots you want counted.
I am sure others can think of more ways to cheat the system. It is hard work for an honest person to think of ways to cheat, so others are going to have to take over now with more ideas. Thanks.
2011 census estimates pop of 1270294 with 22.3% under 18 which brings the total eleible voters to 987,019.
Out of that 987,019 of voting age 927,996 are registered to vote. 94%. with 617,141 actually voting according to the boards site.
Hamilton,montgomery, franklin county all look similar.
the math just looks funny to me.
