MICHAEL MOORE TO PROTEST MISSING BALLOTS AT BROWARD ELECTIONS OFFICE
Miami Herald ^ | 10/28/04

Posted on 10/28/2004 9:34:48 AM PDT by areafiftyone

Michael Moore, the documentary film-maker who directed the anti-Bush movie Fahrenheit 9/11, is expected to deliver a protest speech outside the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office at 7 tonight.

Moore plans to discuss news reports that 58,000 absentee ballots are missing in Broward, according to his publicist, Terri Hardesty.

For months, both political parties and critics of the touch-screen machines used in Broward, Miami-Dade and 13 other counties have urged voters to use absentee ballots, which are on paper.

That led to a surge of absentee requests, topping more than 300,000 in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.

Broward's elections office, at 115 South Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, is resending about 76,000 absentee ballots to voters who say they asked but still haven't received them.

The elections office is still trying to discover why so many people haven't received the absentee ballots.

But with so little time before Tuesday's election, officials will mail out replacements -- thousands of them -- today. The ballots will be shipped via overnight mail to people outside the county, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said.

Moore, an Oscar-winning film-maker and number-one bestselling author, will surely bring more attention to Florida's pre-election voting woes.

He embarked on what he calls his ''Slacker Uprising Tour'' on Sept. 26 in Elk Rapids, Mi. The tour will visit 60 cities and 20 states in an effort to get millions of traditional non-voters to the polls on Nov. 2.

The tour will end on Election Day in Tallahassee, Florida.

I bet U.S. postal workers (afl-cio) threw them out. I wonder how many were going to republicans. I hope this blows up in Moore's face.

Oh, it's 58,000 now. Last I heard it was 30,000. Next thing you know it will be 380 tons. {insert Moore weight joke here}

Interesting, hunting season is almost upon us and a REALLY big fat pig stuffed and mounted in the living room would round out the room nicely.

That Big Blob will do just about anything to get face time on TV.

He loves to torture the good citizens of America like that.

Want to see something interesting. Type in Michael moore in the box on this site. It's the Michigan secretary of state ballot info site.

I realize that there may be more than one Michael Moore registered to vote in Michigan, but 300+ Michael Moores?

Moore should tour Florida. The guy is so repellent he can only drive up the Republican vote.
