Skip to comments.Lack of ballots at NM (heavily GOP) precinct
Posted on 11/07/2006 8:43:47 AM PST by Cooter
Just heard on the radio that a heavily republican precinct in NM district 1 (Wilson / Madrid race) had only 150 printed ballots this morining. As of 7 AM, there were over 200 people in line to vote. This is a mostly GOP-favorable precinct. The poll workers were actucally turning people away, telling them they'll call them (yeah, right) when new ballots are available. Heather Wilson was interviewed and she said it is criminal to have so few ballots (150 for over 2000 registered voters) for this polling location (this problem wasn't reported for Dem-leaning locations, of course). Lawyers for both sides are are on scene.
They don't have copy machines ?
They don't have the touch screen in that area?
Keep it up we aren't going to let the Democrats steal this one. They've lied, they've disparaged our troops and country and they defended terrorists. It is time to use whatever means necessary to stop the infidels.
They use paper ballots with an optical scanner.
Criminal doesn't even begin to describe what these people are.
Those in charge of this precinct should be arrested on suspicion of vote fixing.
One day I hope we (the worlds only superpower) will get this whole voting thing hammered out. I know it's only been a few hundred years now, but these things take time.
I blame man bear pig for staring all this in 2000.
Since the media has told us that ALL voter fraud is commimtted by Republicans, this must be another case of the Stupid Party defrauding itself.
No wonder Democrats think tehy'r gong to pick up something like 100 seats.
Sounds like the GOP Precinct Judge did not do their job.
What yahoos predicted a 7.5% turn-out and on what set of facts? This should require a detailed explanation by the person who made the decision - I will surmise that he or she is a Democrat.
I can't wait to see this on CNN tonight. / sarcasm
Anyone know the zip code for that area? I think 1 888dem-vote needs to be alerted to this. Maybe they can speed some ballots over to that heavily republican area fast.
it's New Mexico... i'm sorry to any NM Freepers... but my family is from there... and i still have lots of family who live there... i've heard many sleezy, slimey backroom, political stories... i even have a cousin who admits to paying off a judge to get a light sentence when he shot a man for staring at his wife... no lie... (btw--he served no time)...
Exactly, it's Algore's fault and that's no joke.
Oh, we have voting down to a science. The problem is that science can be deconstructed by those interested. Like Democrats attempting vote fraud.
Looks like the cementaries and the prisons got most of the ballots in this state....
NM is very poor and rural.
You forgot Indian reservations.
(Of course, most Indians I know are so conservative, they make FR look like DU. The tribal leaders, in contrast, are so corrupt they make Jesse Jackson look like the virgin Mary).
