Posted on 11/07/2006 1:18:18 PM PST by The Blitherer
From a connected Keystoner:
We all prepared for this years elections to be heated, particularly in PA with so many contested races. But even with teams of lawyers on the ground, I dont think anyone anticipated what is going on right now. I expect this will be THE national story by 5pm today if not sooner.
37 counties in Pennsylvania use the ESS & Ivotronic.
These machines are experiencing massive failures.
If you vote for one candidate, the opposing candidate lights up.
Rendell votes are counting for Swann. Santorum votes are counting for Casey and so on
County Boards of Elections or the PA Dept of State are refusing to take action.
They dont see the disaster that is coming.
Hundreds if not thousands of voters are alerting the authorities of these problems.
This may warrant a revote in these 37 counties.
I voted in SE PA - didn't see any problems...
Didn't notice any of this in Allegheny County.
any word on what turnout is yet in the T area?
Lemme guess, the software is from microsoft.
This was NJ and I was very sorry to see the old mechanical ,achines replaced. It is my understanding they were the most accurate system possible. I think it was absolute insanity to switch to electronic voting.
Partially owned by Hugo Chavez?
I voted in Bucks County this morning and saw no problems. A poll watcher, friend of my boss, just called in to say that there is heavy traffic, but he said nothing about machines not working.
Our electronic voting machine, which reads paper ballots, was broken today, so the ballots will be counted by hand. This will slow the arrival of the results from this voting district, and the weird lights in the gymnasium did not help the situation--guaranteed.
Sweetness and I voted via iVotronic today with absolutely no problems. The poll workers, whom I know, said it was brisk and smooth.
This has been a major concern of mine. If we discredit the voting process, then what next?
Are you in a red bit or a blue bit? Just curious :)
I had no probelms in SE PA. In and out with moderate turnuot.
Chavez is connected with the third company, Sequoia.
Millions of us think the same thing. This is a real problem facing our Nation right now!
