Ohio Election Results Live Thread
Ohio Secretary of State ^ | 11/04/08 | TonyInOhio

Posted on 11/04/2008 3:54:25 PM PST by TonyInOhio

I'll be posting results and analysis on this thread as the Ohio returns come in. There are a couple of wild cards in play this year. First, our new early voting period means that some early results will be skewed, as it appears that a significant proportion of Democrats, especially African Americans, voted early. This will give an advantage to Democrats in the early numbers.

Secondly, a significant number of ACORN registrations were determined to be invalid (like 1/3) and so many of those registratnts, if the vote, will be give provisional ballots. These ballots will only be counted if the regular and early vote margin is too close to call.

Who votes early and why? And, who works so they have to vote later?

This is FoxNews’ map. It’s live and continually updated.

You can view the whole map or click on a state.

Just move your cursor over a state, and it’s data is revealed.

I’ve got it open on my screen at all times.

Strong turn out in rural and suburbs and lower turn out today in cities. Perhaps because of early voting? I think McCain would win Ohio with actual - genuine - bonafide voters - but ACORN’s corruption of the system is a wild card.

I agree with you completely. The fraud vote is the thing that is hard to know how pervasive it is.

I voted early, have for the last 8 years. mostly because the issues are long reading and I like going over the ballot at the house. However, it’s obvious that the dems can’t be trusted, just like the soviets...when the communists got 100% of the vote.
time to get rid of early voting and only voting on election day...

Agree. No early voting and absentee only for those out of town. If it isn’t important enough for you to go vote on the Constitutionally mandated day, you shouldn’t have a voice.

LS, our well-connected and dashing GOP official guy, posted an excellent UPDATE FROM OHIO earlier today. In short, Republican leaning precincts and counties from around the state are showing huge increases in turnout.

Not too worried about Ohio.

Many of us who vote by absentee method are disabled, or unable to wait in long lines for other health reasons. I know you concerns, but eliminating the absentee would have eliminated my ability to vote.

Don’t intend to make it tough for the disabled. Most of the absentee voters I know didn’t want the hassle of going today to vote. I’d certainly make a concession for disabled voters.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com has a great tally board, but it lists only percentages, as does Fox, CBS, CNN.

Anyone know of a nationwide tallyboard which lists raw votes — maybe even with drill down by state? (Probably hoping for too much.)

For some comic relief, here is a hillarious video made by my friend Ted in Pittsburgh. He’s a talented musician. He put together a heavy metal song called “Ridin’ Dirty sung by his new lead singer, the “Reverend Jeremiah Wright”

It really gets good at about 3 min and 30 seconds.

That wasn’t the deal. You gave me $20, a pack of Marlboros and a Big Mac and said that Osama would solve all my problems if I stood there like an a-hole all day to vote for him 6 times.

I am so, so pissed over what happened to me today when voting.

I had to go provisional ballot.....

I called the BOL ans staated that I was just married and had to change my DL name to my married name. THe BOL said no problem, if your address did not change, don’t worry about it.

Went to vote (the poll workers were great, most had red blazers on) I had to do prov ballot.

In OH? A woodchuck can vote...

I am so upset.

I talked to the BOL tonight at the precint I vote at, she told me that someone gave me wrong info.

Hell just called PA

sob...bad

Nothing we could do with the welfare capital of America. If somehow. we could get to 40% in the county, I will dance a jig, then I’ll dance again cause that means we win the state.

Cuyahoga County is what it is now. Back in the days when George Voinovich saved this city, we all worked for a living and less than 10% of the population got paid not to work. Weekends were Saturday and Sunday.

Flash forward to today. 25 years of Democratic monopoly. Manufacturing long gone. tax rates through the roof, most of us still work, but now 25-30% of working aged abled bodied people are getting paid not to work. Weekends now start at 12:01AM Monday and lasts till midnight Sunday.The worst offenders are the ones who laugh at the suggestion to get a job.

How does this change. Leadership changes and people with the nerve to say enough is enough.
