Voter turnout 64.5 percent in Nevada
Las Vegas Sun ^ | Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010 | 3:19 p.m.

(AP) Predictions of an almost two-thirds Nevada voter turnout nearly came true amid intense interest in Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid's contest against Republican Sharron Angle, officials said Wednesday.

Some 64.5 percent of 1.1 million registered voters statewide cast ballots in Tuesday's midterm election, the Nevada secretary of state's office said, compared with a turnout of more than 59 percent of the state's 990,000 registered voters in the 2006 midterm election.

In Las Vegas, Clark County elections chief Larry Lomax reported that more than 63 percent of registered voters cast ballots. Almost 40 percent voted early or by mail. Turnout in the state's most populous county was up 7 percent from 2006.

In Reno, the Washoe County Registrar of Voters Dan Burk put turnout at just under 64 percent of almost 221,000 registered voters. Just under 38 percent voted early or by mail.

Results were unofficial. The Nevada Supreme Court was scheduled to certify statewide election results on Nov. 23.

Michigan flipped the governor and house to all red with 45% turnout. Those numbers in Nevada a pure fraud.

I would bet that the “DEAD VOTE” percentage was much higher than that.

Fraud and union thuggery came through.

Secretary of State is a demonic-rat. It’s over. Reid won.
Sharron Angle conceded.

Well, the vote turnout was that high. Actual number of voters was probably ten to fifteen percent lower. SEIU knows how to manufacture votes dontchaknow.

“Almost 40 percent voted early or by mail.”

The GOP should demand a special prosecutor to examine every single one of those particular votes against the voter registration records; and the voter registration records checked against the social security administration’s death records.

It was a stolen election no doubt. How can you have 9 point swing on a single day. Moreover, the voting machines and the power outage. Everything else was going Republican. No way do I believe for one second that election was legitimate. Anyone with half a brain knows this.

That's not where the problem lies.

Say...I am a registered Republican. I send in an absentee ballot. Mine winds up in the basket. Do it a few times....

There's no check on this absentee system. It's a sure cheat method.

GO TO YOUR POLLING PLACE. AT LEAST YOU KNOW YOUR VOTE GOT REGISTERED.

Well, this one is beyond dragging in a box of ballots "forgotten" in the trunk of a car or "found" in the janitor closet.

I am curious if a real investigation into the bizarre results can be undertaken. Also, who could be held responsible?

This instance is so flagrant that it just might be the one to be subjected to a real investigation. If the low end operatives that rigged voting machines and did who knows what else can be pined down and are looking at HARD prison time they just might roll over on some "unexpected" high level dems.

This is the one to expend a major effort on.

For some historical perspective that these Nevada turnout numbers are hard to swallow. Here are presidential turnouts in a 60 year time frame:

1932, 52% ; 1936, 57%; 1940, 59%; 1944, 56%; 1948, 51%; 1952, 62%; 1956, 59%; 1960, 63%; 1964, 62%, 1968, 61%, 1972, 55%; 1976, 54%; 1980, 53%; 1984, 53%; 1988, 50%; 1992; 54%, and 1996; 49%.

  This is proof it was rigged.

  No - the high turnout and the favorable vote for Harry Reid was due to his extremely high unpopularity... no - wait - that doesn't make sense....

What is sad is knowing what we know and that probably nothing will be done about it. I am sorry, but you don’t 10 point swings over night when everything is going the other way. No question it was stolen.

Likely you are right. They just let them get away with it.

Angle certainly saw it coming.

Another factor to consider is that the population of the state has declined with the economic downturn. With the highest unemployment rate in the country, many people have simply not stuck around. Meanwhile, few are moving here. So, it is especially curious to me that such a high number voted, let alone voted for Harry Reid.

With 38% mail in you can guarantee that it was rigged.

How is it that O’Realie and Hannuty were not all over this. If it smells like a fish it is a fish. Hairy FISH Reid needs to be wrapped in obamawrap. O where O where has my country gone? The Socialist Unions have taken it away from me. Time to bury another SEIU leader at the corner stone of some shovel ready Obummer project.

The exit polls showed something like 55% of voters didn’t like Reid. Dirty Harry would do anything to win.

But voting machines in Nevada now are designed and maintained to discern at distance that Harry Reid is good for a particular voter. Even if said voter acknowledge this even subconsciously. Even if said voter openly despises Harry Reid. Even if said voter didn’t recognize bothering to cast a vote.

Aah, the wonders of modern technology!

To defeat serial elections thief Harry Reid six years hence, the Republicans need a candidate vastly more popular than Sharron Angle with an insurmontable majority of votes cast by live, registered, eligible non-military voters, say perhaps 85-15. After discernment, processing, and counting, perhaps the Republican might come majority that even Harry Reid would concede.

How to cheat in mail-in elections in 5 easy steps:

1. It helps to be Democrat..

2. So that you can make friends among the 80% of postal workers who are sympathetic to your cause.....

3. Find out which ones do mail-pick-ups in Republican towns and neighborhoods.....

4. Tell each of them to throw away a lot of the ballots they collect (but not so many as to make the missing numbers too obvious). If you throw away 10% in all GOP areas, you will reduce their numbers much faster than reducing your own, changing the end result by 4-6% .

5. Better yet, do not actually tell the P.O. workers to do this, just set it up as a wink-wink joke so you will have plausible deniability.

Yes, I did live for 27 years in Cook County,Illinois, the ORIGINAL HOME of the easily manipulated Butterfly Ballot in which a narrow loss can be quickly turned into a narrow victory (all you need is a sympathetic judge, and a party-registration map, so you know where to cherry-pick.).

The GOP needs to take a stand on this, right now.

Why would the GOP stand on this when they wouldn't even stand with their candidate, Sharron Angle? Two of the top republicans, Bill Raggio (NV Senate stalwart) and Reno Mayor Bob Cashell both came out very publicly against Sharron. Says a lot about the NV GOP leadership (if you can call it that).

One thing that I found odd as I was watching the local returns: Brian Sandoval, the governor-elect, was running 20 percentage points ahead of his contender Rory Reid (daddy Reid's son). Brian did win, but by only 11 percentage points. Polls aren't accurate, but *that* far off??!! Sharron was also up in every poll by 3-5 points and she ends up losing by 5 points....?? My wife and I aren't the conspiracy type, but we both were very suspicious last night as we watched the numbers coming in.
