I’ll eat crow if I’m wrong, but Obama WILL NOT win in NC.
No way. No how.
And we’re going to have a Republican Governor too.
First - That the Dems are voting for a straight Dem ticket.
Second....That Repub votes won't wind up in a dumpster.
There is great potential for cheating in this early voting.
Ha! Got me there.
All voter registration records here in New York is kept at the Board of Elections. When you originally registered you could pick a party to be registered with. Democratic, Republican, Conservative, Working Families (ACORN), Independent, Green, write in or I do not wish to enroll in party.
I believe to for a Party to be on the ballot in November it must receive a certain number of votes in prior years.
The information is available for a (25 cents per page)charge that contains Name. Address, Sex, Age, and party. You are on the list if you voted in 3 of the last 4 elections.
Campaigns use this information to contact likely votes during canvassing.
The problem is...How many Repub ballots can be thrown away and no one would ever know. Inside job.......imagine that...these “workers” are all political appointees
We KNOW absolutely...that in 2004, a box of ballots were found in the trunk of a car, in a cabinet in a goverment office.....
Some people can’t vote on election day. For example, my son is an election judge who must be at his assigned polling place at 5:30AM and can’t leave until the polls close. If he couldn’t vote in advance, he wouldn’t get to vote. He voted yesterday at the election headquarters in Louisville just as if it was election day.
That is why there needs to be an 'audit trail' of some sort...
At a recent Pubbie mtg in our county, we were told that on election day in 2008, McLame won the state of VA...what put Obummer over the top was the absentee votes...hmmmm!
And AA is for African American...not the US Bond Rating! Obummer got us down graded to -AA...in case that confused!
sorry, AA stands for african-american. 26% of votes in north carolina in 2008 were AA and I believe it was around 21% in 2010 in a good republican year.
I’m here in Richmond, Virginia. Any stats on the number of people voting early in Virginia in 2008?
Just fun with numbers...
I don’t have any...not that big of a wonk...but I’m sure you could get them.
I just thought that was an interesting stat given at this mtg....
The spkr was a guy from the Leadership Institute which is a conservative org that trains people in campaigning, etc. Founded by Morton Balckwell.
Well, we know that these numbers CAN"T be right, because the MSM polls predict Dems voting in a record number this year, and Repub turn out depressed below any historical average.
what’s up in Iowa?? is this a concern???
and remember that voting in the nh gubernatorial primary to replace a retiring democrat was 54% for a republican candidate vs 46% for a democrat. That’s a very red shade of purple.
I believe dems always vote early in IA going back to 2004 and 2008. That does not seem concerning to me.
I work in a polling place on election day and I can vote there since it is my precinct. Is your son’s precinct different from his polling place?
And why on earth can he not leave during the day? He has to bring his lunch? Or are they that busy.
LS (and LdSentinal) are doing great analyses of OH absentee data. The money quote from LS today: “Based on this, it would appear Romney is back up to Bush levels, and perhaps slightly above in a couple of cases”. Bush won OH in 2000 and 2004.
