Fortunately for West his district still retains paper ballots. Paper ballots and local human counts are the only way an election’s validity can be audited. In California the SEIU counts all the mailed ballots in rooms to which authorized monitors are usually not admitted. When computers count votes there is no audit trail and absolutely no way to verify votes. Without fixing our voting process we will never regain freedom.
Gee, I wonder why the problems haven’t been fixed.
True. In Ohio though there should be an audit trail of early voters because they were all required to complete cards with identifying information. No ID was required to verify what was written on the card. I wonder when those cards are destroyed? I wish someone with the resources to investigate fraud would go in and examine them. It shouldn't be too difficult to determine how many dead Ohioans voted early by comparing data on the cards with the SS death index. It wouldn't change vote tallies but it should stoke support for tougher voter ID laws.
