California's Uncounted Mail-In Ballots Reach Thousands

California's Uncounted Mail-In Ballots Reach Thousands November 13, 2012

SACRAMENTO (KABC) -- There are plenty of vote-by-mail ballots in California that won't count in the final November tally, largely because of postmarks and signatures. There's a group out to change some of those ballot rules, hoping to boost voter turnout.

Thousands of vote-by-mail ballots throughout California are sitting in county registrar offices right now and will never be counted.

Some signatures on ballot envelopes don't match the one on the voter registration card. Other ballots are from previous elections. But the most common reason a ballot doesn't get counted: it is not in the county's hands by 8 p.m. on Election Night. An Election Day postmark is not good enough.

Many counties don't notify voters their ballots won't be counted.

"I think it's a dirty little secret that we're keeping from voters, quite frankly, this vote-by-mail ballots that are too late to get counted," said Kim Alexander, founder and president, California Voter Foundation.

In 2008, nearly half a million ballots were not counted in the three statewide elections that year.

Los Angeles County currently has more than 6,000 late ballots, while Santa Clara County has nearly 2,000. Sacramento County's count is approaching 1,500.

Voter turnout could actually be raised if late ballots were included.

Typical banana republic BS. We all should be so proud.

Time to go back to paper ballots. Only one ballot per voter and EVERYONE GETS TO VOTE ON ELECTION DAY. If that don't work for you, TOUGH ****! You probably don't need to vote anyway.

Noticed a rash of voting threads late tonight.
Maybe we’re lighting a fire under them.

For an excellent lesson in why "early voting" is so pernicious and strongly favors Democrats, read Jack Cashill's article The Real Lesson of the Election yesterday in American Thinker. You are right; for fair elections, we need to go back to everybody voting on election day.

I think the pub party should get more latino candidates and I think they should get more asian candidates too....

but unless we get uniform election rules that greatly restrict the outright robbery that was this past election, all the latinos and asians in the world won't mean a damn thing...

I wonder how it's routed.

I am sure there are good conservative Asians and Mexicans etc (I mean citizens of those ethnicities of course) but the election fraud AND good ol’ boy inner circle RINO crap has to go.

The more people read these details, the more they realize that the election was indeed stolen, and that train of thought leads them to realize that if this election was illegitimate, any future one will be, too.

And then the horror starts...

So, info is KEY.

I’m a conservative in Commie-fornia, so I always get an absentee ballot, fill it out and drop it off at my local polling place on Election Day.

whats worse is they send out the ballots too late for the mail round trip. My daughter’s ballot didn’t arrive at her dorm until the afternoon of Nov 2nd.

In that case she takes her vote-by-mail ballot to a polling place, surrenders it and then votes. Not a complicated process.

Read the article. It’s most interesting. If the situation continues, the Republicans will never win another national election. My situation will be okay no matter who wins, because I have a federal pension. I am as helpless as the rest of you in stopping the juggernaut that is our national debt. Our kids and grandkids will be the losers. But as the nation goes irretrievably downhill, I figure I can at least keep my head above water. I’d like to see more drilling for gas and oil, but if it’s not to be, what can I as a helpless citizen do about it?

The most famous statement on voting: “It does not matter who votes...it matters on who counts the votes.”

I used to do this until I found out that even though you turn it in at the polling place, it gets thrown in with all the other absentee votes.

The absentee vote counting is manned by union (SEIU) members so I think there is too much chance to diddle with them.

What I did in this election is to "surrender" my mail-in ballot. They marked it as void and then gave me a regular ballot, which I marked there and they put it with the rest of the vote on election day ballots. These get counted by machine and I think has the least chance of getting stolen.

If I can't make it to the poll on election day, I can mail in my ballot.

That being said the Rats are brazenly stealing the CA election. Their last gambit was to institute online registration with mail-in voting. IIRC, they said they registered about a million 'voters.' I wonder how many of them are Russian mafia hired by the Rats to hack the system.

Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people don’t trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".

Col West has opened the door.

We must fight election fraud.

It falls on ‘We the People’.

Excerpt from Mitt Romney's reference:

These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it won’t do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below...

We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.

We must act NOW.

Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.

We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....

We are FReepers. We must fight!

Those who shrug and accept this atrocity without a fight are not worthy to be called Freepers!
