Skip to comments.HERE'S HOW TOUCHSCREENS KILLED ROMNEY VOTES. WHAT THE MACHINE EXPERT CLAIMS.
Posted on 11/14/2012 8:31:40 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A Chicago voting-machine tech is sounding the alarm, claiming he witnessed multiple error messages on the voting touch-screens this election but only in cases where people voted for Mitt Romney.
Steve Pickrum said he worked for Chicagos election system during the early voting and Election Day voting for the 2012 race.
As an equipment manager for the system, Pickrum said, he responded whenever there was a glitch with a voting machine.
On early voting, when I did work on the floor when voters needed help using the equipment, I was able to see the preference of the voter, and every time that I saw [a] voter voted for Romney a voter save failure message came up on the screen, he reported.
Then when he went on Election Day to cast his own vote, he picked Romney and experienced the same error message.
Pickrum said he worked at both the Matteson voting area as well as in Precinct 70, and although he discussed the anomalies with his boss, had not yet filed a formal report.
He said when he voted, he was told by a precinct worker to just go ahead and assume that his vote had been tabulated, despite the error message. But since he knew the operations of the machines, he asked the poll workers to check the vote report, and they found his vote had not been counted.
He insisted on completing his ballot on another machine, he told WND.
Curiously, he reported he never saw the error message when the voter was choosing Barack Obama.
Another poll worker, this one assigned at the University of Michigan, reported a list of irregularities, including that the precinct captain told her at one point, You go sit down, you're bothering me, when she was trying to observe the proceedings.

I hope that we correct this tyranny peacefully.
I guess this would explain what happened to the expected GOP turnout. Republican voters turned out, but votes weren’t counted.
I’m glad Florida got rid of the touchscreens after the 2000 debacle. The bubble-in and scan voting systems at least have a paper trail.
What I find disturbing is that people just readily accept these machines that are so obviously more amenable to fraud and outright rigging than voting that leaves a paper trail. What does it take for people to take a stand? I guess with the NFL, NBA, NHL, Kardashians, Real Housewives and American Idol we have our plates way too full for trivial matters.
The media will never make this an issue. It’s the tree falling in the forest.
he who owns machines owns elections...the scores dont match up. why are repubs not raising the roof about it?
so why the hell are the GOP not down in my south east part of the state and stopping this crap.
Obama never won this state, we are seeing massive corruption here and republican votes not being counted, hell every time we have a count and the future mayor and the Col get votes they stop the re-count.
Why is the woman who is in charge of this county not beebn arrested, .Where th ehell is my AG /GOV
Half (or so) of Romney votes went to 0 and there you have 0's *win*. They know it cannot be proven, though.
Dems know they cannot win on merits, therefore they must cheat, lie, steal and intimidate, whatever it takes, whatever works. The ends justify the means.....................
just sen this Murphy guy climing he won the election and making fun of a veteran called Col Allen West and the GOP are frigging where?
is there any stickers out there which mentions the massive rigging of this election or voter obama fraud?
Tyrants never go peacefully. A little bird tells me BamaClaus and his ComeYet crowd will not either.
we’ve seen that republican votes not counted here in FL and that even the woman in charge of elections in St Lucie county can;t explain these results.
Instead she gets people to form a barrier to not let the Col’s observers to see what is happening, , we then have just patial re-counts which ten stop when the reublicans thee start catching up, we saw how the Col was in the lead and then when it got to her county the results changed so much thta evenshe cannot explain how.
Now we have the Col’s challenger saying he’s the new congressman and not a frigging peep from our GOV/AG or Romney or even the national GOP.
A veteran thrown under the bus by a party he hoined and then cheated out of his seat by the other party.
I have no doubt at all that Romney won this election. It was stolen.
There was more than one cheat mechanism is those swing states.
Face it, they were even bringing in cheaters from other ststes in Wisconsin. So R$R had every reason to believe they were in play in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania.
Absentee ballots are paper, and paper is the only way a vote will count.
That would be racist and the MSM would not support them.
4 years of rigging this election and now seeing our side has no guts what so ever to stand up for our votes or Col Allen West then don;t ever count on us ever winning another election.
2016 will go Dem and after that it will be a one party country .
So for all those who say move on then wake up for once in their lives and see a bigger picture here and stop being afraid of being called a name by the left or the media and grow some balls
A paper ballot is no protection against a corrupt Election office willing to commit fraud. There are procedures to ensure that both paper and electronic systems are accurate, but, again, these procedures are useless in the face of internal election office corruption.
thats what i would like to know ... WHERE IS THE GOP???? they were more interested in defeating tea party members and still are
Be prepared to hear all about lots of voters staying home...now its..”they came and voted but the vote didn’t register”...the Bipartisan Oligarchy would rather we all stew in that mess..than having us all bothered, and deciding to investigate, about all the voters voting who never voted...
Listening to descriptions of how Democrats got out their ground game with superior ability to bring those to the polls who normally would never go by the commentators on Fox election night..made me realize..what they actually have done is track names that HAVE NOT VOTED IN MANY, MANY elections cycles....and vote them.
A well-funded project, county-by-county..to examine the names signed in at at the polls..and going out to find those individuals..youll find they were never physically at he polls..or they themselves never filled out the absentee ballot....or their names in the death registers.
The very LAST thing the Bipartisan Oligarchy want or need is any semblance of Constitutional Federal Govmt or a clean vote.
Both those are up to We the People to cram it down their throats so hard in DC they will, someday, never do otherwise.
Absent a clean vote.....We the People are being taxed without representation..Ask George III how well that worked out!
Has all noticed how the GOP pissed over our candidates , Sarah, Newt, Col Allen West, the woman who ran against Reid in 2008 and a few others.
Has all noticed how they all had one thing in common?
All of them were not part of the elitist old guard and stood for the average person.
The likes of the Peggy Noonan, Charles Krauthammer, Cantor etc are the problems why we have a cowardly group of snotty nosed elitist out of touch party.
Get Sarah, Col, Michelle Bachmann, Jim Demint, NM Gov and other woman Sarah help get elected to stay in power or get pwoer and force these pathetic spineless elitist snotty nosed cowardly only care about themselves fools out of there and lets have a party which can fight lke Pelosi does.
Romney/Ryan, please Ryan was the bone to us like Sarah was but really they wanted Romney and if they coudl fight half the way they fought Newt then we wuld ahve won the rigged election
We howl about widespread vote rigging and nothing is done.
Conservatives need a political party that WILL stand up to such skulduggery. We don’t have such a party now.
BINGO..we have a WINNER!
I think we would not have been able to overcome the rigged election no matter who we had running.
They were not going to let us win, period.
The time for growing balls is past. We needed them BEFORE all the fraudulent voting took place. Now drunken Boehner wants us to give Obama everything he wants including amnesty. At least with amnesty, the DNC can save a lot of time and money
as they won’t have to rig elections anymore.
Were there many “Save Failures” around the entire nation? If so, did many voters complain?
And if there were about 3 million “missing” Romney votes, were there at least 3 million touchscreen voting machines?
Of course the election was stolen. The dimocrats only need rig 5 or 6 states, if that many.
Even Newsweek magazine said for Barry Obama to “hit the road.”
Forget repackaging of the Republican message. IF the vote fraud issue isn’t dealt with the dims never lose another vote-EVER.
There were several books published about this about fifteen years ago, and numerous discussions on Free Republic. One book “Vote Scam” explained how vulnerable to fraid the machines are. It related how mschines failed tests snd how experts could hack the machines. We conspiracy theorists on Free Republic have known about this for years.
Republican politicians have been disgustingly negligent for years in not informing themselves about the unreliable machines and demanding paper ballots. No excuse for Republican candidates not screaming fraud and demanding paper ballots.
We have a reliable honest system here in Wyoming using paper ballots marked with a black marking pen furnished to the voter and then deposited into a locked counting machine.
If there is any question about the count, the ballots are in the machine and can be taken out and counted by hand.
Diebold and other voting machine manufactures try to sell these machines for elections but the machines are unnecessary. All you need is the ballot counting machine.
How hard could it be to get some software expert to place some innocuous sub-routine in the machine’s code to change the voting results.
This election was well within the margin of corruption IMO.
they fought Sarah, newt like there was no tomorrow and now throw the Col under the bus but they can;t even say anything about an election whch was rigged and stolen.
just wait till the RNC, GOP calls me up. I;ve already sent them mail and called them to tell them what Ithink.
Perhaps because the GOPe did not want to win? The fraud was committed in every swing state. Voter fraud of this magnatude takes the cooperation of both parties. Do you really think the Repubs wanted to have to deal with Obamacare? They know we're going over a fiscal cliff and nothing can stop it. We're already past the tipping point. All they care about is looking out for No. 1. To he!! with the rest of us. They're going to need this Nazi regime in place when the SHTF to brutally control the masses. Otherwise, they risk a redo of the French Revolution.
Who would be brave enough to put one on their automobile?.............
a good programmer wouldn’t have even let the error message be seen, just count the romney vote for obama. if the programmer was any good, the tech would never have suspected a thing.
Ever since the hanging chads of 2000, in CA I’ve voted on the inking cardboard strip and they were pushed into a locked counting machine. Now there is a worker looking on a screen on the other side of this machine to ensure your vote is registered or whatever.
indeed, and that is why the Dem counties always report last.
They wait for the republican conties to report and then the Dem counties know how many votes they need in order to win.
I watched my states results coming in and Broward woudl not report even though the panhandle was still voting.
They waited and waited and have been doing this ever since they saw the election not got their way in 2000.
I think we all understand that the election was rigged what grates me on top is how a veteran is just pissed on and how the party which is supposed to be for us just pisses over our votes , our money, our efforts, our support etctoo
“I hope that we correct this tyranny peacefully.”
Once they start rigging elections so that we no longer have the ability to correct it at the ballot box, what box do we have left? What choice will we be forced to make?
The odds of a peaceful solution grow longer every day.
What ia the”inking cardboard strip”?
we’re about to see millions of illegals come flooding in now and states like FL, AZ, CO,VA will turn solid blue,
NC,TX will now trend blue and all the elft needs is NY, CA for nearly a 100 and then if they get TX, FL it is game over but alas our side or the cowards anyway say , lets just move on we don;t want to be called a name.
is it any wonder why the GOP fights Sarah, newt, West like mad but wants Hatch etc to stay in.
Thye had their great country, they had their lives in a great place to live but some of us have another 40 to 50 years to go and we have small childfen growing up in this mess
All votes should be on paper ballots and as you turn it in a running tabulation kept that the voter and everyone else can see.
There is absolutely no reason that this cannot be done.
me, I always do, to hell with the NAZI party and the cowards on our side.
We need to speak out not be silences, being silent only helps the left to bring us more into socialism which the socialist workers party wants
Col West has opened the door.
We must fight election fraud.
It falls on We the People.

>> These electi... http://bit.ly/Zzam8Y
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 wont 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!
Join us!! See the 'BARACK OBAMA FRAUD 2012- (MUST READ- MUST GO VIRAL!)' thread- Here
Romney was sure he was going to win and Obama acted as though he he knew he'd lose.
My MA town voted for a GOP president for the first time in the 46 years I've been here. My sister's town did, too. We have paper ballots.
get the votes, see who voted and then cross those names off with the voter registraion rolls.
The GA media did this back in 2008 for FL and found obama did not win FL.
I gurantee that if those 50 /50 split votes which were supposed to think were checked then they woudl find the military votes went for Romney
Just check where the results really do not add up like in WI, FL, VA, OH, .
WOW, The info is out there and yet the GOP is ignoring it.
There are several things that could be done to prevent this kind of mess in the future: All states need to have photo ID in place. Same day registration needs to be banned. Electronic voting needs to be replaced with serialized paper ballots that are marked in ink. There needs to be a time and date stamp on the ballot when it goes through the machine, this would be in conjunction with a time / date on a sign in for registered voters (no more checkmarks), Purple finger ink. Video monitoring of all polling places. Poll watchers have authority to shut down voting should anything questionable happen.
Inside the ballot machine there needs to be a locked container for the ballots with a chain of custody attached, Everyone with access to that container will sign the COC and if any irregularities are found with those ballots everyone on that COC will be subject to persecution and no less that 25 years in prison or execution.
Time to start a massive, noisy registration exodus? Constitution Party is where I’m leaning. Again. After I tried getting in with the Rs here in Illinois. They don’t really want you if you don’t do a lot of boot-licking first. That’s why we get who we get. I’m speaking as a would-be candidate. Anyway, just a thought ...
” some of us have another 40 to 50 years to go and we have small children growing up in this mess”
Yeah, I look at my friends in church with all of the three and 4 year olds....
