Boulder County Canvass Board Votes Not To Certify November Election Abstract
Exerpt of Press Release from Boulder County Republican Party ^ | 26-November 2012

Posted on 11/28/2012 6:01:37 AM PST by flamberge

This morning, a majority of the citizen-led Boulder County, Colorado Canvass Board, a legally mandated election oversight board, voted not to certify the Abstract of Votes prepared by Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall.

The members who voted not to certify were denied an opportunity to publicly explain the reasons for their decision to the other members of the Board. The members of the Board who disagreed with the majority decision declined to review the majority's Secretary of State required report. Those same members had also declined invitations from the majority to join in discussions of potential problem resolution and report and recommendation drafting sessions.

According to Board member Dan Martin, "we were presented with voluminous information at the very end of the process, including last Friday night at 7:00 p.m. That information included a Reconciliation Report that clearly showed that more ballots had been counted than ballots cast in 40 precincts."

Board member Russ Boehm stated, "The Official Abstract showed no such precinct problems." Martin added, "Today is the deadline for our certification decision, and no explanation has been given for this anomaly, so I had no choice but to vote against certifying a clearly flawed report."

We also are distressed that authorized Watchers from all parties and issue committees were prevented from exercising their legal rights to witness and verify the steps of the election [.....]

Citizen oversight of the provisional ballot processing was prohibited by election officials."

We need more of this. Lots and lots more. If we don’t nip this in the bud now, we might was well just cancel the 2016 elections and save everybody a lot of time and trouble.

Unless some *very* heavy action is taken by Republicans soon, they won’t win the WH in 2016 with JC himself on the ballot.

And we all know they don’t have the balls to do what is required.

The Dems will win in 2016 running Alfred E Newman.

The man on the street better quit fantasizing about winning the WH and start planning his survival in the new Amerika. 2012 was not a free election and 2016 will not be either.

Right! So don’t expect the potential fraud to be in The 0ne’s favor or for it to be found that it was Dems doing it.

Way to go, Boulder County, Colorado Canvass Board!

We need more of these honest, fearless citizen members in the canvass boards!

What we can do is get into these boards to root out voter fraud from the ground up, county by county..........

“They were looking for reasons not to certify the election,” Hall said. “It’s disappointing that the issues they focused on were outside the purview of the canvass board.”

So the Canvass Board does not have standing, according to the person who will ignore their concerns.

Gee, I can't imagine why this would draw their focus:

That information included a Reconciliation Report that clearly showed that more ballots had been counted than ballots cast in 40 precincts."

This is right up there with the outlanding "let's move on" claims around Benghazi. Right out of the liberal playbook. It's all the fault of the watchdogs for barking.

Hall said that happened because some polling places served multiple precincts, and some voters were accidentally given ballots for other precincts. When their ballots were counted in the appropriate precincts, that created the appearance of extra ballots.""""""...........

"ACCIDENTALLY".....no way. How do these people live with themselves, no matter what they do they fall back on accidentally or some other on the spot made up statement.

Accidentally? and they will say every poll worker is honest upright etc. If "accidentally" then they are all INCOMPETANT and therefore not honest and upright.

Hall says that the extra votes are people voting in the wrong precinct, and when those are returned to the correct precint, the discrepancy goes away. Sounds legit, but I have no way to verify. I think that explanation is in the article I linked, if not it’s online somewhere.

The Republican Party has no stomach for the fight that is necessary to save America from the approaching totalitarianism. 2012 was a test run. The Dems are probably giddy that they got away with the election fraud so easily, with nary a peep from the GOP leadership. 2014 will just see them up the ante and steal the House.

Snip

Mandated by law

Colorado law specifies that canvass boards reconcile the ballots cast in each county’s elections to confirm that the number of ballots counted doesn’t exceed the number of ballots cast. The boards also are charged with reconciling the ballots cast in each of the county’s precincts, to confirm that the number of ballots cast doesn’t exceed the number of registered electors in the precinct.

State law also says canvass boards shall certify the abstract of votes cast in each election and transmit that certification to the secretary of state. But it also says that when a majority of the board members are unable to certify the abstract, “for any reason,” the board shall transmit the non-certified abstract to the secretary of state, along with a written report detailing the reason for non-certification.

end snip

Maybe this report will become public at some point....

Yeah in a just world she’d have some ‘splainin to do about tallies and discrepancies.

She’s already stated that the board has no authority, though, or at least has hinted at that.

This is not about fraud.

It happened all over he country , especially in swing states.Official Republican electoral scrutineers were turned away in Florida with the threat of violence, and not allowed to discharge their duties.

This is fascism. Truly. And I for one am tired of everyone soft peddling the fact. Its not fraud.

We have lost our country to a bunch of fascists.

Next step, they go for our guns and ammo.

Good read about POSHITUS and his fascist movement:

In late 2014 or early 2015 (if America makes it that far), King 0bamatollah will issue an EO, proclaiming that his term as president is a lifetime term. This is not tinfoil hat. Less than 10 years ago most people would've said nationalized health care or a president unilaterally overturning federal law, shipping weapons to Mexican drug cartels resulting in the death of a Border Patrol agent, or covering-up a terrorist attack in order to get elected, or NOT prosecuting black panthers for voter intimidation at the polls or working to oust the America ally leader of Egypt and funding an openly anti-Israel terrorist group (Muslim Brotherhood) to replace him and not being impeached for it could never happen. I left a ton of 0bama's impeachable offenses out but.. You get the point.

It's amazing what a president who holds a race card can get away with.. It's the ultimate protection when the mission is to sabotage the private sector and undermine our foreign policy to make America more equal to, and less exceptional than other countries. What a legacy, but single females are lovin' it, baby! The destruction of America continues, mmmmm mmmmm mmmmmmmmm..

Wouldn’t it have been determined at the outset (when they were checked in) which precinct they lived in? In our precinct, the first thing they ask us for is our address.

If they were handing out ballots without verifying that the people receiving them were even eligible to vote in that particular precinct, that points to negligence or fraud.

If I told you what in going on in my own town and county with elected ‘R’s’ against ‘R’ taxpayers’ you would be (or possibly not)_shocked. While very few know it - It’s not that it’s a secret but they don’t want to get involved. Seems this a a prelude of everyone for himself. If a liberal is against you, one could turn to the R’s but when they are in to together you can’t trust anyone - Judges, lawyers, town officials, cops. There are so few left who will do the right thing because they know they will be maligned, disbarred, set up or fired.

I don’t understand this “prevented-—” part. A knee in the jewels is usually enough to clarify the request to “observe”. Who the bleep makes up rules like that? If it takes assault and battery to keep an election on the up-and-up then that’s how it’s gonna be.

Sounds legit, but I have no way to verify

...and neither does the Canvassing Board. The County Clerk office would not provide any details on the "reconciliation".

Hall also specifically refused to allow Watchers from any political party to monitor the receipt and processing of absentee ballots.

Absentee, Early and Provisional ballots were counted with almost no oversight whatever.

By some amazing coincidence, almost all of the measures to increase city and county taxes won by small margins.

Fraud is a noun, and so is Fascism. Look them up.

“Defraud” is the verb form of the common noun fraud. “fascisize” is the verb form of the proper noun Fascism

Fascism is the institutionally based destruction of freedom always historically based on political correctness which usurps law and due process, and a involves dehumanizing of those who are defined as politically incorrect ( eg . Jews of Germany in 1938). For example the term illegal alien is politically incorrect in the USA, yet it is the term used in our immigration laws passed by a duly elected Congress, and that law is not properly enforced due to political correctness. Such a nation is not a nation of laws. It is a nation enslaved by fascism.And so those who use the term “illegal alien” are dehumanized prior to their destruction by taxation or by force.

Thats what we are....enslaved by fascism, and our country and MSM is too numb or misdirected by propaganda and political correctness to even know it.

Stupid people still have cable. Smart people started giving up cable years ago.

Now is the time when smart people start minimizing their exposure to the property taxing authoritays. As in, bare land if you must have land, or no land or real estate at all.

They're going to need a BUNCH of chuckle-headed bag-holders to pay those SWEET pensions and legacy salaries....
