Skip to comments.Box of Stashed Ballots Could Invalidate Contested Broomfield Election [vote fraud Colorado ]
Posted on 01/08/2014 10:46:14 AM PST by george76
In the wake of lawsuits and complaints against Broomfield for attempts to cover up and ignore problems in the error-riddled November election, city officials now admit finding a box containing about 75 ballots that for unknown reasons were not counted or reconciled to the voter records.
Unknown is where the ballots came from, why they were tossed in a box, who had access to them and why they were not properly processed even spoiled ballots are processed and documented to reconcile election records. Blank ballots are processed through the voting machines and accounted for.
The box of ballots is the latest quirk in questions about the integrity of the Broomfield election. Records also indicate that Susek or a city employee repeatedly logged into the ballot accounting database as the administrator and downloaded vote tallies repeatedly for two weeks before the Nov. 5 election.
Broomfield election officials have been accused of numerous election violations that were detailed in a scathing report by Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gesslers office. Last month, Marilyn Marks of Citizen Center filed a detailed complaint with the Secretary of States office and two lawsuits were filed by BBEC.
On behalf of Broomfield, Tuthill filed a lawsuit against Marks to block her access to public election records. The case was heard Monday by Wasserman who allotted 10 days for the both parties to file summary arguments.

Did the Dem win? If so, these fraudulent ballots must not have been needed.
Validity of the ballots depends on party affiliation of the candidate that lost.
The vote concerned fracking.
In unofficial election night results, the anti-fracking measure was failing by 13 votes, but after outstanding ballots were counted a week later, it was approved by 17 votes. The measure, which was subject to a mandatory recount because the margin of victory was so slim, passed by 20 votes after the recount was completed.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Boxes of ballots are a ‘quirk’.
These are the same people who insist “we won, you lost, now shut up”.
I really have serious contempt for people who dither with election results, not that I am naive to think it doesn’t happen all the time. It’s obviously another brick on the side of the scales against amnesty, as far as I’m concerned. I think the penalties should be severe.
Why the GOP wont challenge vote fraud.
>> Unknown is where the ballots came from, why they were tossed in a box, who had access to them and why they were not properly processed
Why? In case they’re needed. “What ever it takes”
Reminds me of the episode of “Carter Country” where they found a box of uncounted ballots in the city hall basement.
They immediately thought it was some kind of voter fraud and would turn the results of the last election for mayor.
They assembled the candidates and officials to open the box and count the ballots to determine the results.
They opened the box and read aloud the first name of the candidate that received a vote:
In San Francisco they just dump the whole box in the bay
“I think the penalties should be severe.”
Progressives are not guilty of any crime when they further the revolution, no matter what crime they might commit to do so.
Ok...so the question I'd like answered is, what party affiliation does Election Manager Michael Susek claim? Do I even need to ask?
We need the make and model and name and version of the database the clerk was querying. Now.
He looks like pajama boy's life partner.
Al Franken’s car with the large back trunk again?
this is 2014......and we couldn’t get these election officials to have fair elections if their children’s lives depended on it....crooks.....
Maybe they should look for matching names in the local cemetaries.
Broomfield = Boulder Border town = Probably Fraud involved...
The original council got run out of town for Peyton Place like shenanigans (affairs, etc.)
I lost track of what happened after the eBusiness "Congruence Corridor" went from boom to bust.
I have a feeling that this has more to do with typical human failings (e.g. the seven deadly sins) than Democrat vs. Republican.
It was a pretty nutty ballot issue to begin with and a couple of counties voted to ban fracking. Lol.
“I really have serious contempt for people who dither with election results”
Everything hinges on fair elections. Execute those who tamper with a fair voting process.
Na. Never. There is never voter fraud. Holder says so and you can count on that. /sarc
Weren't they just throwing the identifiable boxes in the bay, unopened?
Not just disposing of the contents...
[ Na. Never. There is never voter fraud. Holder says so and you can count on that. /sarc ]
Holder’s boss told me that I should not listen to those who say I shouldn’t trust government people....

They need a machine where in order to register the vote you stick your arm in it and it takes your finger prints. If it detects the finger prints do not mact the name or the name and finger prints were used already inthe same election a guiotine blade comes down and solves the voter fraud issue for you....
No repeat offenders of vote fraud....
Granted that is a bit extreme, maybe why not just prosecute voter fraud the same way treason is not prosecuted anymore but used to be....
I was listening to a radio show relating to the Broomfield election. It seems a box of ballots from boulder had been sent by maybe Fed Ex to the Broomfield election officials. The official did not have any documentation for the ballots but wanted to count them anyway. After word of the ballots got out she backed off but count results went form one party to another. With a goofball governor like Chickenpooper why would any one expect any action on voter fraud. Chickenpooper is the one that would not even talk to the state Sheriffs over the unworkable gun laws.
A local talk show host has demonstrated how loosey goosey the colorado voting requirements are...
they threw locked boxes with votes in them into the bay stupid people thought they would get water logged or something.
they threw them into the bay on the might of an election hard to tell what their intent was/s
Is that anything like a ‘glitch’?
Maybe these ballots weren’t for the last election, but the next one...........................
Probably related to ‘unexpected’.
billions of dollars worth of transactions happen online securely every year
why don’t we have a voting system that cannot have votes ‘added’ without belonging to valid voters? why can’t we stop multiple voters? why can’t we verify our voting slip after the fact to insure it was counted properly?
it’s VERY possible... of course, then they wouldn’t be able to muck with the outcomes
The Democrats can basically commit voter fraud and get away with it without the RNC ever stepping in to do anything about it.
I think the penalties should be severe.
So these are either extra ballots to boost the liberal view or conservative ballots removed to make the count.
The point here is the clerk had access to the early votes in the database to determine what kind of FIX would need to be put in. If clerks have access to how who voters are voting, we have to assume this is possible with every voting machine!!
Where there’s a shill, there’s a way.......................
I’d be interested in knowing who those particular ballots were cast for. My guess is..........?
Of course. They would never lie and they would never do anything bad.
Think of them as a “Big Brother.”
“Hanging comes to mind.”
If the duel were reinstated, one might see less insulting, obnoxious and rude behaviour on the part of Progressives.
(They might come to the conclusion that the revolution isn’t worth it.)
True, because systems are designed to ensure that transactions are identifiable and traceable, so that if there's a hiccup while processing a transfer from one account to another, each account can be examined to see whether or not the transfer has been processed. Ballots are explicitly designed not to be identifiable and traceable, for purpose of making it impossible for people to show how they voted (nothing can prevent someone from being paid $100 for a promise to vote for someone, but it shouldn't be possible for that person to prove that they earned the money).
Still, it should be easy to guard against misplaced ballots. Within a minute of polls closing, it should be possible to absolutely positively determine how many cast ballots there are supposed to be at each polling place, and even before any ballots are counted it should be possible to get an absolutely-accurate tally of how many ballots there should be at each office. The total numbers of cast ballots should be 100% traceable (e.g. so one can tell at any time which precincts have or have not yet been included in the tally). If all election reports are required to include counts of ballots which are spoiled or have not yet been examined, the total number of ballots in the system should remain absolutely constant, and any deviation whatsoever should be immediately detectable.
Apparently Colorado votes mostly by mail ballots which can be mailed or dropped
at locations and in person if so desired.
The recount shows the following result
10361 For [ban on fracking]
21033 total votes cast [accepted, rejected, not counted]
