Worker Fired After Davidson County Double Voting
News Channel 5, Nashville, TN ^ | May 13, 2014 | News Channel 5

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Davidson County election worker has been fired after problems with electronic poll books allowed some people to vote twice.

Election officials have said that some people were allowed to vote twice because an outside vendor did not update electronic poll books with early voters before Election Day. The fired worker did not cross check early voting tallies against the poll books.

"So there were procedures that were not followed on their side and on our side," said Administrator of Elections Kent Wall.

Last Tuesday was Wall's first election at the helm. He says he still trusts the machines despite the human errors.

"The veterans here tell me mistakes get made in every election. We just think there are fewer with the new equipment than there were in the old process with the paper poll book," he said.

Mistakes?????????? Those people who voted twice (or more) didn't make a mistake! It was deliberate and criminal! They need to be prosecuted but not a word mentioned about that.

They should be jailed and have their voting rights permanently removed.

And how did those people know they could vote twice? It had to be coordinated.

He was fired because the system was supposed to allow voting five times.

Indeed they should. But it sounds like they aren’t even going after the jerks. I’m going to look for contact info for this Wall fella and raise cain. I hope other Tennesseans are thinking of doing the same.

People have been voting multiple times for a while now. They just haven’t talked about it much in the past that I recall.
But it’s been obvious there’s coordination going on and they need to go after the folks involved; not just that one worker they fired.

Are there really that many people just waiting for the opportunity to commit voter fraud?

Get rid of “early voting”

Get rid of “motor voter” registrations

Prohibit “same day registration”

etc.

All of these are vectors for corruption. Democrats seek to increase the number of vectors.

I know you’re happy about that after the winter y’all had. Brrr, but it was cold up there. Bad enough here and we’re glad to see warm weather at last.

The fired worker did not cross check early voting tallies against the poll books.

How convenient!

Did the voters actually/intentionally vote twice, or did they vote once in early voting, and then "vote again" on election day without knowing about it? As in helpful poll workers checking to see who was still on the list (all those early voters) and therefore still needed to vote demoncrat?

What % of voters actually go to the polls on election day? And how many show up to discover that they can't vote, because they "already did"? Or no matter, the machine votes for whomever it wants?

Banana republics have more credibility.

If it’s like the ‘08 elections, they had a lot of them. And a lot were illegals.
In ‘08, a guy reported following a woman driving a van load of illegals from one precinct to another. They allowed her to go into the voting booth with each one so she could “help” them since they didn’t understand English very well.
Then he followed her to where she’d picked up those folks and saw her drop them off and load up more. He followed her doing the same routine for three days, then reported it to the election officials. NOTHING was done about it.

Our county Republican Women’s Group has been hounding the TN Legislature for a few years to do all of those things, to no avail so far. I imagine other groups are, too, but for some reason they just won’t listen. It’s beyond aggravating.

Overall, that’s pretty much it in a nutshell, isn’t it?

Article in The Tennessean yesterday:

Mark Goins, the state’s election administrator, said he has recommended referring the six voters to Davidson County prosecutors.

FYI, this was a local primary so any voter who voted twice would be from the same party:

Voters in Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford and Sumner counties are selecting nominees for judges, court clerks, sheriffs and commissioners. Winners of the Republican and Democratic primaries will face off in local general elections in August.

Apparently some counties in Tennessee have two primaries. Seems a bit of a waste of resources and confusing to the public. The general election date refered to here is the primary date for the rest of the candidates

Thanks for the link, Steven.

Goins doesn’t need to recommend referring them to prosecutors. He needs to refer them. Period.

If anyone was turned away, it was probably because they didn’t have photo ID. No ID; no votee. And people have had plenty of time to get one since the law went into effect.

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. I do hope they prosecute those who voted more than once. It’s past time to deal with this mess everywhere it occurs.

Last week was the county primary elections in TN. The general election for these positions will be in Aug., when we also have our state primary elections .... state senators and representatives, governor, US senators and representatives.
Then we have the state general elections in Nov.

I don’t know why they split it up so much. I agree it seems to be a waste of resources.

If someone votes once, they KNOW when they vote the second time in the same election. Who’s kidding who here?

Guess the Iraqis had it right with dipping the finger in the ink procedure.

I've been saying we need to do that in this country since I first heard how they do it over there.
