Such an argument would seem to order another election than to leave the process to chance.
If the Rats loose the coin toss, ... well it’s pretty cold outside today but ... we could see mayhem in the streets ...
One wonders how many precincts are controlled by Democrats.
The more precincts controlled by Democrats, the more possibility of voter fraud by those who love subverting the election process in their favor.
I gotta ask, how did somebody even fill out that ballot like that?
That being said, the Democrats always seem to get listed first. Of course, I have not seen every ballot across the USA.
The dems seem to forget their main contention in Florida back in 2000: that the “intent of the voter” is paramount!
I’d say that the voter who filled out this ballot needs some additional training in how to do so correctly. If you’re going to this much of a hash of it, you need to ask for a new ballot ...
“If Democrat Simonds wins the seat incumbent Republican incumbent Yancey can immediately ask for a recount. Its not likely the recount will be completed when the House of Delegates convenes on January 10th. That means Republicans will have a one vote margin, 50-49, and be able to vote in their leadership team with Kirk Cox as Speaker of the House and Todd Gilbert as Majority Leader. All committee assignments are decided by the Speaker so Republicans will remain in control of the House of Delegates. Once a Speaker has been chosen it takes two-thirds of the House to remove him. “
I believe the voter wanted Yancy, but accidentally filled the Moron bubble, so he/she saw the mistake and cross it out. If the voter voted R on the rest of the ballot, then it should be no contest. If the voter voted D on the rest, then the moron should get the vote. If the voter, voted R/D/L/other party, then the election should be redone.
Didn’t read the full article. Will this one be determined by a coin flip?
It would be interesting to see all the other changes made by the recount commission. The R started with a ten vote lead. That's a lot to overcome in an honest recount, since honest mistakes tend to be randomly distributed.
