AP is maintaining vote-count pages for both the NY special election and the Nevada special election for the US House
New York District 9, Weprin v Turner
Nevada District 2, Amodei v Marshall

That would be my guess.
This seems kind of ridiculous. Forty plus minutes and not a single vote has been counted, or at least reported to the media or other sites? Either the vote counters are quite incompetent or the Dems are somehow holding back and plotting a big theft.
Or picking his nose..
just went to Turner’s twitter account and nothing:
We all talk about how they’re going to steal our elections, we watch them steal our elections, yet we seem powerless to stop them.
Why? If it’s blatant fraud, why can’t we stop them?
I predict two things will take place tomorrow:
1. the sun will rise
2. when the Dems lose tonight in NY, they will accuse the GOP of cheating
because the GOP fights like little girls...credit Turner for the preemptive strike...
Because this is a special election, there is no day-long media coverage with exit polls that would be used to “project” a winner once the polls closed. Most media outlets will probably not report the winner until the official results are posted.
Still zero results at AP. This is smelling.
What an exciting race! They’ve been exactly tied for almost an hour...
They beat the prediction by a day, they’re already claiming the GOP jammed their phone lines.
Correction to last phrase—had always done...
At this rate we may get Nevada results first
GEEZ! At it already! Damn these people!
I may be wrong about this, but I believe that in some states, the elections for the House of Representatives in the early days of the U.S. were all done for the entire state and there were no “districts” to speak of. If a state had 10 House districts, they had ten candidates running for the House on a statewide basis.
One precinct in Queens finally reported. Turner ahead 48 votes to 34 votes.
First results - go and look yourself.
Turning winning, with 48 v. 34 votes.
Not statistically significant, but at least they’re starting to release the votes.
Shucks, in a few minutes we’ll have the election results from Nevada-2 CD. New York Election officials are shameful and incompetent at best. I guess the Democrat, anti-Americans are looking for any way to cheat their way to victory. It’s expected, unlike the Democrat/Obama job or GDP numbers, which are always unexpected!!!
First results has Turner leading 57-40!!
Sample size of 1 LOL
It’s a landslide!/lol
Turner takes a commanding lead - 48 to 34!!!
I just read the post (below) on a local election web page:
REPUBLICAN VOTERS TODAY ARE VOTING BOTH IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY AND IN THE SPECIAL ELECTION.
THERE IS A BALLOT TO VOTE IN THE PRIMARY AND A BALLOT TO VOTE IN THE SPECIAL ELECTION. IF A VOTER GOES TO THEIR ED TABLE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE GIVEN 2 BALLOTS AND SIGN 2 BOOKS IF THEY ARE SHOWN TO BE REGISTERED REPUBLICANS.
AT THE 25TH AD POLLING SITE, POLL WORKERS AT THE TABLES ONLY HAVE DEMOCRAT BALLOTS, AND ARE NOT ASKING VOTERS IF THEY ARE A REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT..THEY ARE ASSUMING THEY ARE ALL DEMOCRATS AND GIVING THEM A DEMOCRAT BALLOT AND DEMOCRAT VOTING SHEET.
THERE IS INDEED A TABLE WITH REPUBLICAN BALLOTS ON THEM AND A BOOK OF REPUBLICAN VOTERS.. BUT IT IS KEPT WAY TO THE CORNER OF THE GYM AND NO ONE IS SENDING ANYONE TO THE TABLE BECAUSE NO ONE IS BEING ASKED THEIR PARTY.
BY 2:30PM WHEN I VOTED, I WAS GIVEN A DEM BALLOT UNTIL I PROTESTED-ALTHOUGH IT DOESNT ‘SAY’ DEMOCRAT BALLOT’ IT IS BECAUSE IT ONLY ALLOWS YOU TO VOTE FOR 1 CANDIDATE, NOT IN THE PRIMARY . THE POLL WORKER WAS VERY AGITATED WHEN I ASKED FOR MY REPUBLICAN BALLOT AND SAID SHE ASSUMED EVERYONE WAS A DEMOCRAT.;
I will drink a beer for those 48 brave souls in Queens. In fact, I will attempt to drink a beer for every precinct that Turner wins tonight.
57%Turner 40% Welprin 1 precinct of 512
Turners lawyers charged that absentee ballots were sent to dead people and voters who didn't ask for them. The campaign claimed at least five dead people were issued ballots.
Good work. Put a floodlight on the fraud.
Early numbers are usually from the absentees. With the court action, they may have decided to put them aside initially.
Rotten to the core bat-turds. Fight this tooth and nail.
If it’s written in all caps, there’s a 98% chance that it’s crap.
First NY reulst in....Turner up BIG.
1 hour after the polls close in NY and we have a whooping 1 out of 512 pct’s reporting in. The remainer are busy canvassing graveyards.
From here on in, I’ll let Greta tell me the results when they come in:
I’ve already clicked refresh about 50 times like an idiot.
lloking good for Turner right now! YAY!
Pubbie lawyers have to earn their pay tonite.
That kind of thing needs immediate action.
Two more precincts reported in, Turner still ahead 126 to 125.
OK I lied. Now it’s 126 v. 125, Turner up by only 1!
Polls closed at 8? 9? Why no votes counted yet?
In the old days, that's what it meant - ballots were held back until the cheaters knew how many needed to be added.
One precinct in and Turner is ahead in the voting count. Hopefully he’ll win, and this will send a powerful message to Obama and the rest of the rats that even in a heavily Democratic district with a long history of voting Democrats to Washington DC, Obama and his cronies have alienated more and more people to the point that they can’t take any state or district for granted.
Only Queens precincts have reported in so far, and Queens is more middle-class than Brooklyn.
So the polls close in NYC at 9PM, and here it is an hour later and only 4 precincts reporting?
What did they do, import a bunch of hanging chads?
Update 10:04 PM: 4 precincts reporting, 55% Turner, 44% Weprin
Yes, I am aware of that move by the Turner folks. Good move on their part, for the Democrat election officials were grave reaching for votes from people that are no longer alive and among us. These are the “dirt bags” of the Obama, Democrat Party. Dummies that do not realize that we, the people have the true skinny on these would be destroyers of our great nation!!! Obama, politically broom him!!! All Democrats, politically broom them!!! Obama, the African Muslim, lover of the “Muslim Brotherhood” and would be destroyer of Israel and all Jews!!! Folks, can someone tell me where the “Arab Spring” has gone??? Never was, and never will be as long as Obama is the Muslim Brotherhood driver behind the wheel!!!
I lived the first 46 years of my life in New York, where the dead are allowed to vote.
I’ve spent the last 8 in Georgia, where the brain-dead are allowed to drive.
At least voting only goes on once or twice a year.;-)
I agree. Lucky for the GOP that Obama & friends are so self absorbed and tone deaf that they will never adjust their policies. Unfortunately, that will be bad for the USA. Latest results: Turner 55%, Weprin 44% with 4 precincts reporting.
