Good luck today, let us know how it went. I am going to try and get a camcorder for election here. Virginia doesn't, to my knowledge, have a lot of fraud. We have to be registered and a list is maintained. You are then checked off when you vote. Maybe someone around here could set me straight on this if there is fraud in Virginia.

keep this in the news bump, everyplace we can get this out translates to gains for the GOP senate candidate.

Fan the flames, as the expression goes.

Seems like the biggest problem this time around is with the states where there is a key race, The Rats are pulling out all the stops to steal the election by any means they can get away with.

When I lived in Colorado the voting process was very smooth and well-organized and every effort was made to inform voters. In Arkansas it seems there is a conspiracy to keep voters ignorant. Today was an experience and I can't say that I have any more confidence in the process now than I did at the outset. It was a chaotic mess. It quickly became evident that democrats were running the show. I was one of three republican poll watchers there. When one voter's ballot was challenged by one of the poll watchers, it quickly became evident that even the head guy had no clue how to deal with a challenged ballot and the clerk said she'd never had one before. The workers are predominantly black and it quickly became apparent that our presence there is not appreciated. My guess is that we are cramping their style. I DO hope so. They are also refusing to allow us to sit where we can see the names and the verification process very well. This is being reported. There were a number of irregularities in just a short time from assigning the wrong precincts to letting one impatient black voter cut in front of everyone to keep him from leaving. I can't help wondering if the same accommodation would have been made if it was a well-dressed white man who had not wanted to wait. They even picked that time to change the overhead florescent bulbs in the light fixtures...right over the heads of those who were in the voting booths. I am not looking forward to election day if this is a preview. What a mess!
