Does Anyone Really Believe These Results? Updated

CLARIFICATION:  Commenter Ben points out that there were 2 cards on the ballot which accounts for the numbers.  This is a never mind part of the story.  My fault for not properly vetting and digging a bit further.  Apologies.

Continuing with the “Does anyone really believe” theme.

Allen West says he has some serious concerns about the elections results in St. Lucie County, Fla.

Me too, Allen, me too.

We are all Chicago, now.

No word from the blue helmets except they are shocked that many places didn’t require voter ID.  I don’t know why, they’ve observed these types of elections in other countries before.  Venezuela comes to mind, Cuba as well.

    I was thinking the same when way back, I think it was Hillary that was overseeing some election in a newly democratic country and that made Me laugh when……….. well you know the story.

    Vote early; vote often.

    That’s why I recently asked – do they stop counting at 100% or do they continue.

    So, USA might still have a sane electorate. It’s just that that doesn’t matter.

    Welcome to the club (of non democratic systems).

    One of things a programmer does to improve run-time speed is to profile the code. This is a way to instrument the code and then find out where the processor is spending all of its time. You then spend your limited time optimizing the few areas where the code needs it, instead of trying to optimize the entire program.

    The problem with election fraud is that no one knows what is really going on. The process needs to be instrumented so we can see where it is failing. Unfortunately, any attempt to clean up our election process is met with enormous resistance. Their favorite accusation is racism. Since when is requiring voter ID racist? Only in the minds of the fraudsters. I’m not sure voter ID will help much either.

    I would like to know that everyone who is supposed to vote are the only ones voting.

    I still have a problem believing all the results. Ice Berg comes to mind, we will never see the major part of the fraud.

  6. Is this story going to gain any traction?

    Can the results of this over voted precints have addtional information of the voting split, dimocrat vs republican, and then compared to the registration split? Can polls that may of happened in those areas be compared to the results? Can those republicans who never voted be called up to see if they did vote?

  9. Ben says:

    The ballot was comprised of two cards, not one.. Each voter cast two cards, so the turnout was 70.5%, not 141.

    Lets get back to the 99% Philly fraud, the poll watchers ejected, and 100% Cleveland fraud.

    This story was planted to make conservative sites look foolish, and minimize the impact of real voter fraud.

    In my state, which has open primaries, you must apply for a voter registration and supply ID when you apply if you apply in person. At the polls, You show ID, the worker looks up your name in the government generated list. The worker then marks your name off and you sign in. The signatures must match the signature on the application should verification be required. There is no early voting here.

    You can vote absentee, and much of the convictions for voter fraud here are absentee related. I know someone from a small (9000 pop), poverty stricken county that spent 36 months in Federal prison for voter fraud. I know of a few elected Democrats (local) that were likewise convicted of state voter fraud (they didn’t go to prison … just the county jail). You fill out a paper ballot and insert it into a counting machine. I had my ballot rejected the first time and this was the first time it has ever happened to me (and others had issues as well). You give the spoiled ballot to the poll worker and get another one. Everything is packed, labelled and sealed. When I voted, some 2500 people had voted before me. It was fairly crowded but went smoothly. No campaign people were within 100 feet of the building. No exit pollsters either (at least I didn’t see any). The county was carried by Romney/Ryan roughly 59/41. Obama carried three or four large counties here (pop > 70,000, of which he barely carried the largest county and easily carried the 4th largest county).

      One other thing. Felons are automatically disqualified and I think are automatically purged once the county gets notified by the state. A felon may apply for restoration of rights from the Pardon and Parole Board. A felon who had completed his sentence, including probation after release, paid all fines, and has remained clean (including drug testing for those who have drug related convictions) will probably have his rights restored. I have not looked into the state statute and administrative rules in depth, but I have looked at the code itself.

    My gosh in Aus many convicted armed fellons on their first offence do not even get jail.

      • cdquarles says:

        Under certain circumstances, some felons get probation. Federal Mandatory Minimums sometimes proscribe this, but District Judges still have some discretion. State/local felons often get probation for the first offense, particularly if it is ‘nonviolent’ such as drug possession of 1 gram of coke, or something similar (varies from state to state). I’d guess these types of felons in Australia get probation, or maybe a few months in a halfway house work release program.
