Yesterday I spoke about what may be election fraud in the handling of absentee ballots in Bullock Co., Alabama. Today the District Attorney in Randolph Co. requested an investigation of absentee ballot handling in his county. An investigation is already being carried out in Potter Co. Absentee ballot mishandling appears to be the preferred means of election fraud in Alabama. Clearly this is something that bears our attention going into November.

It is no surprise at all that ES&S investigated problems on their machines used in Faulkner Co., Arkansas, and declared the whole problem was “human error.” However, there was an error in tabulating the votes. That error was not caused by the voter so that error is a violation of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 Section 301(a)(5).

The Secretary of State of Ohio has released a report on the 2008 Primary from last March. The media reports say the primary had some “bumps but went well overall.” In fact, the report ignores problems that even the Secretary described at the time as a “huge problem.” One has to wonder why election officials seem to think they can misrepresent the facts and not be called on it....
