Montana Op-Scan Failures Underscore Concerns About Wisconsin's 100% Unverified Recall Results

http://www.bradblog.com/?p=9342

ES&S voting systems fail yet again...

Before, during and after last week's historic Wisconsin recall elections, we detailed why there is reason to be concerned about the computer-reported results of the votes cast across the state, even with the majority of those votes having been cast on paper ballots.

In short, the results are, and will remain, 100% unverified unless someone bothers to get a court order.

As we previously reported...
hose ballots ... are tabulated by computer optical-scan systems like the ones in Palm Beach County, FL, which, in March of this year, had named several losing candidates to be the "winners." And like the ones in New York City which, in 2010, managed to toss out thousands of valid votes, including as many as 70% in one South Bronx precinct. And like the ones in Oakland County, Michigan, where officials found the same machines failed to count the same ballots the same way twice in 2008. And like the ones in Leon County, FL, which, in 2005, were hacked to entirely flip the results of a mock election.

1. its time go

 

to paper ballots....and I don't want to hear from some rightwing bigot that its the "stat rates" to count ballots as they please...the federal government needs to force a uniform system for federal offices either paper ballots my preference, but at least the same way in every state and can be verified.

2. I love this sentence....

"On the other hand, citizen eye-balls used for public, precinct-based hand-counting, which is actually overseeable (as per Democracy's Gold Standard), never expire and, unlike computer tabulators, they cost next to nothing each year."

I was wondering if anyone has the link detailing the single women who counted these ballots... I can't remember what the details were, but she had a past of being removed from her past job for unethical issues.. If you find it post it.. Thanks...

4. You may be thinking of Nickolaus, the woman in Milwaukee

but she used voting machines and computers. When votes are hand-counted, there's supposed to always be at least two counting together, a Dem and a Repub, plus maybe an Indie. They all agree on the vote and then record it. That's why hand-counted paper ballots are the gold standard for fair elections.
