What Does The Iraq Election "Ballot" Look Like?

Does anyone have a link to a copy of the ballot being used in the fake election? I understand that the names of most candidate, much less what they stand for, is not indicated on the so-called "democratic" election.

4. You know the really interesting thing about that ballot
There is a very specific mathematical formula to how it is laid out. No matter how many marks you put, or what pattern you fill them out in, you will always end up with the same Prime Minister.

I don't want to ruin the fun of trying to solve this for you guys, but I will post a hint for those who aren't as mathematically inclined.

The Answer, the name of the new Prime Minister, starts with an "A".

Good luck!

5. Here is a link to CBC where they have some good...
information. After you load the page, on the right side of the page is a link entitled "Iraq Election - An interactive look at the vote", just click on it.

Who is running?

More than 120 parties have been approved to run candidates for the national assembly. Each party must present a list of candidates with at least 12 names and no more than 275. One-third of the candidates on the list must be women.

Some of the parties are negotiating to put up combined lists representing a coalition of several parties.


FIRST vote EVER...yeacht reight! This is free and fair all reight! Who EVER thought of this? Why not 18 provinces...18 different ballots - one for each province with a slate to represent each province? Gee we have 50 states and we don't all get to vote for ALL the congress people and ALL the senators we vote for OUR province.. :grr:

6. And who is counting the votes?
Are the final tallys sent to a Diebold central tabulator for 'counting' by BushCo?
