I posted this in the election forum, but if anyone can help direct
me to someone here in colorado that might want this information, please PM me with the info.

************************************************************
I also saw my vote "hop" to Bush when I chose Kerry. I live in Colorado, voted at the Jefferson County Court building early. I did catch it and , in fact, changed it back to Kerry. It was an electronic voting machine. When I reviewed all my voting at the end it did say that my vote had registered for Kerry. I also overheard two election officials say when I was filling out paperwork "that woman looks determined." Those same two election officials stood next to me while I was voting and talked about two "bums" that had voted the day before. They said one was a woman "that stunk to high heaven" and needed a lot of help voting. Apparently, the woman helping her was asked by this woman how she thought she should vote. The other was a man and they said that he was "practically illiterate" and the elderly gentleman that helped him said he had to help him so much he was afraid of being accused of directing his vote. These two people had no qualms about me hearing every word they said. While I am not the type of person that is ever easily intimidated and there was no way in hell they were going to "change" the way I voted, I do think it was outrageous they were willing to have this conversation right next to me. Does anyone else think this might have been a form of voter intimidation? I wonder how many people listened to this conversation and if it had any effect on them?

On Edit: So you don't think I have done nothing about this, I did email this information to Kerry's brother Cameron the day after the election! I have heard NOTHING since!

1. You should sign up and work the next election as a poll worker
That is the best way to help people and protect the vote.

3. Simply call your local BOE and ask for the Dem party rep.
Tell them you are interested in working the March election. Trust me, they will call you like a college student asking for money.
