Ohio's election EES machines aka i-votronic dumped votes in urban area
Edited on Wed Nov-05-08 12:32 PM by Botany
Democrats who lost across the country would be wise to do analysis of
vote data if the i-votronic machines were used. I worked as a poll watcher
for the Obama campaign in a urban area of Columbus, OH. Long story
short 9% of all the voters who signed the voter logs and got permission slips
to vote had no votes recorded at all.

A member of the election team for the Franklin County BOE assigned
to the precinct, a member of the GOTV program for team Obama,
and an outside observer from Maryland who was volunteer for Obama's
election protection group, and I all witnessed the disappearing votes.

We double a tripled check our math too. The paper print out from the EES
machines read 9% less then the # of voters who voted.

I suspect that last night's victories would be much larger if all the votes
had really been counted. BTW Mary Jo Kilroy (D) running for Congress
who in the final days had 6 point lead in the polls but lost by 5 points.


BTW i have machine #s, the memory card #s, the PBT yellow thing #s,
the vote #s from over the day (10 AM, 2 PM, 4 PM, and 7:30 close out #s)
also those vote #s were also sent into Obama's election protection
program too (along with a corresponding poll ID assigned by the Obama
team)

And will I compile that data and turn it over to the right people ... you
bet i will.

I posted this in the wrong forum,

2. You can be sure Jennifer will be made aware of this problem.
The republicans vote tooth and nail to keep them in service after
her study showed that they were faulty.

i think the GOP knows that the machines are dirty and have a
10 to 12 point "fudge factor" with them.

4. Stay on it!
We all know that this began in the OH 2004 election. Can we finally do something to revamp this e-vote system? With no actual paper trail, how can anything be proven? Stay on it. Make something happen!!!
