Black Box Voting : - BIPARTISANLY YOURS: COAKLEY WON THE HAND COUNTS
This article is about our right to know, not about Martha Coakley or Scott Brown. And lest you think something here favors a Democrat, just you wait, I'm still working on anomalies in the NY-23 election that are just plain hard to 'splain. As Richard Hayes Phillips says when people tell him to forget it, "I'm a historian, I've got all the time in the world." NY-23 still has history to be written. My public records are starting to arrive. But that's another story.

Back to Massachusetts, I think you have a right to know that Coakley won the hand counts there.

1. I guess what's missing, unless I missed it...
...is how Coakley was polling in the precincts with hand counts, versus those without.

go blue and the remote places go red." quote from Mike LaBonte's post in BBV forum. His post further down the page displays city by city map of the voting systems used.

Yes, the hand count towns in Massachusetts are mostly out west. Compare the election map pointed out by Bob with this population density map. The electoral outcome is the same thing that happens nationally; population centers go blue and the remote places go red.

IMHO, Coakley should NOT have conceded!!!!!!!

2. But Brown won the election...
from the bottom of the article:

GET OVER IT, SCOTT BROWN WON

Actually, I think any intellectually honest person will see that Brown garnered financing and executed brilliantly, and that's just politics.

He probably DID win. In 71 Massachusetts locations we could watch the counting (woops, he lost those, overall). But in 277 locations, the counting was on computerized voting machines and concealed from the public.
