NV Secretary Of State: GOP Voter Fraud Complaint Unfounded
The Nevada secretary of state has declared that complaints made by Nevada Republicans alleging voter fraud are without merit.

Last Friday, Secretary of State Ross Miller, a Democrat, released a 20-page report responding to several complaints filed by a lawyer for the Nevada GOP Victory Committee. The complaints alleged that one- or two-ballot discrepancies in the number of early voters recorded and the number of ballots cast should be investigated for signs of voter fraud.

Miller checked out several of the complaints and ruled that they were simple clerical errors.

"My investigation reveals no evidence of voting machine tampering or voter fraud. It does reveal the presence of occasional human error int he election process, which cannot be avoided as long as humans are a part of the process," he said. "No amount of procedures can prevent error if the procedures are not followed."

"It is my opinion," Miller wrote, "after a review of the procedures in place for poll workers, that the procedures attempt to balance the need to prevent voting fraud at the polls, with the need to assure that every qualified voter is permitted to vote, and that said balance is achieved in these procedures."

2. Halloween is over
Enough complaining about the dead voting.
All those zombies are back in the ground and only real people get to vote tomorrow.

Sheesh!

3. well they really do flip from GOP to DEM in North Carolina
I've talked to someone it happened to. All he wants is verified voting,
a voter marked paper ballot for everyone.

In our state the main push for non verifiable voting comes from a minority of
election administrators who hate paper and hate recounts.
