Are there any reports out there that votes are switching to Democratic
after selecting the Republican candidate? Are we convinced this computer glitch is only negatively affecting the Democratic candidates?

1. JUST THIS:
Democratic votes are flipping to the REPUKEs in AT LEAST FIVE STATES NOW:

Texas, Missouri and Arkansas

And now today in Florida:

I just received the following email from the Jack Carter camp regarding election fraud, and I thought that I would share it with everyone here:

Voter Fraud Alert in Nevada

A Jack Carter voter in North Las Vegas has reported that she cast her vote for Jack Carter and the machine would not register her vote for Jack Carter. Instead, her vote was cast for the None of the Above option.

The Election Protection lawyers are following up on this report now.

It is of vital importance to our democracy and the future of our nation that each and every citizen be vigilant and aware of the potential for voter fraud.

If anybody hears of any incident of voter fraud,intimidation, telephone, e-mail or any difficulties WHAT-SO-EVER with casting a vote, WHETHER in, at or around a POLLING PLACE or ANY OTHER PLACE as we continue through early voting and lead up to election day, please do the following:

Get the full name and phone number, polling place, time and as detailed a description of the facts of the incident as you know them.

Call the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-737-3367 and pass on the report to the lawyers on call as soon as possible. DO NOT DELAY! Any delay in reporting could prevent effective action from being taken and could disenfranchise more voters.

Call the Carter Campaign office with the report so that we can be aware of the incidents and make sure it gets followed UP
Any suspicion of voter fraud should be forwarded to the Nevada State Democratic Partys Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-737-3367.


AND BACK IN OHIO:
Voter ID rules change a third time in four days (OH)


Monday, October 30, 2006
Mark Rollenhagen
Plain Dealer Columbus Bureau

A federal appeals court Sunday jumped into the fray over Ohio's new voter-identification law, changing the rules for absentee voters for the third time since Thursday morning.

A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati blocked an emergency order issued by a federal judge in Columbus Thursday night that had set aside ID requirements for absentee voters after determining that they were vague, confusing and unevenly applied by county election boards.

The ruling left unclear what would happen to absentee ballots mailed since Friday.

Review Finds Mistakes On 5,100 Absentee Ballots (OH)
Board Of Elections To Send Reprinted Ballots To Voters

POSTED: 5:24 pm EDT October 9, 2006
UPDATED: 6:20 pm EDT October 9, 2006

CLEVELAND -- There are more troubles for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections just one month before the state votes on a new governor.

The troubles center around the absentee ballots sent out to voters. A weekend review revealed 5,100 ballots that have misprints of one form or another, NewsChannel5 reported.

The review was prompted by last week's discovery that 1,500 ballots in Ohio's 7th House District race listed the wrong party affiliations for the candidates.

Some mistakes discovered over the weekend include one candidate's name appearing smaller than his opponent's on the ballot because of its length.
