More votes flipping -- this time in Nevada
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 03:22 PM by Emit
Email alert from Jack Carter's campaign:

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 (sic),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.



Edited to reflect that it is too bad that Carter's folks do not know the correct terminology in this matter. I have emailed and called them to suggest they change the term "voter fraud" to the proper term, election fraud.

2. Just a quibble compared to the main point
That the Democratic candidate in question's campaign is actually getting on the ball with this, makes a welcome change

4. I'm very pleased with Carter being on top of this
(My point about terminology of vote fraud vs election fraud was actually an afterthought)

I've had the pleasure of seeing Carter speak a few times now, and while some people think he's stiff or a poor speaker, I rather enjoy his dry sense of humor and his candid and frank comments -- he's also obviously very intelligent. This last time I saw him, he made some sort of comments about "who the real terrorists are" referring to this administration and their "terra alert tactics" -- it was really funny and to the point. I also noticed that during a debate with John Ensign, he brought up the fact that Ensign voted for the The Defense Authorization Bill of 2007 giving control of National Guard to the executive over that of state governors. It was a subject that many people were not aware of at the time and Jack was addressing it.
