8. A New York race
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 11:02 PM by Carl Brennan
NY state senate race may be overturned! "machine tampering".

Brief summary... Senate race. Dem - Stewart-Cousins. Rep - Spano. Spano won the election. A recount is being done and as there were more Dem votes in the machines then were recorded during the election, the Dem is now winning in the recount. We may get a Senate seat to flip to a Dem.

"The two sides have traded allegations about irregularities in the voting, with Republicans claiming voters were imported from New York City and Democrats claiming voters were harassed and voting machines were tampered with. All machines and records were impounded by judges.

The county Board of Elections disclosed Friday that seals on 22 machines were damaged or missing.

As the recount progressed on Monday, election workers, closely watched by representatives of the campaigns, compared vote totals recorded on machines with the tallies reported by poll workers on Election Night.

Jonathan Rosen, director of the state Democrats' campaign committee, said Berger told him that nearly every machine had a higher count for Stewart-Cousins than was recorded. However, Spano also gained votes, including 80 from one machine, Rosen said."
