24. NEVADA - evidence supporting election theft
Edited on Wed Nov-03-04 01:17 AM by SoCalDemocrat
Exit Polls in Nevada project Kerry leading by just exatly 1.2%.


What is the difference? Nevada has instituded paper ballot receipts for their evoting system. They have a verified AUDIT TRAIL! Other swing states that don't have this are showing skewed results for Bush vs the exit polls. Nevada exit polling however is accurate.


Strauss argues that an electronic recount of this kind itself raises an ethical problem. Only company technicians, rather than election officials, are qualified to fix the software, but then any changes they make are not then re-certified. A paper recount would have made everyone less queasy, he says.

This should not be a problem in Nevada, where all the electronic voting machines used on 2 November will be required to produce a paper record of each vote. Voters will then be able to check this paper ballot and drop it in a ballot box. Nevada is the only state to require this, but California and Ohio, among others, will be watching the outcome closely as they intend to move to the same model for elections in 2006.
