22. AnIndependentTexan - any thoughts on...
the last article -- by Joshua Leinsdorf --

Of the 15 counties with highest "dropoff" (meaning overvote or undervote?) - 10 were ES&S; 3 were Triad; one was Fidlar; and one was Sequoia. So - ES&S, Triad are bad machines because there are many spoiled ballots.

Yet -- Bev Harris' look at Florida in 2000 causes one to be particularly suspicious of computer hacking in the Global Election Systems (GES) counties -- Volusia is the county in which -16,022 votes were added to Gores total at one point during election evening.

So -- what does this mean? ES&S and Triad specialize in vote fraud by means of crappy punchcard machines (and, perhaps, purposefully fraudulent programs in the readers - NC). GES specializes in vote fraud by switching votes from one candidate to the other and/or by adding some extra votes to the Republican totals and thus % of spoiled ballots appears to be low?
