CUYAHOGA COUNTY: MASSIVE Punchcard machine outages

Edited on Sun Nov-28-04 12:10 AM by Chili
Excuse me while I break something. I'm going over the 1244 reports from Cuyahoga County made to the EIR and I'm discovering for the 1st time HOW MANY PUNCHCARD MACHINES WERE DOWN on election day. One entire polling place had to be shut down as of 3:30 in the afternoon. This is OUTRAGEOUS. These are my neighbors, and I'm so angry I can't type. I live in a mixed suburb in Cuyahoga County, and I notice that there are NO REPORTS - NOT ONE - of machines being down in my suburb, nor in any affluent white suburb. There is a report from Parma and one from W. 150th - blue collar, mostly Republican - but that's it. LOOK AT ALL THEM: 99% of these broken machines are in black communities of Cleveland, some very poor, some even in Shaker Hts. PUNCHCARDS! Suburbs with no reports of broken machines surround these areas in all directions. It's so obvious that this was intentional that I can't believe it wouldn't stand up in court.

It's shocking - I shouldn't be shocked, but I am.

I'm keeping track of it here:

...and of voter suppression here:

I'll have to do something about that "punchcard" column, it's so distorted now with all the reports from different precincts that I'll have to reformat it.
