1. Summary of irregularities in Ohio recount by Green rec. team
Ohio Summary of Green Recount Team reports of county recount efforts- only about half of counties have . completed reports- few of the counties allowed full complete audits
Only 4 releatively small counties were noted in the recount summaries to have done full random samples as required by Ohio law. 4 other counties were noted as having either done a random sample with demographic limits on the counties that could be chosen or to say they did previous random sample without recount team participation.
In the recount/audit process, there was evidence of fraud or manipulation of vote totals that were likely to have produced significant deviations in the official vote totals compared to the voter intent. This is in addition to failure to count or take into account undervotes due to hanging chad as can be done according to Ohio law. The hanging chad were a problem in getting agreement between hand counts and machine counts in many punch card counties.
The following counties were identified as having evidence of fraud or manipulation that could have produced significant differences between official counts and voter intent(or significant efforts to prevent recount team from assessing the validity of vote totals)
Auglaize, Ashland, Coshocton, Cuyahoga, Fairfield, Fayette, Fulton, Green, Hamilton, Hardin, Hocking, Licking, Lucas, Medina, Mercer, Miami, Monroe, Montgomery, Perry, Putnam, Sandusky, Summit,
Some of these counties have had followup analysis by independent analysts that provide further documentation on these counties issues, as well as large numbers of irregularity incident reports to the EIRS hotline on election day. Some of this documentation can be found at the following 5 sites:
http://northnet.org/minstrel/alpage.htm Mahoning and Columbus and Cleveland and etc.
http://www.freepress.org Departments articles
http://www.flcv.com/ussumall.html Ohio
http://www.voteprotect.org maps Ohio county
http://www.votersunite.org Ohio
The Green recount teams in several counties also documented that the DRE touchscreens in some counties have individual votes by precinct stored in the computer memory and audits and hand recounts. One county, Lake, produced a sample printout of 3 % of the votes from election day and carried out a handcount of this printout tabulation, which matched the computer compilation. Which should not be suprising. But it should also be noted that the Ohio Secretary of State forbid recounts of the touchscreen votes in other counties where it was requested. Indications of fraud have been found in at least 3 of the other touchscreen counties in Ohio and further audit of the machines in those counties would likely have produced further evidence of these problems. The Greens are continuing their efforts in this regard, but are meeting with resistance.
The Green recount teams in several counties also documented that the Triad Manufacturer representatives have a remote patch to the Triad compilers and can make changes to the compilers remotely. They maintain and test them remotely, and on election day had a running tally of votes on their company website as the votes came in.

2. How long can they ignore it?
Especially when this mountain of evidence just keeps growing, and growing.

The catalog of crimes gets more pages every week. The pictures get better, too.

Thanks, berniew1.

6. Important to determine which are minority precincts and correlate problems
with minority precincts. It appears that there was systematic dirty tricks to cause them to vote in wrong precincts, too few voting machines, machines that didn't work, malfeasance by officials regarding registration, absentees, provisionals- especially in minority and student(minority college) areas. Who would have demographic data by precinct? I've seen it by county in some cases.
And these types of things appears to have occurred in over 20 states that I've compiled the EIRS data for.

7. I need to get precinct results for the S., Florida counties to look at TS
impacts. Know where I could get this?

I have about 3 dozen precincts each in Palm Beach, Broward, & Dade where touchscreen switching was documented.

8. Can you clarify
what you mean by "precinct results?" Do you mean you're looking to correlate the EIRS complaints from those counties with actual precinct locations?

Here's how we did it for the Ohio counties where we did it:
We got a list online of all the precinct locations in the county, with both addresses and names of the church or wherever it was that voting took place. (One trick to getting this was if a county BOE had a webpage set up where you could enter your address to find your polling place, we looked for an option called "view all" or something which sometimes led us to the full list. It took some searching to find this info.)

Then we looked at the EIRS complaints that had enough info on them to identify the precinct. Sometimes it was the name of the facility, sometimes the address, sometimes the precinct number. And because many of these EIRS complaints were made by phone, lots of the names of polling places are spelled nowhere near correctly. The correlation of these precinct locations with EIRS info was done by hand, tediously.

Does that answer your question? If you want this done, perhaps a less-busy DUer might divert some of their DU-browsing time to help you out!
