Are you sure your

vote was counted?
 
 
 

My opinion by Crazy Eddie  (11/7/04)

 

With all the questions over the vote count in the 2000 presidential election; you would have thought the states would have gotten it right this time. Most people would have you believe that the votes were recorded properly this time. I am not so sure.  

 

In the years and month leading up to the election several groups were asking for a paper trail where computer voting was going to be used. Why would anyone be against making sure that everybody had their vote counted? I can think of only one reason and that is if you were planning to seal an election. I know what you are thing; this guy has lost it.  

 

Just bear with me for a minute. Democrats introduced several bills which would have given voters a paper receipt which could be used in the event of any problems with electronic voting machines. The democratic measures were successfully blocked by the Republicans. It is pretty bad when the electronic voting machines in Venezuela produce a paper receipt and the machines in the good ole USA donít.

 

But there wasnít any voting problems this past election. Not so fast, I am not really sure why the press has not talked more about the problems that where common all over Ohio and Florida, the two states which determined the out come of the election. There was the case in Ohio where in one county where George Bush received almost 4,000 votes and only 638 people voted. In Palm Beach County Florida 88,000 more votes were reported than people who voted. In Broward County the voting machines started counting backwards after 32,000 votes were cast. These are just a few examples of voting irregularities not being reported. Because none of the touch screen machines did not produce a paper trail there is no way of knowing the actual vote count.     

 

There is one more piece of evidence which cast doubts if the electronic voting machines worked properly is the exit polling data.  In states which traditional voting machines were used the exit polling data was accurate, and in the states where non-verifiable machines were used the exit polling data was way off. Of course the states which used the non-verifiable machines included Florida and Ohio. See the graphics below.

 
 
 

The last polls conducted before the election, along with the exit polling and the voting irregularities suggest that John Kerry probably won this election. Unfortunately we will never know.    

 

Do you think there was voter intimidation in the battle ground states?
