Bungled ballots stun experts Nov. 17, 2000 PALM BEACH POST

"Almost 174,000 ballots that did not register any vote for presidential candidate in Florida," according to Pam Iorio, Supervisor of Elections Hillsborough County, Florida televised C-Span January 8, 2001 Task Force on Florida Election Procedures

Two reasons: voter error and punchcard system due to hanging chad!! Iorio says.

What does Iorio want: optical scan ballot temporarily with touch screen voting... there would be no need for hand review recounts because the computer automatically registers the votes. And, there would be paperless ballots!

THAT'S RIGHT EVEN IN THOSE AREAS ACROSS THE STATE OF FLORIDA WHERE THERE WERE NO PROBLEMS, IORIO AND OTHERS WANT A TOTALLY NEW SYSTEM.

THIS TOO SHOULD RAISE THE EYEBROWS OF ALL THE INQUISITIVE, THAT IORIO WANTS PROVISIONAL BALLOTS TO BE USED ON ELECTION DAY.

Why do we care?

Read Votefraud.org WARNINGSRED ALERT! The Ruling Elite is moving at breakneck speed to implement the "high tech" voting machines, which will be able to be manipulated from satellite or Internet technology.

In the aftermath of the 2000 election there has been:

  • Too quick condemnation of a system which has reportedly been used for 25 years ACROSS THE NATION with not one massive outcry IN 1996 that ballots were being discarded for overvotes and undervotes. Like in California, where a U.S. Senator (Diane Feinstein) after the Florida election said she's used this system and she knows all about hanging chads. Why wasn't she concerned before the 2000 presidential election
  • Too quick suggestions for abolishing the ELECTORAL COLLEGE which is not responsible for either voter error or the fallibility of a punchcard system due to hanging chad.
  • Too quick suggestions nationwide to revamp election voting machines of all kinds, even those which have not been reported to be prone to errors, such as the old style lever machines. (See Florida precinct where there were no "problems/errors" in the one county which used the mechanical lever machine)
  • Too little information still concerning Florida's complete accurate numbers for exactly how many of these discarded ballots there were and how many legal registered voters actually voted. Estimate is up into the 70 percent range, which itself should raise serious questions.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY

    We need to ask. Was this same punchcard system used in the Florida Primaries, were third party candidates listed, and what was the error rate at that time for the punchcard systems?

    What about this viewpoint, "Paper ballot systems are susceptible to several types of fraud and errors that are overcome by direct recording equipment. This includes lost ballots, modified ballots, invalidly voted ballots and significantly the discrepancy between how a voter intended their ballot to be voted and how it was in fact counted. These types of errors can exist either intentionally or inadvertently. The presence of paper ballots in these system does not provide an audit trail capable of identifying whether these errors occurred.

    Direct recording systems eliminate these significant sources of error, and therefore are significantly more secure and accurate than paper ballot based systems.

    Direct recording systems, however, must provide internal controls and assurances that the votes cast on the machine are correctly recorded by the machine. In accomplishing this, electronic systems offer the capability to surpass the mechanical direct record systems in terms of accuracy and integrity. As promoted here: by anonymous Voteman

    You won't find this kind of inquisitiveness anywhere else on the Net. We are skeptical about everything. With good reason.

    Check out our local issues, too. Very enlightening... county commissioners still do not know the law before they go around and spout off about others.

    State election law bars Fayette from numbering absentee-ballot requestscopy Monday, Jan. 7, 2002 report By Paul Sunyak Herald-Standard

    Analysis found nowhere else comprehensive trail of treachery
  • Chad fraud proven
  • Studies as numerous as hanging chads
  • A Flawless Election hypothetical: if only pigs could fly, too
  • other hypotheticals later recanted for fuzzy math
  • Burden of Proof chronological gabfests miss one item
  • who's investigating whom


    On the one hand the Paper ballot system with human eye review and count as proposed by Citizens for a Fair Vote Count lends itself to potential fraud. During testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, each of the election supervisors who testified, including LaPore, emphatically noted they could not attract enough people to stay for a 12-hour day.

    Not only that, but once the poll workers are scheduled for the day, the workers must remain on the premises for the full day for security reasons. Thus, the idea to have rotating schedules, for half day shifts, is not applicable, according to the LAW!

    Experts testified that there is as much potential for mistakes during hand counts as machine errors, potentially more mistakes because of the human element than machine errors.

    On the other hand - a paperless direct recording system is admittedly scary since there is no paper trail and even experts warn of dangers.

    We have to consider that Delaware reports it is the "First State in the Nation" to conduct an all electronic voting machine "Constitutional Election." We need to find out whether there was any potential for fraud and manipulation. Quick!

    Panel Suggests Election Changes That Let States Keep Control

    Panel Suggests Election Changes That Let States Keep Control February 5, 2001

    Throughout, Truth On-Line remains the
    only Net presence which has shown by the chronology of material found on other sites and from news reports that

    CHAD FRAUD OCCURRED UNDENIABLY IN FLORIDA DURING THE YEAR 2000 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.


    And we wonder even further when we find these kinds of commentaries: In 1990 the Federal Election Commission (FEC) issued voluntary performance and test standards for ensuring the accuracy of vote recording and tally systems. Several states have adopted these standards for voting machine certification. As an example, Florida and New York State Election Law require that electronic voting equipment be certified using these standards, in some areas exceeding the FEC quidelines. This certification is to validate the accuracy and integrity of the systems as well as to verify that the systems meet the requirements of the State Election Law. This certification process entails third party evaluation and testing, including source code review and placement of the source code in escrow..."

    Doesn't that sound secure?

    Computerized polls may save money, protect privacy, writes Lorrie Faith Cranor in Crossroads, a publication of the Association for Computing Machinery which presents solutions which are very convincing, even to the skeptical.

     


    BUT WE'RE STILL SKEPTICAL SO BE AWARE AND CONTACT THIS FLORIDA LEGISLATOR:

    Jim Sebesta, Florida state legislator (meeting televised C-Span January 8, 2001 Task Force on Florida Election Procedures)

    "I'm not in favor of the touch screen system, I've used it, the system doesn't give us a paper trail!!! The optical scan would be okay for the interim, but the public is unwilling to have a system which doesn't have a paper trail!"

    Now Task Force appointees (who are all except for one consultant, on the payroll of the state, or county in elected capacities) talking about National Motor-Voter Law... keep on tracking the truth! Corporate Technology Center, based in Florida... Keep tracking... replacing Florida canvassing boards with possibly other entities

    Watch Doug Lewis, executive director of THE ELECTION CENTER who says his org is now advising the national election reform commissions. Wow, he says it's not all about voting technology! What's it about? What is he promoting? It's about training of new voters, election officials, etc. Most important he said that with the touchscreen system, there are no such thing as recounts by hand. The info is stored in the computer, and the machine tally will turn out exactly the same when retallied by the machine audit review. There would be no way to recount by hand!

    So what is this expert recommending? Analysis: something for everybody so that he can't be pinpointed on any one system. He says that the hightest percentage of voter error in Florida was on the central count optical scan system!!

    Keep those words in mind as we continue to follow the Trail of Treachery across the nation and as we continue to provide a balance of facts found nowhere else.

    Analysts predict Internet voting to be standard by 2004
    By Brad Shewmake
    Gartner Group Tuesday predicted at its Spring Symposium/ITxpo that all 50 states will offer Internet voting in 2004, stating that much of the infrastructure is already in place to allow some form of electronic voting using a Web-capable device.

    "We are looking at a golden age of universal voting in a secure environment," said Christopher Baum, vice president of electronic government at Gartner Group. "Internet-based voting could increase access and opportunities for people on all economic levels."

    ...To prepare electronic voting as a nationwide option in 2004, Gartner listed three security risks the government must address: system outages, fraud, and attacks from hackers.

    ...Gartner analysts specifically listed electronic ballot stuffing as a major concern, accomplished by a misrepresentation from the application server or pre-loading the database with fraudulent records.

    The fact is, voters all across Florida fumbled at the polls - a total of 173,992 bungled their ballots, according to a Palm Beach Post analysis of numbers obtained in a survey of all 67 counties...

    Spoiled ballots across state of Florida
    In this year's presidential race, 173,992 Florida ballots didn't count this year - because people either didn't vote for a candidate or voted for more than one. Of those:


    • 144,813 (83.23 percent) were on punch cards.
    • 28,921 (16.62 percent) were optical scans.
    • 258 (0.15 percent) were paper ballots.
    Percent of ballots cast incorrectly

    • Paper: 6.32 percent (one of 67 counties).
    • Punch card: 3.84 percent (25 of 67 counties).
    • Optical scan: 1.27 percent (40 of 67 counties).
    • Mechanical voting machines: 0 percent (one of 67 counties).
    Source: Elections supervisors in all 67 Florida counties

     


    REVISIT THIS AREA FOR UPDATES BECAUSE SOMETHING IS NOT FALLING INTO PLACE. Optical scan central count system according to expert Lewis on Jan. 8, 2001 had the highest rate of error. The above stats show otherwise.

    Congress to establish voter-fraud task force
    Nationwide investigation will 'put people in jail,' says top GOP leader
    By Kenneth R. Timmerman
    2000 Western Journalism Center
    Republicans will be looking at allegations of voter fraud from across the country, not just in Florida...

    The voter-fraud task force will also examine allegations that the Department of Defense shut down mail call for U.S. military vessels on overseas deployment two weeks before the election, to prevent absentee ballots from being delivered to U.S. Navy personnel or returned by them to their home districts....

    The motor voter rules (known officially as the National Voter Registration Act of 1993) went into effect in January 1995, and required states to allow anyone applying for a drivers license to register to vote at the same time.

    The problem, admitted board of election officials in several Maryland counties, is that no proof of citizenship is required, thus inviting non-citizens to vote by fraud....

    DECEMBER 15, 2000Kenneth Timmerman
    veteran journalist whose work has appeared in Newsweek, Time, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, is currently developing a special series of investigative reports for the Western Journalism Center on vote fraud.
