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?
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.
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?
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

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

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
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

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

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!"
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
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!!
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

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.

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

Nationwide investigation will 'put people in jail,'

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....
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, 2000
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.
