We'll see what happens with this story, but it is always amazing that this happens in swing states. Only so far on the front page.

Only if backed up somewhere else...the city is denying it at this point, but voter fraud is a way of life in the cities, so it wouldn't surprise me if something like this happened somewhere.

I thought we were all up in arms about Poll Watchers and Election Monitoring groups?

-Jag

There were two poll watchers here in Chapel Hill when I went...

Oh and I have now gotten three more automated "Vote Team Republican!" phone calls. The NC GOP is really blowing it this year. No live calls. No door to door. The DNC actually had people drive out here to personally give me a voter guide and to remind me that I could still vote early this past weekend.

Added: I don't know what it's like in other states, but here in NC you just walk up, give your name and confirm your address and then you get to vote. I could go back in a few hours and cast a vote for my dad as he's apparently still on the rolls (yet living in Arizona currently). Hell, armed with a phone book, I could go cast as many votes as a I wanted...

Please for the love of god, can we get some election reform?

Hey, I got a call from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger urging me to vote No on Prop 72. And he decided on Santa Barbara as the place to have is No on 72 rally - at the Elephant Bar, of all places.

Pretty much cementing my Yes on 72 vote.

I live in New York and have been getting SPAM concerning Prop 72. I wish I could vote for it.

Your support of yes on 72 made me wonder what it was...
    Originally posted by the Secretary of State's Office
    Health Care Coverage Requirements.
    Referendum.

    A “Yes” vote approves, and a “No” vote rejects legislation that:
    • Provides for individual and dependent health care coverage for employees, as specified, working for large
    and medium employers;
    • Requires that employers pay at least 80% of coverage cost; maximum 20% employee contribution;
    • Requires employers to pay for health coverage or pay fee to medical insurance board that purchases
    primarily private health coverage;
    • Applies to employers with 200 or more employees beginning 1/1/06;
    • Applies to employers with 50 to 199 employees beginning 1/1/07. Applies to employers with 20 to 49 employees
    if tax credit enacted.
Socialized medicine? No thanks. Vote NO.

Incidentally, vote YES on Prop 71.

Hell, I didn't know even know that was on there. Crap, I say vote yes on it, because socialized health care can't be any worse than the current state of things.
