Voter #1 Genoa Township, Michigan Precinct 3. Voting problems?

First observation...
-Diebold

I was the first voter, I circled in Ron Paul and put my ballot into the machine. Spit it right back out and said INVALID BALLOT.

Second guy gives it a shot. INVALID BALLOT.

I begin argueing with the lady running the precinct about computer voting and people voting. This lady actually says in a room full of people that Computers are better at counting ballots than people, cause people make mistakes. who makes computers?

So to finish it up, she calls the township. she says I can keep my ballot in a secret compartment and they will put it through later once its fixed.

So they call her back. She gets off the phone. She says the manufacturer says there is a problem with a memory card. Someone from the manufacturer will be there with a new memory card soon.

Holy hell, it doesn't help that I just watched a damn documentary about DIEBOLD and MEMORY CARDS.

I immediately left and drive to the township office to voice my complaints. They must still be sleeping.

What do you mean by

circled in Ron Paul. The ballots require us to fill in the circle if you circled
Ron Paul it would reject it. Did they check your ballot to make sure there
was no problem with how you carried out instructions? Peace

Once again, you won't find this on the news!

We need to continue to band together...we may not win the MI election...but if we become such a large mass of people...they will have to change their ways! One step at a time, don't get discouraged regardless...

Vote Rigging

Sytems rotten, and stinks so bad that I can smell it here in Limeyland.

I think it would be best to make an attempt to

have the township's election decertified.
The Diebold situation needs to be hammered until all Diebold votes are decertfied. Don't get me wrong, they can change the paper ballots too, but you are a voter and the township cannot over rule a complaint. The secretary of state would need to investigate and will if you file a complaint.

We need to make these people miserable. I think it is the only way to scare the cheats.

"Be careful! Those damn Ron Paul people will be right down your throat if we don't get that right."

You know which throat. Be a pain in the ass...uh...throat.

Good luck, things happen for a reason. Take this to the end. You may save the election

Unify

Why don't they just use Scantron machines?

it seems to be the same concept, and those have been used for decades.

from Huff. post (link below):

When a voter arrives at a polling place to vote, he or she marks an optical scan ballot with a marking device, such as a pen or pencil. When finished, the voter inserts the ballot into the AV-OS optical scan machine. The voter is given the chance to reject and retrieve the ballot (such as in the case of an overvote) or to accept the ballot as voted. The ballots move from the scanner to a locked box in the base of the scanner. After the polling place closes, poll workers print an election summary off of the AV-OS. Poll workers transfer the AV-OS memory card, defined below, to the board of elections office for vote tabulating using EMPs and/or the GEMS server."

I may be a vegetarian, but I'll defend to the death my right to eat pork!

Duh...

Duh.. Because the ScanTron machines aren't capable of fixing an election.

CALL THE POLICE

If there is a police officer present then file a complaint and explain to him that they are going to switch the memory card and collect the first one as evidence. Charge that little shit town with fraud. This is complete bullshit.
We have to set a trap for these people.

replace the problematic memory cards?!

that's the whole problem!! just what, exactly, is on the replacement memory cards?

same thing happened in New Hampshire... they had "problems" with the machines, so the "repairman" would come replace the memory cards!

...and just what it is it with the Diebold guys? Do they really think we are that stupid? We know they make ATM machines used all over the world which would be history if they made ANY mistakes... yet they can't seem to make voting machines that do nothing but screw up?

Voted in Osceola Twp. at 8:00 a.m.

NO PROBLEMS....same machine.

I hate this whining about recounts and voter fraud!....Huge time wasters and distractions. The fact is that if there was all this fraud, all candidates would have some hanging chads here and there.

The polls ARE matching the vote generally speaking.

Americans just aren't ready for truth and being off the public dole yet...

We will continue to fight on....Go RP!

If all other candidates are on the same team

They don't care who wins that's why they aren't complaining.

Let's keep the freedom train rolling.

Let's keep the freedom train rolling.

not true!

The problem is, the vote counts do NOT match the polls (as with Hillary in NH) and the manual re-tabulations do not match the machine counts.

What kind of a source is this?

mainstream Italian media?????
and how do they know this?????..........
"In an analysis of the hand-counted ballots, the influential Milanese newspaper - Il Giornale, reports that all Democratic candidates except Senator Hillary"

Need multiple confirmations/verifications....This is speculation......

I will agree with you only after the supposed recount...

and I plan to find out what I need to do to stay and observe and then watch the actual vote count at my precinct.

Im going to try and go back up at 8pm if I can

as a pollwatcher, to skeptically watch everything.

Might as well

Maybe we should start collecting money for a re-count now.

Please tell us you have this documented.

Names, the place, the machine serial #, the names and ID #'s of anyone who touches the machines, all of it!

GRRRRRR

Will it take muskets and bayonets!!!!

She investigates these kinds of things. Document everything and get a pictiure of the ballot if possible.

photocopy it

before handing it in.

Everyone should be taking a picture of their ballot for proof before putting it in that machine.
