The Vote Grab: Voting machines are unreliable and inaccurate  – Independent, UK 10/29/08

As early voting in the US presidential elections gets underway, ES&S iVotronics touch-screen electronic voting machines have been observed in four separate states flipping the votes – mostly from Barack Obama to John McCain but sometimes to third party candidates too. This has already occurred during early voting in the states of West Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri and Texas.A county clerk in West Virginia invited a video crew to watch his demonstration of the reliability of the disputed voting machines but instead he saw the machine flipping the votes, as critics claimed. He put this down to the faulty calibration of the voting machine. However, even after he recalibrated the machine it continued to flip votes. Watch the video here.

Around 4:15 a.m., documents scattered along the shoulder carried an alphabetical listing of Tampa residents, their party affiliations, age, sex, home address, and sometimes phone numbers.  Each entry includes a check boxes to mark whether each person supports John McCain or Barack Obama, whether they voted and whether they need a ride to the polls on Election Day.”
“It was apparently boxes of surveys that fell off a truck,” said Kris Carson, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Transportation.  Buddy Johnson, Hillsborough County’s Supervisor of Elections, said the documents do not belong to his office. “They are campaign documents,” he said. Carson said Johnson’s office advised the FDOT to destroy the materials, but the department is checking with the state elections office before doing that.”

Despite just reaching a settlement with voter rights groups on Wednesday, Colorado’s Secretary of State Mike Coffman has continued to purge voters from the roll, causing a judge to issue a cease and desist order. …The suit against Coffman alleged that more than 35,000 voters were purged from the rolls based on a faulty system for identifying illegitimate voters, and within 90 days of the election — both of which violate the federal Voting Rights Act. The settlement allowed for 20,000 purged voters to be put back on the rolls and cast provisional ballots in Tuesday’s election.

I went door to door on Halloween.

I asked each person if they were registered to vote.

I got some rather interesting results.

The best part is, I got it on video.
