How Faulty and Outdated Voting
Machines Contributed to Voter
Lines and Frustration

ABC News, by Joanna Stern

Original Article

Posted By:Rumblehog, 11/7/2012 9:37:52 PM

"By the way, we have to fix that," President Obama said in his acceptance speech last night. No, he wasn't referring to a specific economic, social or policy issue. He was referring to the issue of voting lines. Long, long voting lines. Across the nation yesterday, and then subsequently across Twitter and Facebook, U.S. citizens shared frustrations, photos and information about voting lines. The images of the long queues were a dime a dozen, especially when you looked at the #stayinline hashtag on Twitter. People in states like Florida and Ohio waited up to seven hours.

Comments:
Since Obama and ABC are pushing this, it's what Democrats will use to remain in power. Similar to Soviet era voting methods.

We fixed that - marked ballots in car trunks, dictatorship with no need to vote again? Tell us how you fixed that, Dear Leader.

By 2016 all US voting machines will run perfectly and record 99.9% for the Democrats.

No electrical power will be needed. Rain or shine on election day the number will never change.

Sorry Joanna - we don't care.

ABC is part of the problem, not the solution.

Don't recall you worrying about it during the primaries.

Baloney! There are more than enough early voting days for people to get the job done. Problem is, they wait until the last minute, then they complain that the lines are long. Too darn bad.

Gee, maybe Barry can open polls for the next election 4 or 6 months earlier.

Perhaps state legislators could reconsider placing many, long and difficult-to-understand Amendments on the ballot.(Florida)
Hard-working, no-time-for-politics constituents as well as placid, non-reading ones came up against a "test" with which they could not cope. They froze and tried to read and understand... holding up the lines and coming away frustrated.

And yet Drudge is showing a lower turnout than for McCain. Doesn't anyone pay attention? Is the Republican Victory Missing in Action, because of vote manipulation?

We know these people can lie and manipulate - 'Benghazi', 'Fast and Furious' - They don't care if people die.

Why would they are if millions are disenfranchised if it feeds their power? If we permit this, we do not have Freedom. What is the point of voting, if the result is painted over to fit what our 'Dear Leaders' want as an outcome? Do we deserve our Country?

I watched the video of the poll person trying to teach the smartest man in the world, how to vote. It took a LOOOOONG time and an obvious look of incomprehension on the potus' face. The poll worker almost had to execute the vote for the smartest man in the world.

Leaving vote fraud aside, I think a lot of the blame for long lines can be laid at the feet of touch screen machines. Paper ballots can be worked on by dozens of people at a time without impacting the flow through the tally machine. Touch screen-type machines are terribly slow to use and lead to back-ups. Apparently either type can be manipulated so better, I say, to use the kind that at least limits the massive delays.

Same story, different year. Bottom line: the voting machines will always be outdated and rigged.

West wants ballots,

West Palm Beach, FL - Republican Rep. Allen West took the first steps in a legal challenge Wednesday in his closely watched re-election bid even as Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy declared a razor-thin victory. West, the south Florida Republican who has made headlines nationally for his fiery tea party rhetoric, filed motions asking a judge to require elections officials to impound ballots and voting machines. Separately, his campaign alleged ‘‘disturbing irregularities’’ at the polls and called for a recount. The conservative congressman refused to concede, but Murphy

Historical treasures
missing from National Archives

Precious historical artifacts like the Wright Brothers airplane patent, the bombing maps for the nuclear attack on Japan, the original eyewitness radio report of the Hindenburg disaster and photos taken by the astronauts on the moon are just some of the items stolen from our National Archives. So much of our past has been pocketed by thieves that the National Archives has formed a recovery team to get them back. Bob Simon reports on this alarming trend -- and the conman now serving seven years in prison for the largest theft of historic artifacts in U.S. history

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
