Ironically, Nader may spoil the election again

"One of these organizations, black box voter dot org ( is attempting to investigate these reports and is apparently filing a freedom of information request for the black boxes on over 3000 voting machines. Of course evidence is worth nothing if you don’t have a way to open the election to a recount, and there are now reports that Ralph Nader may be willing to mount such a challenge, opening the door to rechecking results in as many as 34 states."

More info on exit polls vs. counts

I don’t know where this data comes from, but this claims to be a comparison of exit poll numbers with actual percentages in key states.

Why, it’s an Episode III trailer.

Kerry won (maybe)

Filed under: — adam @ 10:33 am

According to Greg Palast, Kerry won Ohio and New Mexico, and that fact is being obscured by high spoilage rates in Democratic communities.

Also, this post to the IP list claims that the count of 175,000 provisional ballots don’t include 10 counties.

This seems reasonable to me. Those votes should be accurately and fairly counted before a winner is declared.

Update: Franklin county in Ohio has reported that a “computer glitch” resulted in almost 3,900 votes being magically created for Bush, in a county that only had 638 people voting. One public glitch likely means that there are a lot more that have not yet been reported.
