News Voting machine problems and voters being struck from the rolls

  1. Oct 1, 2008 #1
    I saw on the news (ABC & Fox) that voters in swing states are being struck from the rolls in some states - Mississippi - ~ 10,000 I'm not sure how true the report is but it is disturbing in a deja-vu kinda way. There are also problems with the machines in Fl. and some other states. Do any of you think that this election will get usurped like the previous one?:grumpy:

    Erm, I don't think that is their actual logo!
    Of course they might have reached the point where they really don't care anymore!

    They did recently rename their election machine division - it was getting such bad press that nobody would trust/use/buy Diebold ATMs or ticket machines anymore.

    THE PERFECT MATCH is the latest scheme I have heard of. If a person's voter registration info is slightly different than information found in public records, the person comes under suspicion.

    For instance if a person is registered to vote as John Q Doe and has his vehicle registered as John Quincy Doe, he may be listed as a possible duplicate registration.

    The same thing appears to be happening in Colorado

    Ohio is allowing same day registration-vote. The problem with that could be voter fraud.

    On another note and back to the topic... I saw this

    Theres a link to this PDF file -
