Elections Are Stolen From Voters, Not Candidates

New ID System May Block Voters

"In Los Angeles County, the database rejected 14,629 people — 43% of those who registered from Jan. 1 to March 15. Officials are trying to resolve the problems in time for municipal elections April 11 in 14 cities in the county. They say the challenge will be far larger for the June 6 primary, which will involve many more voters."

"State Sen. Debra Bowen (D-Marina del Rey), who chairs the Senate elections committee and is running in the Democratic primary to challenge McPherson, said: 'We're looking at the potential for thousands and thousands of people to lose the right to vote.'"

The article is worth the read, if you haven't already seen this. It's definitely something to keep an eye on.

The public really needs to pay attention to what's going on here. I have no doubt in my mind they are trying to steal the 2006 elections as well. With all the scandal the Republicans have faced lately, even with the Democrats acting lame they can take the elections.

i expect that they will also, but it won't be as easy as stealing a senatorial (2002) or presidential election. in state-wide counting, it's much easier to adjust the vote-counts on central tabulators (this could be countered by making the precinct-level counts harder to steal. those precinct-level counts could then be used to audit the state-wide counts.) because there are so many elections that need to be stolen, not all of them will be. they don't need to steal them all, of course -- just enough to keep a majority. and if they only steal 15 or 20 out of 400+ house seats and 5 out of 100 senate seats, who's going to notice?

they will continue stealing until they are caught and stopped, or until the vote-counting technology is changed back to the much more difficult to steal kind.
