    In Gahanna, a burb near Columbus, Ohio, they found an error in some machine where Bush got an extra 4,000 votes!

    Hmmm.....

    Link?

    I can't help but be suspicious of the Florida voting system as well. There still don't exist paper trails of the votes cast on electronic machines there, correct? Or did I miss something?

    No wonder Dubya was so certain of his reelection.

    I think we should check out and recount the voting in Pennsylvania. :)

    How many votes did Bush win in Ohio over 140,000 and the military votes has not even been counted as yet. That should be over 4000 for Bush not counting if Kerry gets 2 or 3 of those votes.

    Not that it matters, but Bush got 3,983 extra votes that didn't exist. The machine just added them on.

    Why is it so damned difficult to do something as simple as count votes?

    Yeah, yeah, I know. I guess you're bound to have a margin of error when there are millions and millions of them

    I'm watching Julius Caesar on the History Channel right now. Voter fraud and philandering politicians are nothing new. :)

    Not to mention that the CEO of Diebold, the electronic voting machine manufacturer, the one that millions of people voted on, not only contributed to the Bush campaign, but also promised that he would deliver the state of Ohio in favor of Bush in the 2004 election.

    Why is it the liberals always come up with some sort of conspiracy theory for every event? I think GWB rigged the Red Sox vs Yankees series so that the Boston leftists got so drunk that they forgot to rally support for their cause in the rest of the country.

    The machine with the extra votes was not manufactured by Diebold.

    I never said that it was. I just think that the companies who manufacture voting machines that MILLIONS OF PEOPLE use for PRESIDENTIAL elctions should not be promising to deliver votes to any candidate.

    That wasn't exactly what he said... but your point is well taken. This guy shouldn't be lending support to any candidate.

    There is absolutely no technical challenge to counting votes. It's trivial. However, keeping hackers out is another matter.
