Huge New Diebold Disparities Found in Manchester, Ward 5 During NH Hand Counts

whoops.

NH CONTEST: DIEBOLD MISCOUNTS REPORTED ACROSS MANY CANDIDATES, WARDS, IN FIRST DAY OF ELECTION CONTEST HAND COUNTS

An early review of the error forms turned over from the public record request made by Election Integrity experts overseeing the counting, has revealed that in Stratham there were some 550 ballots that were not read by the op-scan at all. They were seen as blank ballots. Officials there noticed the problem, and then hand-counted some 3000 ballots after the error was discovered.

Apparently, as we’ve seen elsewhere, voters were given the wrong pen to use and the op-scanners did not “see” this particular type of ink.

double whoops. with emphasis added.

    hmm.
    from alternet.org:
    Ironically, in New Hampshire the problems of electronic voting can be seen and tracked because there is a paper audit trail. In the upcoming South Carolina primary, where the state uses paperless electronic voting systems, there will be no independent audit trail to verify the vote.

    honestly, why would any state purchase voting systems that did not produce some kind of auditable paper trail?
