Deneb81: cman: King Something: It speaks volumes of the GOP that so many people are assuming by default that Republicans are doing this.

Welcome to Fark

While I agree, and that was my first thought too...

Who do YOU think was likely responsible?

My thoughts? Low level Republican Party asshole, or an over zealous Obama supporter that actuall IS mailing them in.


TBH I have no idea. It wouldnt surprise me if there are those in the GOP who are doing this. But, as they say, jumpeth not to conclusions.

According to this follow up, up to 5 years + a $125,000 fine. 

And it's a She.

Lost Thought 00: All this type of crap tends to cancel itself out in the end.


When reports of election fraud overwhelmingly point to it being repeatedly committed by one party and rarely by anyone else, how exactly does it "cancel itself out in the end"?

starsrift: This is getting farking ridiculous.

I think, if Silver "wins" this election too, he will have an ethical imperative to stop.


Is Nate today's talking point? To be charitable, when accurate information bothers you switching out for an 'unskewed' alternative or the performers at World Wide Fox News Entertainment is always available. If you need lies to vote, however, you should do the country a favor and go to the mall instead.

I have no idea whatsoever what an Obamaphone is suppost to be. I strongly suspect it's something I don't want to know, out of the darkest corners of the Internet.

firefly212: To be clear, here in the mountains, I told an Obama volunteer that I was going to do the mail in ballot, and she very nicely offered to come back later in the afternoon to give me a ride to the post office so I could fill it out and mail it. When I asked (rather poorly) if she would do this even if I wasn't voting for Obama, she replied that she cared more about the process of getting everyone out to vote than the outcome.


I've helped at least 10 people get an absentee ballot this year who flat out told me they were voting against the ballot proposal I was working on. Whateva. :) I convinced many times more to vote for it + clean conscience.

One of 0bama's jack-booted brown shirts tried to take my mail in ballot the other day. I caught him trying to steal it. Jokes on him though, I sent in duplicate ballots* AND voted for the voter ID law.

Why would people automatically assume the Republicans are behind this? Makes no sense at all.
 
2012-11-03 11:11:14 AM  
I really don't need to guess which political party they're doing this for, do I?
 
2012-11-03 11:13:28 AM  
Sick no matter which party does it. If you can't win fairly, maybe you should change your ideas so you can? After all, the only thing either party wants is to stay in power. For the most part, they don't give a fark what position they need to take in order to do it.

In before some mouth breather says "SO VOTE REPUBLICAN!"

TV's Vinnie: I really don't need to guess which political party they're doing this for, do I?


Sure the Republicans have spent the past year pointing fingers and accusing everyone else of voter fraud when there's no evidence of such a thing, and sure the Republicans hired a consulting form with a history of voter registration fraud and had them change their name so they could use them in this election, and sure Republicans connected to that group have already been caught maliciously attempting to influence the election, but you're right. You don't have to guess which party.

It's probably those shady ass democrats. We all KNOW the only reason they win any elections at all is due to voter fraud.

In Texas it appears to be illegal to possess a mail-in ballot, even just to put in a mail box, if you are not a family member.

That would apply here, even though it's been used to send people to prison for years for helping a neighbor by just walking out the door to the mailbox with the item.

On the other hand, just print up a few, misspelled fake ballots and hand them out to those "helpful people at the campaign." while you stand in the door way and call 911 about an attempted home invasion and theft of US Mail giving a description of the campaign worker.
 
2012-11-03 11:57:04 AM  
GOP shiatbags are at it here in Seattle, too. Funny how we hear that it's a problem on both sides, but we only ever see it happening on one side. Maybe my glasses aren't working right or something.

Might it have something to do with the Republican nation-wide campaign to deprive people of their votes?

Ground and pound was out in my neighborhood today....they just wanted me to go vote early....My state seems to have gotten closer the last week or so....polling and now streetwalkers....

//PEC shows NC as a toss up now...
//Wang's whole index is rising for Obama and it looks like Romney is going to take a heavy money shot...
 
2012-11-03 12:21:27 PM  
In Oregon, it's completely legal for a campaign volunteer to collect your mail-in ballot at your door and drop it off for you.

So this situation could be nefarious or it could simply be a staffer/volunteer from Oregon who doesn't realize the rules aren't the same in Colorado.

Romney is going to blow his load all over America with an unlimited corporate money shot!

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Well, what am I *supposed* to do? Give my ballot to one of those union thugs in the blue uniforms who keep bringing me letters full of bills the "government" expects me to pay, as if my learning the Secrets to Picking Up Women the Liberals DON'T Want Me to Know isn't my Constitutional right?


Okay, that was funny.

But serious PSA to any fellow Coloradans who still have their mail-in ballots: all ballots must be received by 7pm Tuesday. There will be mail-in ballot drop off boxes at polling places, but they still need to be in their signed and sealed envelope just like if you were mailing it, so don't leave that at home.

If you mailed yours recently and aren't sure it will arrive by Tuesday, you can check the status online - and you can always vote provisionally at your polling place.

Based on the fact that this hasn't made national news, I'm gonna have to guess this was another "overzealous Republican staffer"?

Why would anyone give them their ballot and why does anyone in the GOP think this would be a good idea? I would honestly be tempted to pull a gun on anyone who comes to my door asking for my ballot.

Oh man are you reading my mind?
The worst part is some who are manipulating the system this way will use "defending our freedom" and "spreading democracy" as the justification for the next war. Makes me sick.

Yea, they're spreading democracy alright.
