(Washington Examiner)   Somehow, Ohio has still managed not to count 300,000 votes. Not that it will change the results--but how hard can it be?   (washingtonexaminer.com) divider line 108

BlueDuckFarker: jack21221: BlueDuckFarker: So while these 300,000 ballots not-yet-counted may not change the presidential outcome, they could be important to municipal, county, and state elections, right?

That's why they're being counted. You guys know these things don't take effect instantly, right?

That was my point. There are a lot of "Who cares? Those votes won't make a difference" comments in here, suggesting that people think the presidential election was the only ballot item.


The other items on the ballot are unlikely to effect most people, so it's not like they really matter

The Larch: tallguywithglasseson: Jesus farking christ am I glad we defeated the 'voter ID' amendment in Minnesota this year.

And just as an aside, I do think that a national identity card, given for free to every single permanent resident in the United States, would be a good idea. And once we get to the point that 98% of the people in the United States possess a national identity card, I think we should start using them for voting.

Basically, my scheme is this: Every single permanent resident in the United States should have a national identity card. And every single citizen over the age of 18 who has a national identity card should be automatically registered to vote.

I believe that our goals should be: every citizen over the age of 18 has a national identity card, every citizen with an identity card is registered to vote, and every citizen who is registered to vote does vote.

But the voter ID laws that most states are trying to pass really are just voter suppression efforts, and are shameful.


In fact, a Free Republic member actually proposed an ID system such as that which you have suggested, but with one caveat: individuals with zero federal income tax liability would be denied an ID card.

He used the actual word "disenfranchise" to describe what he explicitly endorsed doing to such individuals.

They should just rename that website "Poe's Republic", and be done with it.

Hell, why doesn't he go all the way and only have ID cards issued to people who own land?

Perhaps he rents.

umad: Generation_D: And no blithering from the local pissed off Republican contingent about voter fraud this year either. As the y got their a--es handed to them statewide on about every race that was competitive. other team didn't recount the ballots over and over again until the final tally ended up in their favor this time

FTFY


The Republicans didn't claim my vote was invalid this year, thats a start at least. Effing asswits.

Dino Rossi was as crooked as the rest of them. Good thing he lost. Glad he's out of politics now.

Am I missing something, or, won't these ballots also affect a lot of other races, and more significantly than the Presidency, since Obama could give back Ohio (and Florida, and Virginia) and still win.

But, I'm sure some other races were pretty close, and these additional counts could change the winners?

I'm not saying Rossi was an angel or anything. I'm saying that election was shady as all hell.
