I mean... There is a reason you put those quotes there. 

There is NO reason that there should ever be a failure of accounting for an entire bin. Whether full, empty, used, unused, or intentionally discarded and replaced. The fact that the couldn't read the number on that green tag to the BOE and know exactly where it was supposed to be, and what should be in it, and who is responsible for it, and who last scanned it.. within SECONDS, is absolutely unimaginable. 

I used to transport narcotics for a state-run pharmacy. In bins, just like those, to care facilities all over Ohio. 

There are numbers on the bins, the meds, the tags, the orders, the sign sheet, the vehicle, and the route order and transport numbers and assigned route controller. ALL OF WHICH are known to three different cross-communicative and cross-checking entities at any given moment, without risking disclosure of protected patient information contained inside that box. 

So... No. There is NO WAY IN HELL this kind of inept bullshiat can actually be accounted for without active malevolence included in the equation.

All my poll workers were in their 20s and 30s, and the IT guy was maybe 50.

The greeters were elderly, but they weren't hauling around 70lb round trip totes, either.

It's tagged out. Tags are recorded, scanned in, out, and back in.

Ah well, as long as your personal experience at one location AND your personal experience working for private entities with financial interests and liabilities in play being EXACTLY the same as a volunteer-driven, underfunded local government operation, then clearly your expertise must win the day.

You ARE an authority and what-not. No question.

If only there was some absurdly easy way to figure out what's in the box....

Let the local media send a camera crew, have the election officials pop the zip ties with the cameras rolling. If it's just supplies, no harm no foul. If it's empty ballots, no harm no foul. If it's completed ballots replace the zip ties and hand the box over to the officials. Yeah, there will be some concerns over whether any new ballots managed to fall into that open slot while the box was unaccompanied, but at least the existence of the mess will be acknowledged. This "nothing to see here" bullshiat just feeds the conspiracy theories.

This is the 3rd time in 20+ years this event has happened and I've never missed one.

Last one my son was 6 yrs old and he's 27 now. He doesn't know about the tickets yet, as it's his big xmas gift this year. He's gonna be off his rocker over it. I can't wait.

CSB time: UHF was one of my favorite movies as a teen, and I even sat through the commentary on the DVD.  Al and the other actors addressed the character of Kuni (and his students and associated wackiness) with a sort of "we couldn't get away with this today, and we shouldn't have done it then" embarrassed sort of mentality.

I haven't seen those zip ties before. Are they one time use or reuseable?
Seems odd to secure supplies with one time use ties, much less have a need for a tie at all.

I read this one yesterday elsewhere, but didn't submit. Seems like by today there would be more to the story today, like a pic of inside and "an official opened the box".

TheBigJerk: Provisional Ballots.

Every time I hear about Provisional Ballots I hear about them being purged, and then I hear nothing being done about that.


I'm convinced the whole point of the massive voter purges in Florida and Georgia were done to create a large amount of provisional ballots by those purged voters and then argue that provisional ballots shouldn't be counted.

Between December 2016 and September 2018, Florida has purged more than 7 percent of its voters.

But whatever.


The article mentions that Provisional Ballots are put in a zippered orange bag for transport back to the Elections Dept; which is similar to how it's done here in Texas (although my county's bags are green and/or purple).  The label on the tub is obviously not something done for an 'official' Elections item and done for the pollworkers convenience that day.

On the other hand, the tub needs to be/should have been opened in public with a news cameraman broadcasting live to verify the tub was empty of Provisional ballots.
