Default Massive [idiots will jump to conclusions] in St. Lucie County, FL – 141% Turnout

http://watchdogwire.com/florida/2012...a-141-turnout/

Quote:
Only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. The unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10% ). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.
Makes me wonder how much of this happened in other swing States, I am thinking now Obama did not win the election it was stolen for him.

Do you really think there were 72k+ plus votes cast using in person voter fraud... Clearly something went wrong, how about we wait to find out what actually happened.

Notice they say cards cast, not voters? It's a two card ballot. They counted 124,000 actual ballots if you look at the results. Just about half the "cards cast"

Holy crap. This is on every right wing wacko website I have ever seen. Its a who's who of crazy!

It's a completely made up story that has to do with a two two part ballot.

This is why we must completely destroy the right wing wackos. They can't be trusted with democracy.

Why the fuck can't those on the right ever present something honestly for actual discussion instead of this bullshit?

Edit: county by county turnout numbers.

I don't understand why FL kept having voting problem year after year. Did they learn anything from the Bush vs. Gore fiasco?

Why yes, yes they did. They learned that stealing an election is loads of fun.

Anyone who thought the explanation was "voter fraud" needs to reconsider how they approach problem solving. No matter what problem you're looking at, when you're presented with a possible answer, for God's sake run it through your BS detector first. Did it REALLY sound right to anyone that at least 1/3 of in person voting was fraudulent even if there was 100% voter turnout? What kind of thought process leads to THAT being seen as the most likely explanation?

More places with the same problem;

Voter fraud? Boston reports 129% voter turnout, 79% for Obama; 74% for Elizabeth Warren

Voter Fraud: Obama Won %108 of Registered Voters in Ohio County
http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenf...n-ohio-county/

What are the odds of this;

What Luck! Obama Won Dozens of Cleveland Districts with 100% of the Vote

Thats it double down on the stupid. Might want to read your own thread where you've already been proven wrong.

Yes same problem, idiots like you don't even read the friggin links that you post. Lock and ban this idiot

Quote:
UPDATE 2: A reader from Boston wrote and told me that the ballots there were two pages, which would possibly account for the number of cards cast. Also, a poll worker on Reddit confirmed that “cards cast” would indeed line up with the number of pages on the ballot.

So, actual voter turnout in Boston was somewhere closer to 64.5%, not 129%. The number of votes cast backs this up. Best-case scenario would be that whoever prepared the “Unofficial Results” screwed up the turnout columns by counting each ballot page as a voter.

In this case, the 79% Obama vote wouldn’t necessarily be fraudulent. It would just indicate that Boston is full of liberal zombies. Even in the case of a simple clerical error, however, the confidence in the result gets greatly diminished.
