The Florida voting machines will work as well as any others in the country. For years we've essentially tolerated a margin of error in the voting process (as well as a margin of fraud with non-citizens or dead people “voting”).

U mean the voting "machines"?
not really concerned so much about FL, (albeit DNC quote about in sending in "lawyers" should make it interesting) as I am about places like MO, SD, TX, NJ, and MN.

There's a whole lot of fraud going on out there....

Maybe we could help you out. Brazilian electronic voting process is extremely efficient. We get the final results a few hours later and without frauds.

Note that voting is mandatory here. We had around 105 millions of people voting last October 27th. The voting closed at 5 pm. At 10 pm we already knew that Lula had won with 62% of votes. My candidate, now my president

Florida balloting will be mishandled again. Jeb will get reelected. lucky for him florida does not have a three strikes law. he should be locked up for allowing Americans to be disenfranchised.

Here's another question:

Will "dead people" be allowed to vote in Alabama's solid Democratic counties as they usually do? Will "ballot brokers" go around and collect ballots that are supposed to be for homebound citizens in Alabama so that they can help assure victory for their Democ ratic candidates?

Believe it or not, voter fraud is rampant in Alabama's historically solid Democratic counties. Don't think it just hurts Republicans either. It helps the "established" Democrats in the party primaries, and once they get "elected," they rarely face Republican opposition. Every once in awhile, someone will dare to challenge them in a Democratic primary. The "established" politicians will go around to invalids and poor people and say "you better vote for me or you will no longer receive services from the government; in fact, why don't you let my assistant complete your ballot for you?" Do you wonder why these politicians oppose stronger voter identification laws?

Fair enough, I have heard these reports. A book was mentioned in this forum about the stealing of elections by fraud, that it has been going on for decades. In a close eletion when the margin of vicory is much less than the margin of error is when all hell breaks lose.

Sorry 2000 Fl election again. - Republicans can say based on the system we have and the legal process followed W is the elected President. Dems can say that in Florida the legal voters who went to the polls on that election day did so to vote for Gore and his victory was a few thousand to tens of thousands. It is not possible to say them that is not true.

Both parties like low voter turnouts. It is easier to target and try to influence likely voters. I have voted in every election, from mundane local ballots to big time presidential elections. I have a voice mail from Pres Bush reminding me to go to the polls and vote Republican. Of course it is recorded and went out to millions of Republicans. I get 3-5 pieces of mail a day the 2 weeks before elections. My neighbor gets almost none, he does not vote.

My point is that we Americans claim to have the best system of government, the best process, etc. It is a joke. We should stop spending billions on more bombs than we need, and invest in a credible election process that works.

My wife said we received a voice mail from President Bush today as well; we have also received a call from Jimmy Buffet (asking us to vote for Deocratic Governor Don Seigelman) and a call from Randy Owen, lead singer of country music group Alabama, asking us to vote for the Republican candidate, Congressman Bob Riley.

We have the resources and equipment here in Alabama to facilitate a fraud-proof election, but there are too many "established" politicians in office to allow us to strengthen voter ID laws. I seriously have a problem with their shady attitudes towards the whole thing. It makes me sick.

I got a call from the Rally Monkey asking me to vote for (insert name here)

I presume you are a *targeted* household like myself because you always vote.

I think voting should be made easier. Some people cannot wait an hour or two as reported, to vote. I am not concerned about the less than one per cent that vote who may not be legal voters. I am concerned about the 60-70 percent that do not vote. Why can't balloting be over 2-3 days? Why can't we have a uniform national balloting system that a person only has to learn how to use once. Why cant we have a limited campaign season so voters dont get turned off by all the crap-negative campaigning?
