Widespread Voting Problems in Nashville

Widespread Voting Problems in Nashville

http://www.tnimc.org

by Ryan Kaldari
Email: kaldari (nospam) monsterlabs.com02 Nov 2004
Modified: 08:48:56 PM Despite lengthy preparations and an
unprecidented number of early voters, reports of voting problems were
widespread across Nashville today. In a large number of cases
involving questions of voter eligibility, poll workers were unable to
reach Metro election officials to resolve the problems, and in many
cases had to send voters away without voting or with instructions to
come back later. Why election officials were not able to respond to
poll workers in a timely fashion is not yet clear. Other problems
included confusion over ansentee ballots, lack of handicapped access
to polling facilities, long lines, and voters being required to
declare their party affiliation before being allowed to vote.

Why election officials were not able to respond to poll workers in a
timely fashion is not yet clear. Other problems included confusion
over absentee ballots, lack of handicapped access to polling
facilities, long lines, and voters being required to declare their
party affiliation before being allowed to vote.

At the Una Baptist Church polling facility in Antioch, many voters
endured 2 hour waits in order to vote. Lack of adequate staffing and
problems communicating with the election commission downtown were
cited as reasons for the slowness. In cases in which poll workers
were required to call election officials to verify a voter's
information, they often had to keep calling for hours before being
able to reach an election official. Other polling locations reported
similar wait times, while some even sent voters home without voting
if they were unable to confirm a voter's information. At the Jewish
Community Center in Bellevue, for example, a dozen would-be voters
had already been turned away by 9am. Many had waited in line for 2
hours before being told they would be unable to vote.

At the Woodbine Church polling facility in south Nashville confusion
over absentee ballots prevented some National Guardsmen from voting.
According to the voter rolls, the Guardsmen were listed as absentee
voters and thus were ineligible to vote even though none of them had
filed absentee ballots.

At the 15th Avenue Baptist Church polling facility, voters reported
being required to declare their political affiliation before being
allowed to vote. According to reports, once a voter had declared
which party they were voting for, the poll worker would then 'set the
machine accordingly'. Similar stories were reported in Wilson County
as well.

Efforts by the Tennessee Independent Media Center to reach the Metro
Election Commission for comment were unsuccessful.

Update 11/3/2004: In an interview with a Nashville City Paper
reporter, Metro election commission board member A.J. Sterling claims
that the election in Nashville really "went good", although he did
admit that the provisional voting procedures probably needed some
streamlining. The Interm Administrator of Elections, Ray Barrett,
reported that everything went smoothly. "We had lines this morning
and most of the day and it's great... too bad they don't turn out
this way every time."

Tulsa Ok GOP Voter Intimidation

Native Americans site voter intimidation http://www.okimc.org
by nose4news Tuesday, Nov 2 2004, 2:16pm
national / first nations issues / news report



Your right to vote may be challenged today, copy this article and
take it with you
Be prepared to take action, violations under investigation
From Native American Times:


TULSA OK
Louis Gray 11/2/2004

With the stakes never higher, it appears there maybe those who try to
prevent minority voters from voting and some important information to
consider as you head to the polls. There has already been allegations
of voter intimidation in South Dakota.

Will Oklahoma require ID from registered voters at polling places?
And what constitutes acceptable proof of identity at polling places?
Good questions. With so many new Native American voters registered
this year here is some important information to know before you head
to the polls.

All registered voters are required to present proper ID before voting
or obtaining an absentee ballot. In Oklahoma, polling places accept a
voter registration card. One receives this voter registration card
upon approval of your application. Each card lists the voters name,
address, political affiliation and the proper polling place for your
voting district.
The following forms of ID are also accepted: Oklahoma driver's
license or another form of photo identification or a government
document, utility bill or bank statement which displays name and
address.

Another important question is whom does Oklahoma consider "first-time
voters?" When does Oklahoma characterize registration forms as
sent "by mail?"

The newly-enacted federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requires that
first-time voters who register by mail provide identification at the
polls. First time voters are individuals who are voting in the first
federal election in the county. Also, if individuals have moved
within state to a different county, then their registration needs to
be verified by providing proper identification such as a photo ID or
a government document, a utility bill or a bank statement that states
name and address.

Any voter registration submitted by mail service (USPS, UPS, FedEx)
is considered "by mail."

How will Oklahoma verify eligibility of those who vote a provisional
ballot?
If one casts a provisional ballot, the individual is asked where he
or she previously registered. This information is recorded on the
ballot envelope and election officials will investigate. The voter
does not need to follow-up once the provisional ballot is cast;
however he or she may check to see if the ballot was counted or not
counted.

If you are prevented from voting immediately or are experiencing
trouble call 1-866-myvote1 to report your problem. If you are
intimidation or suppression call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

Ask for a Provisional Ballot if you are registered to vote and
refused a ballot for ANY REASON.

There are supposed to be FBI and U.S. Justice Department officals
posted throughout Oklahoma to prevent intimidaton of voters. Perhaps
for good reason.

Yesterday a Federal Judge barred the Republican Party on behalf of
Senate candidate John Thume from staking out voting precincts and
writing down license plate numbers of cars leaving a heavily
registered Indian voting station. The restraining order was brought
on by U.S. Senator Tom Daschle who is running in one of the closest
elections in the nation.

There is an investigation of Republican operatives attempting to
purchase votes in Tripp County in South Dakota.

Officials say stendents at the University of of Florida in Alachua
County have made complaints where about 4,000 potential voters had
their voting addresses changed by a group hired by the Florida
Republican Party.

Pollesters hired by the Republican Party in Florida talked students
into signing petitions to legalize marijuana or impose stiffer
penalties for child molesters, unknowingly had their party
registration switched to Republican and their addresses changed. The
college scam has also made an appearance in Pennsylvania.

Political pranksters also appeared in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania
where election officials received a flurry of phone calls about
fliers handed out at a Pittsburgh area mall and mailed to an unknown
number of homes. The flier, distributed on bogus but official-looking
stationery with a county letterhead, told voters that "due to immense
voter turnout expected on Tuesday," the election had been extended .
Republicans should vote Tuesday, November 2, it said---and Democrats
on Wednesday. A criminal investigaton has been launched.

In Wisconsin, a flier is circulated in Milawaukee's black
neighborhoods that purports to be from the "Milwaukee Black Voters
League." If you've already voted in any election this year, you can't
vote in the presidential election," the flier reads. "If you violate
any of these laws, you can get ten years in prison and your children
will get taken away from you."

Other fake letters in South Carolina claims police will arrest anyone
with outstanding fines or have failed to pay their child support who
tries to vote.

With Indian people expected to have a huge effect on the election and
are traditionally least likely to vote, the opportunities to
intimidate them is great.

If you have any problem in Oklahoma call the U.S. Attorney's office
at 918-581-6952 or the FBI at 918-664-3300.

Buildup of Chads in St. Louis Punchcard Machines Makes Voting

In precincts of St. Louis that use punch-card voting machines, the
buildup of chads has given many voters difficulty punching all the
way through. High turnout and the neglect of election officials to
empty the machines are to blame. The danger is that this situation
could lead to some ballots being discarded due to "hanging chads"--
one problem that contributed to the controversy in the 2000 election

Re: Dianne Feinstein, Architect of Bush Election Theft

URBANA ILLINOIS

http://www.ucimc.org/newswire/display/21480/index.php

Vote Early by ML
http://www.ucimc.org 02 Nov 2004
The polls are packed in what is shaping up to be a record voter
turnout. I arrived at around 9:45am at my precinct, Cunningham 12,
which is located at the Urbana City Building. Although I thought this
time would wisk me right through during this usually slow time in mid-
morning, there were short lines for Cunningham 12 and Cunningham 11,
which is co-located with 12 at the city building. Things were moving
right along and it took only about 15 minutes to get through the
line.

It's apparent that this is likely going to be a year of record voterr
turnout. You will want to try to arrive at your polling place as
early as possible if you haven't already voted, because lines are
likely to grow later in the day. However, do not give up, as long as
you are in line at 7pm, when the polls close. They are required to
allow everyone in line at 7pm to vote. In the past, this has taken
several hours, especially at campus polling locations.

Republican County clerks -- currently Mark Shelden -- have
traditionally underserved campus polls in hopes of discouraging those
typically Democratic Party leaning voters. But the votes of these
conscientious young citizens are important locally, especially with
the anti-student proposal to undermine student voting power by adding
two at-large seats to the Urbana City Council. The at-large proposal
is strongly supported by local Republicans, because they hope it
gives them a chance to dilute Democratic dominance in Urbana city
politics, so Shelden has a major incentive to make things as
difficult as he can for student voters.

At Cunningham 12, a women behind me in line was forced to cast the
first provisional ballot of the day. She had contacted Mark Shelden's
office yesterday to be sure that she could vote, since her voter
registration card had never arrived after she updated her address
from having to move. She was told to simply show up today and there
would be no problem. In fact, there is a sign at the door from
Shelden, promising that voters have the right to vote at their old
polling place if they have moved in the last 30 days.

The election judge called Shelden's office, who told her that the
woman has to cast a provisional ballot, hardly the result she
expected after what she was told yesterday. The problem is that
provisional ballots are usually not counted, so it is likely that
this woman will not see her vote count. Whether she moved in the last
30 days or not, I don't know, but voters should try everything they
can to cast a real ballot if they want it to count.

So every vote is important. Arrive at your polling place, insist on
your right to vote, and stay in line as long as you arrive before
7pm -- you will still get to vote and it is vital that every vote
count.

>>Portland ProblemsPhotos and brief report from Multnomah County
Elections office in Portland

author: Sunflower
i really like that we have vote-by-mail here in this part of Cascadia
temporarily known as Oregon. i appreciate having lots of time with
the ballot to research my choices, discuss them with friends (and
otherwise), and fill it out really slowly if i'd like, in the comfort
of my own home. But as long as i've lived here, i've never mailed it.
i always bike it up to the Multnomah County Elections Office on 10th
& Morrison in Portland. i do this for two reasons: a) i want to
assure that my ballot arrives safely where it's supposed to go, and
b) i enjoy the sense of occasion and excitement of going somewhere in
person on sElection Day.

So today i biked up there in the rain with my ballot, and the ballots
of my roommates, and i was not disappointed. It was quite a scene up
there. There was a line all the way down the block from the front
doors. "Oh shit," i thought. "i don't want to wait in that!" (i had
to be at work in an hour and it looked like it would take longer than
that!) But i soon found out the line was for people who had issues
with their ballots and needed them solved -- changes of address, etc.
Even though you must _register_ by 21 days before the sElection, you
can make changes right up to the day itself. That's what those folks
were doing.

On the other side of Morrison, folks with "Carry Oregon" (a pro-Kerry
group) were holding signs saying, "HONK IF YOU VOTED!" and also were
staffing a tent with coffee and cookies. They were there to answer
questions, help people out, and observe. Three of them had name tags
identifying themselves as legal observers, and at least one was also
a lawyer. They reported that there had been no issues at all today
here at this office, which is in great contrast to the shenanigans
happening all over the rest of the country. (Again, i was grateful
for mail-in voting, as this gives enemies of democracy a much bigger
challenge when it comes to creating fraud.)

After chit-chatting with these folks for awhile about the events
around the country, i got back on my bike and got in a line of cars
who were pulling up on 10th to deliver their ballots to County
workers. A driver would pull up, their window would go down, they'd
hand their ballot over, and the employee would put it in a big box
under a tent. The employee was impressed that i'd come out in my
raingear and carried my ballots safely in a plastic bag. i felt
totally comfortable handing them over to her, and seeing that they
were going right there into that box.

i have no illusions about the limitations of voting as a political
tactic, but i see no harm and possibly some good coming out of it.
Though i am not at all a Kerry supporter, i was happy to see the
Carry Oregon folks out there, trying to lend a hand. All in all, it
was a satisfying experience. Now it's time to get back to the day-to-
day work of making change in the world, work that doesn't start or
stop with any one sElection.

Report: 3% of Black men in Massachusetts disenfranchised
by Peter Wagner

Address: PO Box 127 Northampton MA 01061 02 Nov 2004


This is the first presidential election since Massachusetts prisoners
were stripped of the right to vote. The effected population is
disproportionately Black. More than 3% of Black men in Massachusetts
are denied the right to vote. Northampton, MA (October 31, 2004) -
When George Bush ran against Al Gore, every Black adult citizen in
Massachusetts was allowed to cast a ballot. This November, more than
one out of every hundred Black adults in the state -- and three out
of every 100 Black men -- will be denied that right, charged a new
report by the Prison Policy Initiative. The report shows that Blacks
are disenfranchised in Massachusetts at a rate 6 times higher than
for Whites.


(Massachusetts amended its constitution in 2000 to deny prisoners the
right to vote. This was the first time the constitution was amended
to take away rights from a group.)


The report, Jim Crow in Massachusetts? Prisoner disenfranchisement is
the first documentation of the racially disparate impact of prisoner
disenfranchisement in Massachusetts. Blacks are only 5.5% of
Massachusetts citizens, but are 29% of the state's disenfranchised.
Latinos are 6.8% of the state, but are 25% of those barred from the
polls.


"The history of the right to vote is generally one of continual
expansion of the franchise", said report author Peter Wagner. "It is
unfortunate that Massachusetts took a step backwards and, in effect,
told the communities that have suffered historic exclusion that they
are, in fact, not welcome at the ballot box."

Irregularities in Felton Ca

http://www.santacruz.indymedia.org
Address: HISTCON, University of California, 1156 High Street, Santa
Cruz, CA 95064 02 Nov 2004 Moments ago I voted in Felton, a small
town near Santa Cruz, California. When I entered my polling place,
St. John-s Catholic Church, the local priest told me that I had to
take off my t-shirt before I voted. I had a picture of Bush on my
chest framed by the words ?international terrorist.ヲ So I went back
outside and turned my shirt inside out. Later I found out that
election rules do prohibit the wearing of ?politicalヲ clothes in the
polling station. Fair enough. But, then they told me that I had to
vote with a pencil... On the voting booth there was a pink sign that
clearly said "to mark your ballot use ONLY the Mark-A-Vote pen
provided." We were only provided with pencils--there was not a single
Mark-A-Vote pen in sight. When I pointed this out to the election
officials, and voiced my concern that my pencil vote could be
changed, they told me to use a blue ball point pen and then color
over the pen marks with a pencil. But, they indicated that this might
make it difficult for the electronic scantron machine to read my
vote. One official made a call on her cell phone, and after she got
off the phone she began taking down some of the signs that told
voters to use the Mark-A-Vote pen. I took one of the signs and
brought it home with me. My polling place is St. John's Catholic
Church on Highway 9 at the corner of Russell Avenue in downtown
Felton. Audio: Eben Kirksey's Call to Free Radio Santa Cruz

Voting Irregularities in NYC by Disgruntled Voter
02 Nov 2004 Editor's note: NYC Voters have started to report
irregularities as they head to the polls. Add your experiences here.
Disgruntled Voter writes: "
I went to vote today in Manhattan and poll workers were not properly
trained on writing-in candidates, disadvantaging candidates like
David Cobb. The head poll worker in my precint tried to make me fill
out a provisional ballot used for unregistered voters if i wanted to
write in a candidate. On top of this, the 1-800-VOTE-NYC number tells
you no one is available and hangs up on you. Shame on the Board of
Elections. BTW, Emily Jane Goodman is running for re-election for NY
State Supreme Court. She's ruled in favor of RNC protesters and she
does not cross picket lines! This will be a vote that counts in the
everyday lives of activists. Vote Emily Jane Goodman.









Occasionally the skullduggery comes to light:
