 PRE-OWNED, PRE-VOTED BALLOTS

  posted by Sheila Parks on February 12, 2010 4:17 as 2010 MA Senate Election




On January 19, 2010, the MA Senate special election, there were some pre-owned, pre-voted ballots.  When some voters were handed their optical scan ballots to vote, the ballots already had the oval filled in for Scott Brown.  Ballots are not cars and they cannot be pre-owned.  Neither are ballots something you can pre-vote. I don't care that it was only a few ballots - that we know of.  This is not a legitimate way to run an election, to put it mildly.

Some questions remain.  Here are some of them:

- Why did Coakley start to make a fuss, rightfully, only to become silent and say and do nothing?

- Who marked Brown on those pre-owned, pre-voted ballots?

- Were there more pre-owned, pre-voted ballots like these, that we don't know of?

- Where did they mean to put these ballots?  Certainly, not in the hands of voters trying to vote.

- Were these ballots to be used for rigging the election?

- How many other pre-owned, pre-voted ballots were there that we did not see, because they were put in the "right" box - away from public view and there only for the counting?
