    Ohio voting machine software patch unvetted and going to court

    http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Electio...ction-Day-case


    A federal lawsuit filed Monday in Columbus, Ohio, charges the secretary of state's office with illegally installing untested software on voting systems in dozens of counties – a step that creates a digital “back door,” which someone wishing to alter vote totals might be able to exploit.


    The suit seeks a temporary injunction to prevent the state from using the software in Tuesday's election. A hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. in the US District Court for the southern district of Ohio, eastern division. If granted, an injunction could prevent Ohio votes from being formatted by the new software and sent to the office of Secretary of State Jon Husted (R) after polls close.

    The scores of early voters who showed up at the polls shortly after sunrise Saturday, determined to beat the crowds, were counting on other people sleeping in.They didn’t.
    When 37 polling sites in Miami-Dade and Broward counties opened at 7 a.m. on the last day of early voting, two had five-hour waits. The wait was four hours or longer at three other sites.
    And the waits only got longer.
    Voters in line by the time closed at 7 p.m. were allowed to vote. At 6:42 p.m., the Miami-Dade elections department estimated that a half a dozen sites had six-hour lines. On Friday, the Miami-Dade voters had stayed open until 11 p.m.
    At the Miramar Library on Saturday night, 56-year-old Dan Whiting said he thought the line would shrink as the day grew older.

    He was wrong. He arrived at around 6:30 p.m. and his expected wait time was four to five hours. The line had about 550 people.

    There were complaints that votes for Romney were being recorded as votes for Obama. Are the lawyers there to prevent this from being corrected? That would make sense for union thugs or Democrat operatives. That would also explain the "patches" that the lawyers want to stop.

    Ohio voters are facing extremely long lines at polling locations on Sunday. Early voting in the state has been reduced from the five weekends before the election to only the weekend right before Election Day.
    A federal appeals court ruled against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and in favor of the Obama campaign in October, allowing hours to be extended in the final three days before the election. Husted took the case to the Supreme Court, which declined to hear it.
    Early voters in 2008 were much more likely to be African-American in the Ohio counties that include the major population centers of Columbus and Cleveland, according to a study by Northeast Ohio Voter Advocates. Blacks accounted for 56 percent of all in-person early votes in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, while they accounted for 26 percent of votes overall, the study found. In Franklin County, which includes Columbus, African Americans cast 31 percent of early votes and 21 percent of votes overall.

    We need to get rid of these software based systems until such time as they are allowed to be 100% transparent.

    There will be hysteria.

    The trick is focusing on what are real glitches and what is dumbfuckery.
