Well, in fact, in the original article, the "party affiliation is mentioned. It was edited out in the RW blogs... SURPRISE!!!
Daytona Beach Commissioner Arrested On Fraud Charges
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry and his campaign manager, Genesis Robinson, were arrested Wednesday, charged with committing absentee ballot fraud during Henry’s 2010 re-election campaign, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said. Henry is nonpartisan, which means he has no party affiliation.
I believe Anita Hill!
Better is to take a notebook and pencil and the phone numbers of your local Dem Party Office and County Elections Office.
First report any concerns to the person in charge of the polling place, take notes and then step outside and call the Dem Party Office who have trained people on duty to receive these reports of concerns and usually have a trained person on scene ASAP. Then call the County Elections office. Give your phone number and follow up your reports. When you get home, call to report to elections integrity orgs. Also report to DOJ:
Due to the protections of four federal voting rights laws, cases of qualified voters being improperly denied their right to vote or register to vote are now rare. However, in every major election, some voters are still improperly turned away from the polling place, or encounter conditions that voting difficult or confusing. Some of these incidents are accidental, others are intentional, but all should be reported.
What Should be Reported?
Any action or condition you feel prevented or was intended to prevent you from voting. Just few examples include; polls opening late or closing early, "running out" of ballots or having your identity or voter registration status improperly challenged.
Any action or condition you feel made it difficult for you to vote, including but not limited to; lack of handicapped accessibility and accommodation, lack of assistance for people with limited English ability, confusing ballots, lack of privacy while voting, generally unhelpful or unknowledgeable poll workers or officials.
How to Report Voting Problems
If you experience any problem or confusion while voting report the situation to one of the poll workers or election officials immediately. Do not wait until you have finished voting. If the election officials at the polling place are unable or unwilling to help you, the problem should be reported directly to the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. There are no special forms to use or procedures to follow--just call the Civil Rights Division toll-free at (800) 253-3931.
I always carry these phone numbers when I go to vote. I have told the story of running into two problems at my polling place-- one was a worker not understanding ID requirements and the other was elder people being disenfranchised by not having their needs accommodated.
BOTH issues were well addressed and solved by bringing them to the attention of the person in charge of the polling place. Had they not been, my next step would be to call the local Dem party, as they have people on duty that are specifically trained and knowledgeable about how to solve such issues, and will dispatch someone.
While it IS our job to keep an eye out and help to see that voting is free and unencumbered, it is not our job to be cops with cameras intimidating people at the voting places or confronting anyone. Do not speak to anyone inside the polling place but official elections workers.
Take a notepad and local phone numbers.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (CGE) - A federal subpoena, issued by Ohio attorney Cliff Arnebeck and sanctioned by the Office of Ohio Secretary of State, was served last Sunday in Washington to Karl Rove on his way to an appearance on the CBS news program Face the Nation.
In an article written by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman and published at OpEdNews.com, the federal subpoena orders Rove to testify in deposition about his role in the alleged theft of the 2004 election, and to discuss his orchestration of tens of millions of corporate/billionaire dollars in this year's General Elections on November 2.
Contacted Wednesday to comment, Arnebeck, a Columbus attorney with a long history of involvement in election related cases, notably as plaintiff attorney in the on-going King-Lincoln-Bronzeville federal lawsuit that Fitrakis and Wasserman have used to try to question Rove on an election they say the Republican campaign expert stole for George W. Bush in 2004, said of his role in the 2010 election cycle, "Rove has asked for all this money on behalf of the Republican candidates’ campaigns. Under Citizens United that still constitutes a gift to those campaigns and is still subject to limits and prohibitions of campaign finance laws. Camouflaging the gifts by running them through nice sounding non-profit corporations is nothing but the latest form of money-laundering.”
In a hearing conducted shortly before the presidential election in 2008 that garnered little attention from national or local media, Arnebeck deposed Michael Connell, Rove's former chief computer guru, whose long history working for the Bush family, and subsequently in Ohio as a contractor with Republican Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell during the 2004 election, is well documented.

Blackwell gained national prominence for his dual roles as Chief Elections Official of Ohio and honorary co-chair of the "Committee to re-elect George W. Bush" during the 2004 election. Allegations of conflict of interest and voter disenfranchisement led to the filing of at least sixteen related lawsuits naming Blackwell. Regarding voter disenfranchisement, a federal appellate court ruled, in agreement with Blackwell, that provisional ballots cast in the wrong polling location should not be counted in the election, but the court overturned his directive to poll workers that they refuse to issue provisional ballots unless satisfied as to the voter's residence. Blackwell was also named in a 2006 lawsuit related to his office's public disclosure of the Social Security numbers of Ohio residents.
We went down today to drop off our VBM ballots. My partner had spoiled one of his ballots and requested a new one, the staff member took his ballot from him, asked him which sections he wanted to change and then proceeded to put correction tape over the completed arrows and returned the spoiled ballot to him for updating.
I was shocked at 1) how she was violating his privacy in voting, 2) that she thought she what she was doing was right and couldn't understand when I told her that it was improper. She refused to give him a fresh ballot. As my partner stood there dumbfounded, I marched to another window and informed the manager who expressed shock and horror at what her staff member was doing. She immediately went and got my partner a new ballot and then pulled her staff member aside and gave her a dressing down. She returned and told me that she would be having a meeting shortly with all her staff to inform them they couldn't do this.
I can't figure out just why the clerk thought this was appropriate and couldn't see that if such changes were allowed to happen on the ballot it essentially destroyed the integrity of the ballot. Whose to say that at the end of the day at my precinct I just don't go through the ballots and remark them? We both left visibly upset wondering about how many others she had done this to and the fact that their ballot will most likely not count.
Not a good day for my county.!!!
I wonder if this clerk checked the party of the ballot before deciding to apply correction tape or give a fresh ballot?
I think this needs to be reported further.
Kris Kobach, a Republican candidate for Secretary of State in Kansas, has been all over the voter fraud issue, and has asserted that dead voters are still casting ballots. At a press conference, he said one of those so-called zombie voters was Alfred K. Brewer, who -- according to Kobach -- died in 1996 but still voted in the primary this year.
But instead of pushing up daisies, the Wichita Eagle found Brewer in his front yard, raking up leaves.
"I don't think this is heaven, not when I'm raking leaves," Brewer, a Republican, told the newspaper. "I'm just as surprised as you are."
A spokesman for Kobach's Democratic opponent Chris Biggs said in a statement that this was "exactly the kind of mistake a qualified candidate for Secretary of State would never make."Who would have thought the guy who helped write AZ Immigration law would be a lying idiot?
