Cook County Ballot Box Tries To Cast GOP Votes For Democrats



” Early Voting in Illinois got off to its typical start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.

  Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

“ I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

  The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race. “

Voters in Colorado have been busy over the past few months with a recall election after the state passed sweeping new gun control laws which included a ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition. Voters have their sights set on two officials in particular, Colorado Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron, who will learn whether they’ll keep their current positions in public office after recall election polls close Tuesday. 

Gun rights advocates launched the recall initiative against Colorado Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron because they voted for stricter gun laws, including limiting the size of ammunition magazines and requiring universal background checks.”








Legal fights already have erupted over early voting in Ohio and Florida, and storm damage poses challenges in New York and New Jersey.

  ” There was the actual storm. Then there is the metaphorical perfect storm.

With polls showing a close presidential race, fears have risen that the integrity of Tuesday’s presidential election could be thrown into doubt by either damage from super storm Sandy, which has created enormous voting challenges in New York and New Jersey, or the confluence of ballot box disputes in battleground states.

Armies of lawyers were at the ready Monday as tussles continued over voting, especially in Ohio and Florida, the two states considered most likely to throw the presidential election into an overtime ballot dispute reminiscent of the Bush-Gore race of 2000.”
