    I can absolutely ACCEPT ballots, but I cannot reject them. If I don't accept a ballot it goes into the "back room" for further review.......

    I've pulled out ballots as "duplicate signatures" but I don't know if they were eventually counted or not.

    I think Stalin once said something like "I don't care who votes, as long as I count the votes".

      many of those photographs you link to would be illegal in my state. Probably are in Michigan too!

        and probably also in violation of whatever oath or affirmation was required of people admitted to the vote-counting sessions.

        I know as an election worker part of our oath is to maintain the secret ballot inviolable, which means we cannot in any way publicize who voted, who took which ballot in the primary, etc. etc. And we worked hard to keep media people outside the area where people were actually holding and marking ballots.

        As long as their isn't any way to identify the voter who cast the ballot. There were hundreds of ballots posted online during the Minnesota's recount which Al Franken won.

        I don't see how anyone can be prosecuted based on these ballots since the ballots cannot be tied to a voter.

        They might use the mail in envelopes and associated items to find out whether someone submitted absentee ballots in the name of another voter.

        I, for one, have no problem being led by a 3500 year old Pharaoh who was trained by space aliens on a distant star.

        (FYI) ... The Wayne County Department of Elections granted permission to take photos, of ballots that were challenged, during the Detroit Primary Election 2013 - Manual Recount of paper ballots for the offices of Mayor, City Clerk, and City Council.  In fact, the Election Recount Challengers/Volunteers were allowed up to 30 seconds, at a given time during the recount process, to take photos of challenged ballots laying on a given table.

          or any camera in ballot prep, verification or processing rooms. Only election officials can allow photography.

          I apologize for implying that photos in your diary were illegal, since it's certainly possible that they are OK by Mich. law or by election officials' permission.
