  •  Do they have auditable vote paper trails? (1+ / 0-)

    Central tabulation should be audited too. I feel that voting block was highly motivated in border states this year.

    It's reasonable to audit the vote and central vote count in this case.

    •  Nueces County didn't… (1+ / 0-)

      …but Cameron and Willacy did. Nueces using something called an eSlate, which allows you to vote a straight ticket, doesn't give you a receipt, and has confusing controls that can create screw-ups, I almost erased my vote for Solomon.

      The biggest failing was that Solomon Sr. just assumed he was going to win. After Farenthold released his internal showing him up by 8 points that should have set off an alarm bell for Ortiz. Nope. Solomon Jr. told me I should just ignore the poll, it was a push poll.

      I do expect that Farenthold will be gone in 2012 as his seat will be a top tier target to return to the blue team.

      Teh stoopidTM, it hurts. Buy smart, union-printed, USA-made, signs, stickers, swag for everyone:
