[L]ast week, the Republican-run Ottawa County Board of Elections sent a mailer to 2,300 voters in three northwestern Ohio precincts informing them that Election Day was November 8. It is, of course, November 6.According to Huff Post:
Further, voters were told in the mailer their voting location had been moved to a building on the east side of Danbury High School. Unfortunately, the actual voting location is on the west side of the high school.
Election board director JoAnn Friar, a Republican, blamed the mistake on a computer glitch...So true, dear, and thanks for that. Now: HOW CAN THAT BE A COMPUTER ERROR? Computers don't make those kinds of errors all by themselves. Someone sits at a keyboard and enters information ...
The Associated Press reported that Carol Ann Hill, deputy director of the county's Board of Elections, said 7 percent of the 30,000 registered voters in the county were mailed incorrect postcards. Hill added that the relatively small percentage 'doesn't make it any better.'
November 8th is the last possible date an election for Federal office can be held under Federal law. According to the Election Archives of the League of Women Voters, November 8 has been an election date only twice in this century - in 2005 and 2011. They were both off-year elections (typically used to fill only Federal office vacancies). In neither year, did Ohio have an election on November 8.
The Ottowa County Board of Elections cannot be heard to say it was just a couple silly little mistakes, troublesome ... and Yes, they'll just undo it by sending out a corrective mailing.
THIS is overt election fraud. When perpetrated by election officials, the parties responsible ought to be removed from office and replaced immediately. "Computer errors" like that don't just happen.
No wonder the international community wants to send election monitors to America!
