Butler County vote machines lost 105 votes

A recently discovered computer glitch caused at least 105 votes in West Chester to go missing after the March 4 primary election, Butler County election officials said.

Two computer cards containing votes from touch-screen voting machines were not uploaded on election night - even though the computer reported that all cards had been read. Those votes have since been counted and were included in final, official results approved last week.

Officials say they don't yet know whether the same glitch may have affected results from previous elections in Butler County or elsewhere. Forty-four of Ohio's 88 counties - including the urban counties of Lucas (Toledo), Montgomery (Dayton) and Stark (Canton) use the same software - from Premier Election Solutions - as their primary vote-counting system

This is because the Democrats ran the election this year.

No - it's because the republicans contracted with campaign contributors for the machines that not only don't work - but automatically cover up their own errors -- what a beautiful thing when the gop can computerize corruption right into the computer program lolol.

(actually, i think this is pretty bad - how could this happen? it makes no sense)

Cheviot sports authority: No it's because "Premier Elections Solutions" is aka Diebold (a convenient name change despited all the bad publicity)-well known for their CEO in 2004, Bush Pioneer Wally O'Dell, promising to deliver Ohio to George W Bush.

It's a glitch as in a MACHINE MALFUNCTION!

Moronic Jock-The Democrats did not 'run' the election in Butler County.

You should really stick to subjects like sports, which simpleton idiots like you can actually fathom.

I'll save the tin foil hat-wearing liberal moonbats the trouble:

[with lips quivering...]

"It's Bush's fault!"

Democratic Governor means Democrats are in charge of elections, Mr Anonymous. Or isn't Butler Co in Ohio?

You have no idea what you are talking about, stupid Jock. No, having a "Democratic Governor means Democrats are in charge of elections" is not correct, not on a County level or even a state level. Having a Dem elected Secretary of State means that a Dem is 'in charge' of election oversight for the state, nut not for each County.

You should research the subject a little before you spout off again, and make yourself look like the idiot that you are. Do I have to teach you how to use 'the Google' again, moronic jock?

For 7:00 Anonymous Numskull: Actually Democrats were in charge of the election in question and are in charge of the November elections. Yes Butler Co is in Ohio.

OK Dummy, since you obviously cannot use Google, let's try this again. I will type very s-l-o-w-l-y so that you can understand it.

Thomas W. Ellis is the Chairman of the Butler County Board of Elections.


Thomas W. Ellis is also the Chairman of the Butler County Republican Party.


That means that Thomas W. Ellis is a republican. Got it?

That also means that the republicans 'run' the elections in Butler County.

I know that you jocks are not renown for your intellectual prowess, but this is simple enough that even you should be able to comprehend it.
