  • Arizona has the same. It's farking pathetic.
  • Do you think Karl Rove is pointing to this as a means to distract the Koch Brothers from him funneling the SuperPAC money to his offshore accounts?

  • when your stated goal is voter suppression, this looks like everythings going according to plan.
  • So there are a number of uncounted ballots and each will eventually be counted once it's determined if they're valid or not. And it almost certainly won't change the outcome of Ohio because of where they're from. What's

    I guess some guy named "Chad" is in charge of that count?
  • Have we not already covered that Ohio sucks? We were aware of this before, during, and after the election.

    Sometimes incompetence just...continues. Don't pretend to be surprised.

    You don't think that in 2012 maybe a system to count the votes at LEAST within a few days is too much to ask?

    No, it doesn't look like it will affect the vote, and even if it did Obama wins without Ohio anyway, but still, come the fark on! This isn't rocket surgery.
  • The comments on that thread are priceless. The ones where they're saying the "election is not over" until all of the votes are counted is the most priceless.

    Sorry Ohio, Florida and Arizona. You've effectively rendered your states irrelevant with your shenanigans.

    Why yes, I am amused by your shenanigans.
  • once they get to potato, they get confused and need to take a break.

    Hey! The Chad is great!

    When hundreds of thousands of people cast their votes in a way that makes it more difficult to verify and count them (especially when it's more than it has been in the past), it takes longer. Look at California - they have millions of uncounted ballots still.

    I agree that the voting system needs to be improved--perhaps even federally regulated for national races. But I also think the secretary's office can take its time to sort through 300,000 provisional and absentee paper ballots. If Ohio was close enough to trigger a recount, I think they should take even longer.

    In my mind, Minnesota's very transparent and coordinated recount of the Franken-Coleman race is ideal. The Supreme Court preventing the true outcome of Florida in 2000 is not. Taking your time and establishing methods is preferable.
  • So Florida finished their vote counting before at least one other state? Way to go!

    /still finds it hilarious that after all the time Romney spent campaigning in FL, the fact that they held the RNC there and all the shady registration shenannegans the republicans pulled, not only did he still lose FL, it didn't matter that he lost FL

    Saw that on Maddow last night...blew me away. 18,000 counted per day, with 300,000+ remaining to be counted -by Friday.

    What happens to the votes left over that aren't counted by Friday? Tossed.

    Unbelievable.

    Doo doo doobie doo!

    Farking sad, we need someone like Jimmy Carter to monitor our elections because we can't run them as well as Nicaragua.
  • Perhaps the law could be changed so that provisional ballots will be counted on election day instead of ten days after the election?
  • Certifying over 200,000 provisional ballots can take some time.
  • Ohio is the Florida of the mid-west.
  • Should we bother? They aren't going to agree with the teleprompter anyways.
  • We have a system that can flash-fry a buffalo in 40 seconds...but we want it NOW!

    srsly? Everyone responsible for that fiasco should get one UFIA for each citizen's vote they throw away.
  • Ummm . . . if they haven't counted them, how do they know how many there are? Just askin'
