Maine Voter Registration Referendum

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/11/08

Maine recently changed its law to require voter registration at least two days prior to an election. It is an obvious attempt to cut down on voter registration fraud and ultimately voter fraud. The referendum would repeal that law and return Maine to same-day voter registration, a roughly 40-year-old invitation to fraud.

As of 8:23pm local time, according to the Bangor Daily News, the ballot initiative is 56 percent yes (to repeal the 2-day requirement), 44 percent no (to keep the 2-day requirement) with 5 of 594 precincts reporting.

As of 8:31pm local time, the ballot initiative is 59 percent yes to 41 percent no, with 8 precincts reporting.

As of 8:44pm local time, the ballot initiative remains 59 yes to 41 no, with 32 of 594 precincts reporting.

As of 8:57pm local time, the ballot initiative continues 59 yes to 41 no, with 73 precincts reporting. The yes vote holds a 4,300-vote advantage.

As of 9:27pm local time, the ballot initiative remains 59 yes to 41 no, with 160 of 594 precincts reporting. Yes holds a roughly 11,000 vote advantage.

As of 9:50pm local time, the ballot initiative to overturn the 2-day voter registration requirement stands at 60 percent yes to 40 percent no, with 254 of 594 precincts reporting. The yes vote holds a 23,000 vote advantage. At this point, I’m calling it Yes. Apparently, Maine voters like taking their chances with voter registration fraud and vote fraud.

As of 10:16pm local time, the Bangor Daily News has called the ballot initiative Yes. The vote stands at 60 percent yes to 40 percent no, with 339 of 594 precincts reporting. Yes holds a 33,000 vote lead.

As of 10:56pm local time, the ballot initiative stands at 60 yes to 40 no, with 429 of 594 precincts reporting. According to the Bangor Daily News, there are 959,074 registered voters in Maine. With nearly 3/4 of all precincts reporting, 245,773 votes have been counted, or a little over 1/4 of the registered voters.

As of 11:27pm local time, the ballot initiative stands at 61 yes to 39 no, with 465 of 594 precincts reporting. Yes has a 62,000 vote lead.

Arizona Recall Election

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/11/08

Republican Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce faces a recall election. Pearce is best known for being the architect of Arizona’s immigration law.

In Arizona, Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce, architect of the immigration law that thrust the issue into the national political debate, faces a recall that could throw him out of office. The Republican attempting to defeat him has made immigration a constant theme, but Pearce has a 3-to-1 fundraising advantage.

As of 9:05pm local time, the SEIU-backed Jerry Lewis has apparently defeated Russell Pearce. With all 16 precincts reporting, Jerry Lewis gained 10,816 votes for 53 percent of the vote to Russel Pearce’s 9,188 votes for 45 percent of the vote.

Ohio Issue 2 And Issue 3 Voting Is Today

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/11/08

In Ohio, voters will decide on statewide ballot issues. Issue 2, if passed, “would permit workers to negotiate on wages but not on pensions or health care benefits. It also bans public-worker strikes, scraps binding arbitration and eliminates annual pay raises for teachers.” And Issue 3, if passed, would add an amendment to the Ohio Constitution making it unconstitutional to require a person buy health insurance or prevent a person from buying health insurance of his or her choice or penalize a person for the health insurance purchased. In short, it’s the anti-ObamaCare, anti-RomneyCare Constitutional Amendment.

The polls close at 7:30pm local time, and then the counting.

As of 8:00pm local time, Issue 2 is 34 percent yes, 66 percent no, with 5 of 9522 precincts reporting. Issue 3 is 58 percent yes, 42 percent no.

As of 8:12pm local time, Issue 2 stands at 33 percent yes, 67 percent no, with 8 precincts reporting. Issue 3 stands at 59 percent yes, 41 percent no, with 7 precincts reporting.

As of 8:24pm local time, Issue 2 remains at 33 percent yes, 67 percent no, with 124 of 9522 precincts reporting. Issue 3 stands at 61 percent yes, 39 percent no.

As of 8:34pm local time, Issue 2 stands at 36 yes to 64 no, with 340 of 9522 precincts reporting. Issue 3 stands at 63 yes to 37 no, with 314 precincts reporting.

As of 8:46pm local time, Issue 2 remains at 36 yes to 64 no, with 636 of 9522 precincts reporting, the no votes holding a 163,000-vote advantage. Issue 3 stands at 63 yes to 37 no, with 629 precincts reporting, the yes votes holding a 148,000-vote advantage.

As of 9:16pm local time, AP has called Issue 2 no. The voting stands at 37 percent yes to 63 percent no, with 1792 of 9522 precincts reporting, for a 243,000 vote advantage. Issue 3 is 65 yes to 35 no, with 1774 precincts reporting, for a 284,000 vote advantage but AP has not called it yet.

As of 9:37pm local time, Issue 2 stands at 38 percent yes to 62 percent no, with 2769 of 9522 precincts reporting. No holds a 310,000 vote advantage. AP has called Issue 3 yes. The voting stands at 66 percent yes to 34 percent no, with 2742 precincts reporting. Yes holds a 390,000 vote advantage.

Remember, Issue 3 is the anti-ObamaCare, anti-RomneyCare Ohio Constitutional Amendment. Candidates running on a pro-ObamneyCare position will not like Ohio very much.

As of 9:54pm local time, Issue 2 stands at 38 percent yes to 62 percent no, with 3549 precincts reporting. Issue 3 stands at 66 percent yes to 34 percent no, with 3519 precincts reporting.

As of 10:23pm local time, Issue 2 stands at 38 yes to 62 no, with 6,280 of 9,522 precincts reporting. No holds a 556,000 vote lead. Issue 3 stands at 66 yes to 34 no. Yes holds a 724,000 vote lead.

As of 11:01pm local time, Issue 2 is 39 yes to 61 no, with 8105 precincts reporting. The vote totals currently stand at:
Yes 1,163,473
No 1,851,829

Issue 3 is 66 yes to 34 no, with 8078 precincts reporting. The vote totals currently stand at:
Yes 1,921,725
No 994,083

As of 11:34pm local time, Issue 2 is 39 yes to 61 no, with 8825 of 9522 precincts reporting. Issue 3 is 66 yes to 34 no, with 8781 precincts reporting.

Priorities

Posted by Yorkshire on 2011/11/08

Today in the happenings of the world, we have OWS harassing vendors for free food and having fights, and at OWS more rapes are being talked about amoung other crimes, We have Obama and Sarkozy bad mouthing the PM of Israel, and another accuser of Herman Cain comes along towing Ambulance Chaser Extraordinaire Gloria Aldred.

So, which of these stories is followed closely by MSM, otherwise know as the LSM? There’s no prize since we all know the answer.

Election Day, 2011

Posted by Dana Pico on 2011/11/08

I received an e-mail today from Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee:


Dear Pennsylvania Republicans,

Today is Election Day, and Republicans are counting on your vote.

With your help, we can elect principled Republican leaders to state and local office.

I hope you’ll exercise your right to vote today. Polls are open 7am – 8pm.

Sincerely,

Reince Priebus
Chairman, Republican National Committee

Well, the esteemed Mr Priebus can rest easy, because, as the button to the right indicates, I voted today!

In the Keystone State, what we have today are local elections, for the borough council, the school board, the county commission, and some ballots on retaining judges. Maybe some people don’t think those elections are important, but consider: I personally know the mayor of Jim Thorpe, I personally know some of the borough councilmen, and I personally know some of the members of the school board. If I need to speak to a county commissioner, I can.

Get above that level? Well, my state representative has met me, but I can’t say that he really knows me. I’ve never met the Governor, I’ve never met my congressman or Pennsylvania’s two senators, and I’ve never met the President of the United States. But, other than all of the money the federal government taxes away from me, the greatest impact of government on my life is at the state and local level; it’s the state which pays for the roads, and it’s the borough which plows the snow and picks up the trash.

Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), a candidate for President, said that his aim was to make the federal government inconsequential in our lives, and that’s the way it really should be. We have federalized far too much, in taxation, and in services, and then we wonder why the politicians don’t listen to us. It’s simple: they don’t know us!

Governor Perry may not win the Republican Presidential nomination, but his statement about federalism is right on target. We need our involvement with government to be far more at the local and state level, and the elections for those offices are important.
