Election Problems in VA-11?

By Greg L | 5 November 2010 | Keith Fimian, Gerry Connolly | 11 Comments

Are we looking at a battle royale over voting irregularities in the 11th District?  From the looks of Fairfax GOP Chairman Anthony Bedell’s email, it certainly seems that way.

-In Fairfax County, the voting machines failed to register votes from over 800 ballots, including 106 in the Sideburn precinct alone. (Keith Fimian won that precinct 58% – 40%.) In Prince William County, the machines failed to register votes on more than 200 additional ballots.

-In several precincts, there were actually more votes than voters. That is, voting machines reported a higher number of votes than the number of voters marked on the pollbooks as having voted in the election.

-As of Election Day, there were over 1,150 absentee ballots that had been mailed out to military and other overseas voters but had yet to be received back in the 11th Congressional District.

-We also understand that officials in Prince William County rejected over 280 absentee ballots, with another 200-300 absentee ballots being rejected in Fairfax County.

Nah, it couldn’t be that Boss Connolly tried to steal an election, could it?

    Aren’t the electoral boards controlled by the Republicans?

    If Connolly can’t steal this election, he doesn’t deserve the job.

    Electoral boards in VA are made up of 1 dem, 1 GOP, and 1 member of the governor’s party. Since McDonnell is gov, that means the electoral board is run by 1 dem and 2 republicans. Sorry, but I don’t think that means Connolly would be able to steal this election.

    Do you know the reasons why they were rejected (in PWC) - My mother voted absentee and wants to make sure her vote was counted.

    Anon, do you really think that the only possible source of voting fraud in Virginia would be the electoral board?

    isn’t the Electoral Board in charge of running the election? Who won the precincts with the higher number of votes than voters?

    Three people overseeing all the precincts in a county is a very unlikely place to see electoral fraud. They only pass along data they got from the precincts (if it doesn’t directly go to SBE, which might well happen) and oversee policy implementation. If you want to mess with an election, you really have to do it at the lowest level, otherwise the fraud and who is behind it is very obvious.

    If fraud and cheating is found and can be proven, shouldn’t somebody go to jail??????

    I had a problem with voting machine in Lakeridge, Va. The voting machine number is 3429A or 34298. Hopefully they are checking that machine as well.

    The last few elections went off without a hitch. I was very surprise, because election officials take pride in their perfect machines in this area.

    The official numbers come from the machine printout, which is recorded by the electoral board during the canvassing, and viewable to the public at the courthouse afterwards. In order for someone at the precinct level to commit fraud, they would have to either hack the machine (in front of other precinct workers) or vote multiple times on a a machine (again in front of other precinct workers). The precinct chief and co-chief are supposed to be from different parties so they would be very unlikely to cooperate in fraud. I don’t really see a plausible way to commit fraud here without being caught.

    Whether it is fraud or simply technology failure, it seems that serious consideration of a manual recount be made to ensure the legitimacy of the results. Is it possible to retroactively validate whether voters are legal citizens or not?
