Cuyahoga Cnty Diebold Discrepancies [BradBlogAlert] CNN's Lou Dobbs:
Cuyahoga Cnty Diebold Discrepancies CNN's Lou Dobbs: An Electronic Voting Machine Debacle In Ohio | more

Utah newspapers need to REPORT the news coming out of Cuyahoga County, where former Salt Lake County Election Official Mike Vu is in charge of a Diebold voting system like Utah's.

85% of the VVPAT Ballots and VVPAT Summaries reconciled after the primary manual count, where approximately 15% required a secondary count
1.4% of the VVPAT cartridges exhibited missing ballots.
16.9 % of VVPAT tapes showed a discrepancy of 1 - 5 votes between the tally of ballots and the results report; 2.1 % showed a discrepancy of over 25 votes.
During the manual recount, team members discovered 40 VVPAT tapes (9.66%) that were either destroyed, blank, illegible, missing, taped together or otherwise compromised.
Identifying information on the VVPAT tape such as precinct information and machine identification was inconsistent, as were the summary reports printed at the end of the day. 2.8% of the VVPATs were missing machine ID numbers; 5.4% did not identify the precinct, increasing the difficulty of a meaningful
audit and raising questions about the integrity of the vote count.
VVAPTs showed evidence of booth workers using trial and error to print reports and start up or close down the machines; workers apparently attempted to overcome printer problems by shutting down machines, removing and replacing cards, and restarting machines.
72% of the labels identifying cannisters containing the VVPAT tapes were missing information. 46% of the canister labels were blank.
Booth workers frequently failed to sign the tapes. Such failures in chain of custody also increase the risk of a legal challenge.

Lou Dobbs of CNN has focused on Cuyahoga Cnty problems for two days in a row. There were a half dozen news articles just yesterday re Cuyahoga Cnty Diebold problems.

Utah election officials deceive Utah's press by claiming that Diebold TSx electronic vote counts are infallibly accurate, covering up evidence of problems, and refuse to verify Utah's vote count integrity by counting the voter-verifiable paper ballot records, even when state law requires a recount in close elections!!

Joe Demma says that our voter verifiable paper records will only be used in "extreme circumstances" which did not include state-required recounts in Utah's recent primary election.
