Let's try this again: Kissell Update Thread

Reposting of Screwy's locked up entry . . .

I thought we could use a separate thread for the NC-08 nail biter. RANT got front-paged at dKos for his diary, so go leave a comment there as well.

Donate here to help Larry with legal costs.

The State Board of Elections page is here.

Looks like they either stopped for supper

or slipped into a time warp.

COME ON FLIPPER: Admit your supreme unsuitability for public service and CONCEDE.

Hahahaha

Yeah, why doesn't someone tell him that Congress is not going to be any fun anymore. No more late-night strongarmings in the coatroom...no more Tom DeLay making him cry...the cool kids wouldn't play with him when they were in charge, does he think the Democrats are going to be any kinder?

Hahahaha Plus

they probably won't even let him name anymore post offices.

Republicans looking for recount volunteers

From the NC Republican Party newsletter:

"In the 8th Congressional District, Robin Hayes’ opponent has also indicated that he will call for a hand-eye re-count.

We will need volunteers across North Carolina to monitor this re-count. If you can take the day off, or even a few hours, it would be very helpful. We will provide instructions to volunteers on recount observation procedures."

I'm guessing they probably mean recount obstruction procedures??

Go Larry!

Any calls for Dem recount observers? There might be a few folks around here available to help out for a day or two ... or twenty. :)

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Absolutely

The call has gone out several times. I've already responded.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Contact your local board of elections

That's where you volunteer. Nobody forgot about you! How could they?! You helped narrow the margin in Cabarrus County! I'm getting emails from political fair vote groups, etc that I signed up for last year during the whole voting machine selection mess.

We need to contact our local boards of election to volunteer. My hours are limited. Contact the board closest to you and then contact the Kissell campaign.

Im set up to be an observer

Alright, I'll be observing the recount this week.
I'll be used and abused wherever is most useful.
I wouldn't have it any other way ;-)

Good for you!

Hand recount rules?

What are the rules for getting a hand-eye recount? Who pays for it? Anyone know how many of those nasty "undervotes" there may be out there that only a hand count would catch?

Don't give up Larry - we-re with you all the way through this!

With Mecklenburg (finally!) complete, vote tally stands at:

Robert C. (Robin) Hayes REP 60,913
Larry Kissell DEM 60,574

Machine recount to begin Monday.

Robin Hayes Hates Puppies

machine recount s/b same as original, hand count will be diff

I am not sure why the state bothers with a machine
recount, but that is the law.

A hand count of the paper ballots on the optical scan
may turn up some votes, but if the machines were correctly
programmed, then there may be little difference.

Hard to know, but the voters deserve to know.

We have conducted audits (more like sample counts) of
NC elections this May and also last week.
This is new for our state. There were only slight differences
between the paper and the machine counts.

Warren county had the largest discrepancy, looks like a
poll worker forgot to upload some of the touchscreen results.

I keep hoping for what you mentioned......

They find a machine that wasn't uploaded in Meck.
