It was reported today on a Belgian newspaper website.

Basically it's said that Ohio internauts advised the Franklin county's officials that they were concerned about the fact that, according to the official numbers, Bush had won 4258 votes where 638 people had voted. He actually only had 365 votes.


The officials say there was a "computer problem" in the voting office. How suspicious is that, when you know that we talk about a "too close to call" state which determined the new US president? ...

Bogue électoral

Une erreur d'ordinateur dans un bureau de vote de l'Ohio a donné un bonus de 3.893 voix au républicain George W. Bush alors que, selon un décompte officiel, iln'y a recueilli que 365 suffrages, indique le quotidien Columbus Dispatch. Ce sont des électeurs qui ont alerté les autorités après la diffusion des résultats, bureau par bureau, sur le site internet officiel du comté de Franklin où est situé la capitale de l'Ohio, Columbus. Les résultats publiés sur le site du comté donnaient 4.258 voix à M. Bush contre 260 à son rival démocrate John Kerry dans ce bureau de vote où seulement 638 électeurs avaient voté. C'est la différence entre le nombre de votants et les résultats obtenus par les deux candidats qui a alerté certains électeurs.

No no no... there were *no* voting problems anywhere ever. This is all a big conspiracy by the bleeding heart liberals to make Bush look bad. Everything went smooth and fair!

Right, mboyle? I mean, you were totally there, so you should know.

Bush did win by a large margin though in Ohio. If it was much closer, then I'd be a little concerned. As much as I wish Kerry had won, I really don't think Bush won by cheating. I just think the Democratic party lost it by angering the evangelical Christians.

You're probably right, but what if it's not the only county this happened?

In 2000 it was FL.
Now in 2004 it's OH.

Same old shit.

Well, that mistake made for a large margin if you ask me. If they repeated such a thing a couple of times...

Why don't they just let everyone vote by mail? Then it could really be checked. Wasn't there one state that voted by mail? Oregon I thought.
