New Mexico Recount: Open Thread

In a press release dated December 24, 2004, Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb said that yesterday's decision by the New Mexico Supreme Court, denying Cobb's request to immediately start a recount of the presidential vote, was an insult to the democratic process and the citizens of New Mexico. "We are seeking a recount in New Mexico to protect the right to vote and ensure that all votes are counted. We came here expecting cooperation, or at least compliance with the law, from New Mexico's Governor and Secretary of State. However, despite broad support across the political spectrum for an honest audit of New Mexico's voting system, we have been stonewalled and obstructed at every step by the Democratic Party leadership of this state," said Cobb.

Voting in America: Still Separate and Unequal?

Lynne Serpe writes: "How could there be such a glaring disparity between the white and black sections of Cuyahoga County in the distribution of provisional ballots? And why would so many African Americans wait for up to ten hours in some instances to vote using provisional ballots instead of regular ballots? ... By looking only for provable fraud, and not investigating the obvious question why minority voters and white voters had extremely different experiences on Election Day, [newspaper] editors — and each of us — are choosing to accept as a given that when minority voters receive second-class status, it is not really news... That is indeed a sad commentary for a country that purports to be ready to support the development of democracy in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Ukraine. Fifty years after Rosa Parks took a stand, I guess it is still okay if some of us ride in the back of the bus."

Should private corporations have remote dialup access to voting machines?

The Green Party Recount Coordinator for Fulton and Henry counties reports: "The Director for Fulton told me that Triad is able to reprogram the computer to count only the Presidential ballots by remote dial-up. I do not know when after the election that occurred."

What the Recount Was Not Allowed to Count

Since November 2nd, we have been conducting a recount of the ballots to make sure that every vote got counted.  What we have not been able to recount, however, are the thousands of votes that were never cast because polling locations were changed at the last minute, misleading calls and flyers were used, and insufficient voting machines were brought to precincts (mostly in Democratic and minority precincts).  Do you have a story about how voting was curtailed in Ohio on Election Day?  Please share it.
