American election fraud - It's started already

Oh dear. It's happening already: "Early voting has begun, and problems are already emerging at the polls. In West Virginia, voters using touchscreen machines have claimed their votes were switched from Democrat to Republican. In North Carolina, a group of McCain supporters heckled a group of mostly black supporters of Barack Obama. In Ohio, Republicans are being accused of trying to scare newly registered voters by filing lawsuits that question their eligibility."

America - leader of the democratic world - Not.

Will the Democrats have the guts this time to challenge Republican cheating and intimidation? They didn't in 2004.

Look for the gap between exit polls and the final result. Exit polls are very accurate. Correlation between the two is a key indicator of the fairness or otherwise of an election.

Problems with the software?
Yes indeed. But why is there a problem?

"Three Putnam County voters say electronic voting machines changed their votes from Democrats to Republicans when they cast early ballots last week.

This is the second West Virginia county where voters have reported this problem. Last week, three voters in Jackson County told The Charleston Gazette their electronic vote for “Barack Obama” kept flipping to “John McCain”.

In both counties, Republicans are responsible for overseeing elections. Both county clerks said the problem is isolated.

They also blamed voters for not being more careful."

And here is an affidavit from a software engineer who was asked to create software to switch votes:
