Provisional AND absentee?

I wonder what the breakdown is...absentees automatically count, right? Provisionals are not automatic....unless you mean provisionals that will be counted, after others are rejected.

‘PROVISIONAL’ means if it has votes for (D) it’s fine. If it has votes for (R) is is suspect and must be thrown out.............

Has Mia Love started throwing around “racist” and “hater” yet?

No...of course not.

Good Luck, Mia!

Here’s an update:

“Matheson started the day holding a 2,646-vote lead after Election Day.

Utah County released unofficial updated numbers that showed Love shaving 1,193 votes from that lead. Scott Hogensen, the chief deputy clerk, said the final numbers could change some before they are presented to the county commission this afternoon, but they are not expected to vary by much.

Juab County has finalized its results, with Love picking up 27 new votes to 24 for Matheson, cutting just three votes from the lead, which currently stands at 1,450.

...

Salt Lake County had nearly 44,000 absentee and provisional ballots countywide. About 54 percent of the Election Day votes in the county were in the 4th District, meaning about 23,000 of the outstanding ballots would be expected to fall into that congressional district.”

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/politics/55316623-90/absentee-ballots-county-election.html.csp

If there were 23,000 provisionals and absentees in the Salt Lake County portion of the district remaining to be counted, then Mia Love would need a bit over 53% of them to take the lead. That sounds doable. We’ll find out soon whether she was able to make it.

Here's the key:

Who is counting the votes?

And who is monitoring them?

In 2001 FR members (called an “angry mob” [I have the t-shirt])entered the counting rooms in FL and caught them punching chads for Gore and putting Bush votes in Gore's pile.

This counting has to be watched real closely.

See what happened in FL with West's attempt for a congressional seat, the vote was counted against him even though irregularities were found.

Provisional votes are from people who showed up at the wrong polling place, who messed up their ballot, etc. - which is why they almost invariably favor the Democrat candidate.

There is no valid justification for "provisional ballots".

If someone can't get their act together and register properly and on time, well ahead of the election, it's just too damned bad for them.

Losing so many close House races is both bad news and good news. The bad news, is we lost them. The good news that most of the races we won were not even close.. meaning the GOP will many opportunities to advance in 2014 by taking another stab at the close races that were lost this year.

Just a coincidence that two conservative black Republicans both lose excruciatingly close contests. How much money was wasted by the GOP on pie in the sky hopes of winning Pennsylvania and Michigan that could have been diverted to assist West and Love?

There has been a lot of cheating in close races and even in not so close; I live in a GOP county in FLorida, but the Dems did everything from voter intimidation (mysterious legal letters) to hacking the database to keep turnout down. That wasn’t because they thought they had a chance in my county, but because they wanted the state to go for the Dems (which it did).

The whole key is to have huge margins that they can’t cheat their way around. Without cheating, we probably would have run...but we didn’t turn out enough voters to have a cheat-proof margin, and the Dems knew that.

Who is counting the votes?

The system is so FUBAR'd I only trust one group to do it, the Military, i.e. the National Guard etc.

* Let them deliver, corral, protect and count them on camera and broadcast it on public access TV.

The volunteers earning $7.50 and hr. ain't cutting it for me....

If the lunkheads who cast votes for the Libertarian had voted for Mia Love, she would have won the election on November 6th. What is it about the Libertarians that they can’t even support a bonafide conservative candidate?

“What is it about the Libertarians that they can’t even support a bonafide conservative candidate?”


Their problem is that they capitalize the L. If they were merely libertarian, they could vote for the conservative Republican with whom they agree on most important issues and thus defeat the “moderate” Democrat with whom they agree on very little. But by being Libertarian (with an upper-case L), they throw their vote away by voting for someone with no chance of winning, thus allowing the Democrat to be reelected.

The saddest part is that if there wasn’t a Libertarian Party candidate on the ballot, many of those voters would have voted for the Democrat because they disagree with the conservative Republican on a couple of issues.

Yup, losing by 768 votes sucks. And it is just above the margin needed to get a recount (0.2%, which would be 488 votes). http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/politics/55316623-90/absentee-ballots-county-election.html.csp

Hye money spent in Michigan was not wasted. Is it the fault of the people in the rural areas did not have enough votes to override the city of Detroit and various big demoncratic areas.

Dan Benishek won in the US (MI) 1st House of Representative. Mi has voter ID and voters must be registered by October 8, 2012

What the money spent in Florida was not able to offset the fraud? what about the fraud in Ohio ? Pennsylvania fraud too?

So Utah is a republican state. What happened that Romney did not get a whole whopping support of the Mormon vote.

How much money is to spent in Utah, Florida, Wisconsin and many other states for the GOP candidate.

Look Romney was a candidate that the establishment GOP wanted to win. Romney did not have the conservative vote as much as he thought he had.

I know of people whom voted in every category except for the president - they could not vote for a mormon.

It is unfortunate that Colonel Allen West lost. maybe Mia Love might win yet.

But as a conservative it is time to focus on how to deal with the problems at the local level so in 2016 the conservatives can win. Wisconsin and other states need to have voter ids in place same day voting registration needs to be stuffed in the garbage. What about Florida’s votioblems, maybe it is time the state of florida get its act together regarding voting.

Pie in the sky was the GOP had a RHINO running for president whom outspent and committed every fraudulent means to get reelected.

The GOP did not have a great candidate to begin with. It is unfortunate that there was collateral damage Michigan Hoekstra lost for the Senate to Democratic Stabenow. In Wisconsin Thompson (Rhino) lost to Tammy baldwin. Oddly enough Ryan won resoundly for his sea.

To continually say the GOP should have spent more money in guaranteed wins. In politics is there any guarantee?

If it is found that there is a vote already cast under her name, the provisional ballot gets tossed. We “think” that (hopefully) she received one in the mail and didn’t recognize it. She changed her name at the DMV and they updated her voter records. The (without her knowledge or permission) put her as a permanent by mail early voter, which she totally did not want or approve. She was told that they were trying to move as many people onto early voting rolls as possible.

I will be notifying our local talk show people, etc.
BTW... she is 1/2 black, 1/2 hispanic and total conservative. So is her sister. We are working on her father...

I hate those Dem congressional Murphys. They rise out of primordial ooze every two years to run against and defeat Republican incumbents in evenly divided districts. We got rid of two of them in 2010, but the CT Murphy held on, and this year the CT Murphy won a Senate seat while a new FL Murphy (with the same name as the PA Murphy defeated two years ago) beat West in FL-18. If I could get rid of either RAT Kennedys or RAT Murphys from Congress, I’d let those inbred, gargantuan-toothed drunkards stick around and send the Murphys packing.

And I agree, rematches for all three black conservative Republicans narrowly defeated this year. I still have Senate aspirations for West (I wanted him to jump into the Senate race against Bill Nelson even before the redistricting map came out), but there won’t be a seat available until, at the earliest, 2016 (and then only if Marco Rubio forgoes reelection to run for president).

Mia Love will be a Senator someday as well, hopefully in 2018 when Hatch retires; I hope that having served only two terms in the House instead of three terms won’t hurt her chances or cause her to defer to Jason Chaffetz.

in the alternate universe, I am a DEM running against GOP in marginal land. After I get elect, my voting record drifts rightward, til the lefties start screaming “primary!!!”

I get on the ballot with CT’s “Independent Party” in case I lose the primary. Do the GOPers dual-endorse me? If I lose the primary ... if it looks close, do I abandon that effort and run in the GOP primary?

Of course, this would be a DEM leaning seat, not a swing district, so the GOP would probably be happy to have me switch. I am so duplicitous, phony, and treacherous. Yes, I am Murphy!

I just realized that three weeks ago we were only 12,000 votes away from yet another freaking liberal Democrat Murphy beating a Republican in an evenly divided district: http://www.electmarkmurphy.com/

The NY-11 (Staten Island and Bensonhurst) appears to have been narrowly carried by Obama in 2012 despite voting narrowly (under the new lines) for McCain in 2008—I think it was one of only three CDs in the nation that swung from McCain to Obama (two of the three Hispanic CDs in South Florida were the other two). I’m sure that Hurricane Sandy was the main reason: turnout in Staten Island was atrociously low, and I guess more Republicans stayed home. Had Mark Murphy beaten Mike Grimm, it would have been almost as painful of a loss as Patrick Murphy beating Allen West in FL-18.

We need a 28th Amendment: No Democrat Murphys in Congress.
