Skip to comments.Bombshell: More Signs of Fraud in Precinct 1823 [Seattle corruption]
Posted on 01/01/2005 4:44:14 PM PST by sionnsar
Seattle's Precinct 1823 counted 343 ballots, which is 71 more ballots than the 272 voters who cast them. This is the single largest discrepancy between ballots and voters in all of King County. Nearly all of the discrepancy is due to "provisional ballots".
I earlier reported on the notorious Precinct 1823, where hundreds of voters are registered with a residence address of 500 4th Ave, the King County Administration Building, Some of these are homeless individuals, who are entitled by statute to register at government buildings. But other "residents" of the county office building are listed on the property tax rolls as owning homes elsewhere in King County, and therefore illegally registered. Dozens of other "residents" of 500 4th Ave voted absentee from overseas mailing addresses. Hundreds of other Precinct 1823 voters give as "permanent addresses" temporary homeless shelters. This is all questionable enough and an obvious potential source of vote fraud. But it gets worse.
As noted earlier (here and here), King County now reports a discrepancy of 3,539 more ballots counted than voters who voted. The manual recount precinct canvass combined with Wednesday's voter list reveals that there are 684 precincts with more voters than ballots and 725 other precincts with more ballots than voters, for something approaching 1,512 ballotless voters and 4,593 voterless ballots. [I'll go into more detail on this in a future post]. Precinct 1823 has the dubious distinction of being the precinct with the largest number of voterless ballots.
These are the numbers of the various kinds of ballots that were counted in Precinct 1823, according to the precinct canvasses of the three counts. The final line shows the number of voters who cast each type of ballots.
In the manual recount, they commingled the various types of ballots so there's no way of knowing how exactly the 343 "final" ballots break down into Absentee, Polling Place and Provisional. What is clear is that there were about 66 more provisional ballots accepted from Precinct 1823 than there were voters identified as voting them. Countywide there are a net of over 500 more provisional ballots than provisional voters.
There may well be an explanation why the numbers of voters and ballots are still so far apart two months after the election -- especially in a precinct full of transients, unknowable overseas voters and illegal registrants. But the explanation will have to be a very good one. The canvassing board certified the vote count three times, with the countywide ballot total increasing every time without explanation. At none of these certifications did the canvassing board seem to care whether or not the number of voters reconciled with the number of ballots. This would seem to be willful ignorance, perhaps criminal negligence. If that is what happened, a number of "public servants" need to be fired, recalled and/or prosecuted.
King County Elections claims it will provide a final voter list by the end of next week. But at this point, none of us should trust them unless a team of observers is watching every step of the process.

It would be very interesting to see how many of these "extra" votes went sKerry's way. Since this was Seattle, which was heavily weighted toward the left, it would not surprise me if the majority of them were by democrats
Sounds like a whole lotta vote fraud goin' on down there......
Naa ... the mantra is "Every Vote Must Count!"
Yeah, RIGHT. Several times! And illegal ones too! </sarcasem
BTTT Just finfished going to Sound Politics and reading the latest. I have to say that Stefan Sharkansky
is doing an amazing job!
Dems. cheating...same old same old. It will never end! eh
Didn't the the Federal Supreme Court throw out "provisional ballots" from the 2004 election.
Okay, I don't have a home in King County, or anywhere in the state. Technically, that makes me "homeless", at least as far as King County and the state are concerned (I don't have a home, there). So can I register to vote and list my addy as being at the King County board of elections building, or some other government building? If so, can I vote in an election there?
If so, sounds like all the more reason for Rossi to seek a re-vote. I'm sure we can drum up a couple of hundred FReepers to do this and whittle Gregoire's "lead" down to nothing.
If you're a democrat, sure.
Just think, Ginifer, how many more votes Rossi and Bush would have tallied if the disqualified votes were truly disqualified, and if the military ballots were included in the count to begin with. It simply blows one's mind!
Not at all Gin..
The RATs tried to steal the 2000 election in Fla and failed..
The RATs tried to steal the 2004 election in Wa and succeeded..
The only thing different is the result but the MO is the same...and very predictable.
Rossi has nothing to gain by playing the good guy. WA is hopelessly Democrat and Rossi has almost no chance of winning statewide office again. Certainly not against Cantwell, and Gregoire and bin Murray are too far off.
Rossi would have to be considered a long shot at best against Cant-Do-Well. She has had four years, and has another two, to bring home the bacon and dump largess on the sheeple to fix up her run for re-election. Likewise Gregoire in four years and Murray in six will be out of reach.
Dino Rossi knows that if he loses this race to the 'Rats by lying down for their cheating, they'll bury him deeper than Jimmy Hoffa the next time around.
