Washington state voters still don't trust their election system, according to poll results just released by Strategic Vision.
From the poll:
Are you confident that Washington has overcome the problems that hindered the 2004 Election and that there will be no problems with the 2006 Election?
While there's no question this is a deplorable confidence rate, its interesting to compare this to the results of an identical poll taken a year ago, in August 2005. At that time, 73% said no, 17% said yes, and 10% were undecided. It appears that the only category gaining ground is undecided...

1. I trust polls slightly more than our election system.
I remind those who have forgotten, this is "A system any bank would be proud of".
Way to go Ron and the King County Council!
Keep it up! Great progress!
This really isn't any surprise to me. Everybody I have talked to on this; liberal, conservative, Demorat, Republican, Independent thinks the system is rigged or so faulty as to be useless. It's a running joke everywhere.
Now that's a reputation that any bank would be proud of.
4. I agree the King County Elections Office and the county officials who have ignored or worse ridiculed the voter's concerns over voting issues have totally lost the confidence of most voters in the county if not the state.
It is hard to explain to a new voter that their vote really does count and that it matters if they vote.
Even if we wanted to vote these people out of office we can't be sure they would count the votes right.
The votes in Ukraine, Iraq, elsewhere are more likely to be honest than King County. How is that for confidence?
Elections in King County need to be transparent, I don't trust the county leaders or elections officials to not have their every action watched and reported on.
5. My husband and I voted at the polls and we had a "choice" of the Diebold or the Accuvote. We told them we had NO choice but to use the Accuvote because of its reputation.
6. "No problems"????? No reputable pollster would ask such a loaded question.
KCE deserves the reputation they have from the public. They did a lot of things wrong and they know it. The whole state knows that they manufactured votes to get Dino in. (don't think so?? Can you say "200 illegal fatal pends counted because a group associated with vote fraud told them to count them, later admitting "We shouldn't have counted those" PLUS all the dead voters and double voters and felons and non-citizen votes plus voterless ballots they could never give any kind of good explanation for?? Plus homeless people listing permanent addresses in Europe? Not to mention the 90+ votes that never got counted, many of which came from Rossi-heavy precincts??)
They won't live this one down for years. They have only themselves to blame. Ron Sims puts together that citizen leaders group to explore the sitch and nothing really comes of it. They pay some dork outfit several hundred thousand dollars for essentially nothing. Oh yah, people are seeing right through it.

And don't forget the elephant in the living room that nobody seems to ever want to talk about, the, what was it, nine separate times KC election officials (incompetent thugs) "found" so-called "lost ballots", just enough to give Fraudoire the "win". Wow, what a convenient coinky-dink, is that just an amazingly close election, or what? But, according to the lousy, lying 'Rats, "that's all that it was". Yeah, I'll believe that, when you show me an election where the 'Rat doesn't have to count on "just happening to find" so-called "lost" ballots over a half-dozen times.
Thanks. "Misty" is one of my favorite songs.
When I need a laugh that is.

Jimmy: Stefan didn't write this post. Jonathan Bechtle did. Just thought you'd like to know.
and Jimmy, you probably won't be laughing in '08 when Christine leaves after one term. 'Til then...
In other news, Joe Farrah decides
that the Republicans are too liberal.
Some people are going to have to change their daily reading.
14. when Christine leaves
Oh! Stefan stop it. Now I'm really in stitches!
16. What's the point, moron (besides the one on top of your head)?
After wading through simple-minded crap from this blue-balls loser, I figured y'all could use a bit of levity. Since the moron sez change is in order, let's just pursue that for a moment:
Change is in Order?
18. Ha! Alphabet Soup, now THAT is GOOD! (ps--Do you think Jimmy B. will ever figure out that Stefan didn't write this post? Ok, let's just not tell him anymore and let him think what he wants...even if he looks a bit silly doing it)
I have very little faith that the counting doing by King County elections is anywhere close to accurate and now today I can confirm that I was disenfranchised in the last election. I am currently working overseas and as such requested an absentee ballot for the Sept. election. Today, Oct 4th, it arrived! I just requested my ballot for the November election today, let's see if they can do better.
Does Ron think that because he is the executive for King County that he is actually a king now and elections are not important?
20. Does Ron think that because he is the executive for King County that he is actually a king now and elections are not important?
Based on how they performed in 2004, my guess is that the KC elections scumwads think elections are not nearly as important as how the votes are counted (and how many times, especially those "lost" ballots that were "found" after the polls closed and the initial results showed their Fraud didn't win).
Recent trends support the idea that homeowners are realizing this and are refinancing to take advantage of today's lower rates while they are still available. "LowLender is the perfect option for people who want to cut out the legwork. equity loan bad credit
