                                        4/10/2005 by Mike Swinford

This is a summary of some of the perceptions and deceptions I formed an opinion on during the 2004
electiom.

The federal HAVA Act of 2002 was Chaired/promoted by Ohio Rep Dist 18 Bob Ney to fix the 2000
election problems. But, the wording about verification of voting opened the door for more election fraud.
This is the root cause of controversy

Perception is, counting of votes, as stated in Title III Sec 301 can be trusted with auditing.
Deception is, secret counting is allowed by software written by someone politically biased.
The politician has created a new corrupted, political definition of "auditing" for counting votes. In the
practice of auditing, the standard, required word "independent" has NOT been included in the vote
counting (tabulation) process. The purpose of that required word in "auditing" is to put "integrity" in issued
reports. But, HAVA excluded it. The vote counting process can be by secret software written by vendors
that are politically biased. And the paper audit trail in this corrupted system is only a paper report after
votes have been entered and votes possibly changed by the secret software. As a result, trust is now
gone.
Plus, there are NO actual votes in a DRE (computer) system for a recount. In the real world, an audit
must be an objective count of actual items. Thus, no objective recount of votes is possible with the HAVA
defined voting system. This violates Ohio election law on Recounts and Other Remedies "§ 3515.04
Procedure for recount..."..."the ballots to be recounted".

One solution to the above is to have a paper receipt of each vote, a receipt verified by voter, and retained
at the poll for possible recounts. And this would be a way to check for election fraud.
But, Bob Ney claimed the technology for receipt printers does not exist. But, I have actual printed vote
receipts form two different voting machines. They do exist.

Thus, with the removed concept of "independent" vote counting, no way to recount votes and false printer
info, I see intent to rig elections.

Perception, there is some oversight goverment entity to check on fraud and enforce laws.
Deception is, none for Ohio 2004 election. Have one after election, but make it powerless.
At Fed level, an oversight commission, "EAC", was to be established within 120 days of HAVA in 2002.
That sounded great. But Bush prevented it for the 2004 election. Bush blocked appointment of
commissioners until January 2004, and withheld about 90 % of the funding.
Thus, the new U.S. federal agency to scrutinize how to safeguard electronic polling from fraud, hackers
and faulty software was made ineffective. By law, if it does get established, it can only make suggested
guidelines to states, has no power to enforce any laws.
I have asked, Where do I report voting violations? Answer, No government entity to call.

Perception, current "certification" of voting machines, implies an independent source like a CPA
Accountant will prepare a report that you can trust. Machines are safe from fraud.
Deception is, the certification of a voting system, unlike other fields, has no certification standards. The
government EAC failed to issue guidlines to states. No national or state associations have emerged for
certification standards. And it is being discovered that many of the certification firms are own or controlled
by the politicians or by the vendors they are to certify.

Perception is, fraud prevention means stopping the trickery that would change votes.
Deception has been to use the Secretary of State office (the office in charge of elections) for political
gain.
In Ohio, Secretary of State Blackwell defination of fraud is preventing "liberals" from voting. SOS State
Blackwell stated that he has two job objectives. The second job objective is to prevent "fraud". And now
we have the reports of vote counts switched from Kerry to Bush, voter intimidation and voter suspression.
In a campaign letter after election, SOS Blackwell stated he was also Co Chairman for BushCheney04
and claims he changed election to Bush. But, under Ohio statutes the conditions that constitute "prima
facia evidence of fraud" requires being independent of intent, political or otherwise. Blackwell's response
to complaints has been, as SOS, he can "codify" the law (makes laws) any way he wants. And no conflict
of interest laws exist. Blackwell's definition of "fraud" has been consistent with his pattern of liberally
interpreting or contradicting the laws of his office.
In Knox County OH, when it was discovered only Kerry yard signs were being stolen, Republican Sheriff
Barber said, that is a campaign expense.


Perception is, the two party election system of checks and balances will stop election fraud.
Deception is, election workers follow laws and processes for the paper ballot system, a system not in
use. Political/legal experts confirmed, existing laws are based on paper processing, not for DRE
(computers). Most election and poll workers do not know how to test for fraud and are not allowed to see
the secret vote counting logic. Election workers must register as Democratic or Republican. But, both
added together are only 31 % of all registered voters. 69 % of non-affliated party voters are not
represented in this system of checks and balances. Other democratic countries have a non-political group
to run their elections and count votes. Not a political minority as in US.

Perception is, democracy is at work, change is possible because there are several parties.
Deception is, Ohio is now a one party system with one party in control at state and Federal levels. The
one party will not allow the one party process to be changed and lose power. The Dem party has more
registered voters with, 17 % Dem, to the 14 % Repubs. But Dems can NOT win an election, lost last
three.

Perception was, the national campaigns by the Dems and Repubs were for voters to select a candidate.
Deception by consultants. Was told (not confirmed) that Repub contracts are on flat rate, must win for
bonus/profit. Dem contracts are on a percentage that can make a profit on a lost election. Repubs milked
the rich for money (percent of tax breaks returned as a contrabution). Dems milked all others with the
false hope of, make one more small contribution and you might win one. A Dem win would upset this
profitable strategy that has been developed on both sides.

Perception was, the Presidential Nov 2004 election by the two main parties was fair.
Deception was to hide the election fraud. On Election Day, Bush camp ordered a TV media lockdown on
irregularities and censored the Edison/Mitofsky exit poll that showed Kerry won. Kerry conceded before
all the votes were counted, froze the election investigation fraud fund/resources and went into hidding. In
Ohio, State Dem Chairman D. White has indicated, after election he does not want election fraud
complaints investigated.
So, both sides do not want the public to know whom the voters elected for President.

Perception is all the voters in Knox County OH are Republican. But voters say, sometimes I vote for
other side.
Deception is massive. Prior to election, one analysis said Bush ahead by about 800 votes, my
calculations showed 500 with a trend towards Kerry. The election total of 7,000 votes (63 %) for Bush is
a FRAUD. It does not reconcile with sample counts of bumper stickers, phone bank or door-to-door
observations, and voter registration. Knox has a type DRE voting system that is subject to voting fraud
and is illegal as per Ohio law. Now add local paper nicknamed "Republican New" creating Repub ads as
new stories and dropping Dem items due to technical difficulties. That violated public trust. And the local
radio station 73Q using a call-in show by the Host Dave, promoted the Bush campaign. This violated FCC
regulations. ("broadcaster cannot give Republican candidates free air time unless the same offer is
extended to other candidates"). Plus "Ohio Revised Code Campaign Finance Laws" may have been
violated. At Nazarene University, area profiled as Repub, registered over 186 voters with an invalid
address.
Conclusion is NO trust in election system.Can not trust what they say and can not trust what they do.

Knox County Ohio -- Voter Violations
4/11/2005 by Mike Swinford, Knox County

This post reviews Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Mount Vernon Ohio, Knox County, Precinct 1-C,
registration and voting. This is the response to a Greene County Red flag.

Registration Address Laws Defined:
Fed law, Help America Vote Act of 2002 Sec. 303. Computerized Statewide voter registration list
requirements for voters who register by mail (2) Requirements.--The . "address of the voter" is required.
Ohio State computer record format descriptions on address include this.
Past record description of fields used "residence" and 2005 field names use "Residential" to describe type
of info required.
On 1/10/2005 Ohio Secretary of State,HAVA Division confirmed "The address must be your residential
address"..NOT a business.

Ohio Registration Forms Omit Address Instruction:
Official state and Knox County Board of Elections OMITTED on the "Voter Registration From", the
residential requirement.
After checking other states, discovered they included that requirement on their forms.
This omitted address requirement on forms has opened the door for invalid registrations.
But, Ohio Secretary of State Blackwell was MORE concerned about forms being on #80 paper after news
media reported a high percent of new voters were Democratic. On Sept. 2004, restricted forms to specific
type of paper, Democratic voters could be disqualified in favor of Bush. Blackwell, a Republican was also
Co-Chairman of the Ohio BushCheney04 campaign.

Nazarene University Voter Registrations:
As of 3/3/2005 Knox BOE records show 186 registered voters using the "Mount Vernon Nazarene"
business address of "800 Martinsburg". I called the Naz phone number and was told by operator, NO one
lives at that address.
In Nov 2004, 46 of the 186, voted had no second/mailing address. 6 others that voted had a secondary
address, info for locating them. Using the business address instead of a residence address violates Fed
and state law stated above. Checking BOE registration dates, Knox BOE has been accepting the Naz
business address prior to the 2000 election. Told that the instructions were issued by "MVNU's College
Republican club" by mail. Also, unknown address raises additional question, what is their actual precinct
for voting?

Nazarene - Kenyon Comparison shows bias:
5 miles form Naz in Knox County is a second college, about the same size. Kenyon 1,300 students
Nazarene 974. students. But zero people used the Kenyon 103 College business address. Thus, voter
registrations are not consistant.
Other differences are as follows.
Nazarene is profiled as Republican, Kenyon located in Precinct, "Gambier", profiled as Democratic.
On 9/23/04, at Kenyon College’s Peirce Hall lounge, Gambier, OH, Judy Hoffman, a woman lawyer form
SOS Blackwell told students in a very rude way intimidated about students their right to vote. Her
statements made students very angry.
But, no student intimidation reported at Naz, profiled as Repub.
The historical long 10 hour voting line occurred at Kenyon (Democratic). But, no problem reported at Naz
(Republican).

Provisional Ballots and no precinct maps:
First, if you go two blocks west of the Naz address (800 Martinsburg stated above), you are in a different
precinct. Not knowing actual location of the Naz voters makes the topic of assigned precinct and
Provisional Ballots tainted.
Second, Knox BOE did not issue precinct maps to any of the 56 precincts as required by Ohio law,
Section 5.1, 3501.30, (1). The county "Tax Map Dept" confirmed, precinct maps had been discontinued.
This made finding correct precincts more difficult for voters at polls and biased voting in favor of Bush.
For assigning precincts to new voters, the Knox BOE has one large city map and a county map marked
with precincts in their office break room (not directly accessed by public).

Greene County raised RED flag:
This was disclosed by Katrina Sumner. Voters with Nazarene address (800 Martinsburg stated above)
were in Greene County to vote. So, why were Naz people in wrong county?
Greene County is located half way across the state on east side of Dayton.
And additional problems were reported there on Nov 3 from Central State.
"They registered, were sent back registrations, told to register again, some got registered, some never
received registration cards, but were told they were registered yet they weren't. Ballots were rejected,
total ballots cast doesn't match roll books with signatures. Students were also intimidated in precinct
354/355, also lacking machines, some students and observers that volunteered from the Dem party were
threatened."
Later, investigation by observers were blocked. SOS Blackwell (Co-Chairman BushCheney04 campaign)
ordered a "locked down" directly in a phone call to Greene County Election Administrator Pat Wolfe on
December 10 . And declared records are “not considered public records.” The lock down of public
records was a violation of Ohio Revised Code Title XXXV Elections, Sec. 3503.26, the public's right to
inspect and copy. Now add Provisional Ballot confusion. Thus, a pattern of Dem student voting
suppression, but not Repubs.
