    On another subject the AZ voting - that is entirely different from what is going on down in Broward though Reps are accusing Democrat areas of illegally accepting mail ballots to count that arrived Wednesday.

    Wading thorugh that stuff what it sounds like is that they knew the batches for yesterday and today would be favorable to Sinema but that the final 200+k votes will be really favorable to McSally due to Reps having a nice advantage on election day overall and late breaking Indies favoring McSally. They were surpised how much Sinema gained yesterday however and expect her to gain a little more today but think McSally still might overcome it in the last few days of counting.

    Again how many mail in ballots could be out there? If there not post marked by a certain day they don't count….And 2 or 3 people could count several thousand in half a day....

      On a related note, if we are interested in all the chaos that is resulting from the current election process, wait until it's digitized and completely online.

      Yeah. That'll work.

        It's easy to use hypocrisy to point out hypocrisy. Every time you talk about lib hypocrisy you're doing it from a place of hypocrisy. It's a vicious circle.

          Why can Miami/Dade deal with elections when nearby counties can't?

            Another thing is if there were more EARLY votes counted than ever before wouldn't that make counting on election day that much faster/simpler? Again I'm assuming that when you put your ballot into the machine it's counted then and there???

              I think the law there just says they have to be received by the times polls close except for maybe overseas military ballots.

              It sounds like most people vote with those type of ballots in AZ instead of machines so you get these crazy situations where a close election results in it being days before you know who the winner likely is.

              I would like to see Federal Elections standardized for at least casting (and counting) ballots.

                I like how FL does it now leaving a paper trail and with ballots you can't just manufacture voter intent during recounts. Since many states have went to this Dems don't seem to be gaining many votes on recounts like they used to.

                That crooked lady in Broward screwed over that guy running against the former DNC Chair and when she knew he was going to court about it destroyed the ballots in violation of records laws and somehow she is still in place.

                  I'll ignore your pettiness - figured that might be beneath you, but oh well.

                  No, I am not confident.

                  So, let's remove her, and use Supervisor of Elections officials that are known to be competent to resolve this efficiency, ensuring every legitimate vote counts.

                  Let me make it crystal clear - it is my unequivocal position that all legitimate votes are counted, regardless of what party they represent, and that each citizen that is eligible to vote and cast a ballot has their voice heard.

                  There should be NO situation where a legitimate vote is cast aside.

                    Amen....I'll gladly accept the outcome of any reasonable timely election as long as were all playing by the same rules.

                      What rule of man is superseding what rule of law?

                      A citizen and a registered voter has the right to ensure that their lawfully executed vote is counted. They don't yield that right when they turn in a ballot - they, and every other reasonable voter, expect that vote to be tallied.

                      Administrative incompetence does not supersede their right.

                      We agree, and I'd guess most here would also.

                      We all know that removing the SoE would create a massive uproar and bring more false accusations. The Dems already are, just for requested that the law be followed.

                      As with most discussions with people from opposite ends of the political spectrum, definitions matter.

                      Once a legal and competent definition of "legitimate" can be established, count away.

                      Pettiness? So you deny you voted for either Gillum or Nelson?

                        what say you to the liberals that are sure to cry partisanship if she was removed? Because you know they would.

                          Likewise, are you willing to insure NO illegitimate ballot get counted?

                          It’s interesting that in Minnesota, hundreds of “LOST” ballots were suddenly found that got Al Franken Elected.

                          Yet, thousands of troop’s ballots were rejected for not having a “Post Mark”. If anyone should be given the benefit of the doubt, it is the men and women serving overseas.

                            That her removal is necessary to ensure that all legitimate votes are counted. Any "liberal" that doesn't see that competent counting of votes as critical to our election process is ignorant at best and dangerous at worst.

                              Yes. The standard that determines that a ballot is legitimate should be consistently applied.
