    How was it partisan I didn't mention a single political party or persuasion?

    Seriously I don't understand the OP's logic here, his source is full of people sayings its probably due to errors in the census and while "over-registration" for lack of a better term may be suggestive of voter fraud, its not proof in and of itself just as lack of "over-registration" is not proof in and of itself that there's no fraud either.

    In other words it suggests something may be wrong but its far from conclusive.

    How does that not make sense?

    Also all these counties have a significantly large black population, so its not really surprising they went for Obama. In fact Hale and Greene county are in the same Congressional district in Alabama and its the only congressional district to have either a female, black, or democrat representative.

    Greene County, Alabama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Hale County, Alabama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Lowndes County, Alabama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Macon County, Alabama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Alabama's congressional districts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And all these counties lie in the historic "black belt" which describes a string of counties across the South which were home to the majority of plantations and thus slaves during the 1860s and these same areas still have a fairly large black population typically greatly outnumbering whites.

    This is a demographic trend that's existed for over a hundred years, I fail to see how "voter fraud" is the answer here.

    Two of these explanations are opinion, one is hearsay. No facts were presented in these explanations; no proof.







    The only fact is this, he then gave an example:



    So why would an adult register more than once to vote?

    To dumb to know you can only register once?

    An illegal act by those who register voters?

    Incompetence?

    All of the above?

    You pick...

    I've driven through some of these counties and they are in the middle of nowhere. Two lane highways driving through small rural towns through back roads Alabama. I would love to own property in some of these counties; about half way between the gulf coast and Tuscaloosa. Actually Hale Co. and Greene Co. are close to Tuscaloosa. Its God country.

    You have over 100@ of eligible adults in the county voting. Even if you factor in the alleged anomaly of people refusing to participate in the census...the fact remains that in those 4 counties (counties which OBTW just HAPPEN to have gone for Obama by RIDICULOUSLY large margins in a state where Romney carried the OVERALL number by 22%) those numbers stink. There is an absolute gross misrepresentation of the state as a whole. If you cant see that it is only because you REFUSE to see it.

    Did you see my post where I posted the demographics of these counties? You'd expect a county with between 70-85% black population to heavily favor Obama, that was a national trend in the last two Presidental elections.

    Ya its nice if you don't mind the humidity, but still did any of that info make you reconsider the notion that the results of the election in those counties was due to voter fraud?

    That's false. The article does a good job of obscuring this, but there are far fewer voting than are registered in those counties, and the number voting is less than the population.

    I'll list the county, number active registered, number voting, population per census, people actually voting/population in %. The last one is key:

    Lowndes, 9585, 7519, 8540 (88%)
    Greene, 7,224, 5,328, 6859 (78%)
    Macon, 17,071, 10,385, 16,934 (61.3%)
    Wilcox, 8,573, 6,547, 8,567 (76.4%)

    So, in each county, fewer voted than are listed as the adult population.

    Besides, voter fraud leaves a trail. There is a list of everyone who voted. If Alabama thinks there are a large number of the blahs voting twice, they should assign someone to investigate, and find at least ONE case of actual voter fraud. These stories pop up every cycle, and despite the huge advantages to the "photo ID" proponents, we never move from "hey, this is odd..." to cases of demonstrated voter fraud. And the reason is that in person voter fraud is trivial, but bad paperwork and lists that aren't properly updated as common as dirt.

    It my county the Director of the Board of Elections will not purge dead voters from the record unless she is presented with a copy of the death certificate.

    When a family members dies there is a lot of issues to deal with. I would imagine that having your deceased love one from the voting records isn't even on the list of priorities of things to take care of.
