Forest Park is a city of about 19,000 residents in the northern suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio, in Hamilton County. In 2008, Hamilton County voted for Barack Obama while most of the surrounding counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana voted Republican.
With so many eyes on Ohio in yesterday’s election, it was no surprise to see this news story on the local news.
A couple from Forest Park showed up yesterday at the polls to vote just like they have ever since they turned 18. When it was their turn, they were both told that they had already voted via absentee ballot. The couple said that they have never voted absentee and wanted to know how this could happen.
Precinct officials told them that they could fill out a provisional ballot, which they did.
Before long, a number of other voters in the same precinct were told the same thing, that they had already voted via absentee ballots and that they also needed to fill out a provisional ballot. Eventually, voting officials said that the mistake was due to ‘human error’ and that anyone else in the same situation would likewise have to cast a provisional ballot. In Ohio, provisional ballots are not counted until 10 days after the election.
I have to wonder what the human error was and how so many absentee ballots have been cast and who they voted for? With so many reports of possible voter fraud, especially in Ohio and early voting, I suspect that Democrats had gone through a voter registration roll and requested a number of absentee ballots, filled them in and submitted them for counting. I’ve been saying all along that Obama would win this election one way or another. If not legally, then illegally.
