Every effort should be made to prevent voter fraud that occurred in New Hampshire’s presidential primary. “Paul and Obama cheated out of third and first place by voting machines and hand count fraud,” (Jan. 9 article by Paul Joseph Watson).
Lou Dobbs at CNN wrote: “Across the nation, eight out of every 10 voters will be casting their ballots this November on electronic voting machines. And these machines time and again have been demonstrated to be extremely vulnerable to tampering and error, and many of them have no voter-verified paper trail.”
My recent Internet search using “vote fraud 2008” yielded a computer estimated 181,000 entries — wow!
Last year I voted in Precinct 410 using an electronic voting machine. When I pressed the button, my vote vanished into the ether — no paper trail, no recoverable record that I know of. This is not good.
When I vote I want to be confident my vote was properly counted. I trust Mr. Parten will earn his $50 per hour by devising a system that prevents voter fraud in Parker County.
Vote Marjorie King
On March 4, the voters of Parker County will elect the officials that will be running the county for the next four years. One office in particular is the tax assessor-collector.
The current elected official, Larry Lippincott, has a law suit filed against the county. It could eventually cost Parker County over a million dollars. His opponent, Marjorie King, had always maintained a great office, with qualified and courteous employees, and she never brought Parker County into a lawsuit.
I encourage all citizens of Parker County to get out and vote on March 4. Vote Marjorie King.
Get priorities right
Mr. Riff Wright’s letter in the Jan. 27 edition begs for a brief rebuttal. If this gentleman neither owns property nor owns or operates a business on the square, then his cheap shot at Mrs. Cotten-Scott was uncalled for.
