Pocomoke Election Under Suspicion

From my friends at Real News Network 

Disappointment in Pocomoke. City council election is still undecided due to ballots unaccounted for approx. 5 were missing. 132 votes should have been counted and only 127 were found. District 1 still does not have their chosen representative.

Must be a close race if those five ballots are that important.

Same thing that happened in FL I think. Remember "hanging chads?" Some filled out the paperwork to vote, but when it came time to actually cast the vote, either didn't do it or didn't do it properly so it didn't register. I heard of these discrepancies from time to time in other places and I don't recall election officials ever being able to come to a solid firm conclusion on what the problem was other than voter error.

It doesn't make sense to use voting machines when less than 200 votes are cast. If they had used plain old paper ballots there would have been a paper trail and the totals would not be in question. Sometimes the old ways are better than fancy modern things.

Was this an election for a single seat? If not, just because you voted doesn't necessarily mean that you in that one election for office, if there was more than one contested seat.

I gotta a feeling those 5 votes are everything and neither one of them won by enough that they don't matter. I find myself not believing in any of it because of the one voter being turned away and Bill Hudson who is a good ole boy friend of Tasker being the deciding factor....I don't believe in anything where a Pocomoke Official is involved they are not honest people and its all about what can the people of the city do for them not what they can do for the people of the city!! Glad I moved and can't vote because this was my district.
