Democracy Now reports on vote-switching in West Virginia

From "Democracy Now" with Amy Goodman.
WV Voting Machines Switch Votes from Obama to McCain

Early voting in the presidential election has already begun in many states, and problems are already emerging at the polls. In West Virginia, voters in at least two counties using touchscreen voting machines have claimed their votes were switched from Democrat to Republican. Six voters reported having this problem in Jackson and Putnam Counties. In both counties, Republicans are responsible for overseeing elections. One voter, a retired nurse named Shelba Ketchum, said, "I hit Obama, and it switched to McCain. I am really concerned about that. If McCain wins, there was something wrong with the machines.” Election officials blamed voters for not being more careful. Both counties use machines made by Election Systems & Software.

New song by Gary Polvinale about Ohio election fraud, "In Ohio"

Gary Polvinale, who was one of the heroes in getting the word out, and documenting, what happened in Ohio in 2004, has written a new song, "In Ohio", performed by "Madog Pavanelli & the Virtual Country Boys", available for free on his website. This word from Gary:

3 T I M E S I N O H I O

Ohio's Presidential Election was a fraud in 2000 and 2004. Care to go for three? They can. They control the elections. That'll be three times Ohio handed over the country. What about the current insane financial devastation? With that, George Bush can cross the last task off his "to screwup" list. Congress and the major candidates don't even want to get it. Wall street most surely gets it - and keeps on getting it. Meanwhile people are losing their homes, jobs and savings. We need to hold them all accountable and stop all this. In Ohio, the poster child for stolen elections... does Main Street really care??

Madog Pavanelli & the Virtual Country Boys light out after Main Street in our new song .... "In Ohio".

"In Ohio" is freely available for use by others in films, documentaries, live performances, radio and CD's. Interested parties email Gary Polvinale: garypcd@madogmusic.com
