After the fall of the Soviet Union and the introduction of genuine electoral politics to Russia,
the city of Moscow, in order to save money, purchased used voting machines from the city of Chicago. When they held their first election for Mayor, Richard J. Daley won by a landslide. (That’s a joke. Then again, maybe not.)
Is this the first national election to be stolen? Or, are the following just “rumors”?
Perhaps the missing “White Voters” voted but weren’t counted, and the U.N. election observers showed up just to ensure the “correct” result.

Philadelphia, ACORN affiliate CVP – The Community Voters Project is a “non-partisan” lefty organization whose mission is to register people to vote, with a particular emphasis on minorities… This year, however, it seems they aren’t registering everyone who wants to vote.

Only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. The unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10%). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.

“Race remains undecided. Before moving forward, the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections must make public the poll book counts from Election Day and early voting. Given the dramatic late night swing in votes in St. Lucie County, we want to ensure that early votes were not double counted. The only way to know that is to compare the poll books to the actual number of votes cast. We are hopeful the Supervisor of Elections will cooperate and make that data available for inspection,” Edson said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

Update: From Twitchy: Myth of ‘141% turnout’ in St. Lucie County, Fla., persists…
Voter turnout in St. Lucie County, Fla., was not 141 percent. The confusion arose because uninformed people mistakenly conflated the number of “cards cast” (the number of ballot pages submitted by voters) with the number of voters. Since most voters submitted two ballot pages, voter turnout in in St. Lucie County was roughly half the number of cards cast. Thus, turnout was roughly 70-71 percent, not 141 percent.
