Ohio recount volunteers allege electoral tampering, legal
violations and possible fraud
*Why were there stickers on ballots in Clermont County, Ohio?*
By Larisa Alexandrovna | RAW STORY <http://rawstory.com> Staff
Serious new election tampering allegations have emerged from an Ohio
county, where witnesses allege that stickers were placed on presidential
election ballots, RAW STORY <http://rawstory.com> has learned.
Several volunteer workers in the Ohio recount in Clermont County, Ohio
have prepared affidavits alleging serious tampering, violations of state
and federal law and possible fraud. They name the Republican chief of
Clermonts Board of Elections Daniel Bare and the head of the Clermont
Democratic Party Priscilla ODonnell as complicit in these acts.
These volunteers, observing the recount on behalf of the Greens,
Libertarians and Democrats, assert that during the Dec. 14, 2004 hand
recount they noticed stickers covering the Kerry/Edwards oval, whereas
the Bush/Cheney oval seemed to be colored in.
Some witnesses state that beneath the stickers, the Kerry/Edwards oval
was selected. The opti-scan ballots were then fed into the machines
after the hand recount.

Something to think about in the context of optically scanned ballots.
