      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 
Clermont’s Board of Elections Daniel Bare and the head of the Clermont 
Democratic Party Priscilla O’Donnell 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.
