Ben Arnold: More on those missing voting machine seals
Comments re article 74909 Sheila Blair responds to Ben Arnold
By Ben Arnold
Sheila, let's be clear so the readers are not misled.
The Absentee votes consist of both paper ballots that are mailed in and the e-votes in the Clerk's office where you and Joyce Rodgers oversaw the election process.
I agree with your comments on paper mail-in votes, but what about the other absentee votes? The absentee voting machine was not just used on election day but for all absentee voters over weeks, right?
The KY Law states the machines are to be locked and sealed at the close of voting and to remain so for the required time.
Further, in this case the machines and ballots were under Court order to be secured. The Absentee machine, of all machines - there under your watch all the time and not transported - should have been secured.
Did you know that the Hurt machine also did not have a seal in place? Do you believe that 2 machines may have had their seals knocked off in transport?
Do you know that the Absentee seal seen inside its machine on the first ballot inspection by the Committee on Feb 13 was removed and not present on the next ballot inspection about a week later? --Ben Arnold
