Election system a flop

Having been involved in many elections in Nevada County over the years I have to say this June 5, 2018 election was the worst.  A total flop as far as I can see.  When Bruce Bolinger was the Elections official we had similar issues but at least we got the thing wrapped by Thursday after election day.  Sometimes counting the AV's took a while longer but this fiasco is over the top.  And the good people of Nevada County returned the protagonist to the fiasco to his post.  Go figure.

It would seem to me the "experiment" taught us all something.  Maybe the old ways were not so bad.  The Election offices of the five counties in this experiment appear to have the same problems.  Thousands of ballots still need to be counted!  And when these counties agreed to this strategy they had the wherewithal to ask for a bunch of "extra" money to implement it.  Well, what a waste of money.  I say if you have all this advance notice to a "date certain" why the hell did you not have an additional 100 people ready to count?  We all knew June 5, 2018, was the day!  Yet here we are waiting for 13,500 or more ballots to be counted.

I think Mr. Diaz should take the blame.  He got his extra money for this but maybe it was spent on things other than counting.  Maybe the money could have been spent on polling places and temp employees on election day.  Seemed to have worked for a couple of hundred years.  And did anyone talk to Oregon officials to get their system?  Seems they have mail only elections and they appear to work.  Or maybe they just hide things better.

Elections are the reason we should do and spend whatever it takes to get the job done in a timely and orderly fashion.  No more chincing.  Spare a welfare check or two and spend the money on the Franchise!  So please get the results done ASAP as there are many people waiting nervously for the results.  To me, the totals should have been available election night.  I recall Bolinger was a slowpoke in 1988 when I won by 49 votes but it was 5AM the next morning before it was done.  That was great compared to the mess today.

I say we need to return to the paper ballot, election polling places and maybe even a purple finger.  Hell, we could not even see who voted from the precinct lists that were always posted on the walls of the polling places!  That was a handy help on a "GOTV" strategy utilized by most candidates.  It was just not the same and not as fun doing this "mail" voting.  AV's should be only for those unable to physically get t the polls.  Whether from infirmities or travel conflicts.  I want my "I Voted" sticker just like the old days.  Of course, the old days were just two years ago.

  1. Another election fail from Diaz. Diaz pushed to spent an additional $258,000 of taxpayers money to be one of five Voter's Choice Act counties for the primary election. As expected it was a total screw up and waste of money and the vote results are still far away and Diaz, Yubanet and the FUE are blaming and insulting the voters that waited until election day to vote. You can't make this BS up! Once again Diaz has screwed up and wasted taxpayers money.

    1. Voters waited till "Election Day to Vote" Wow election day was the day and the only day to vote since the first time I voted in California June 1964.
      I assume the Nevada County has a budget for normal elections but needed an additional $258,000 for this "Failed Noble Experiment"?
      This election was a "Soup Sandwich".

  2. I HATE this "new" system and hope they go back to what it was. In the last election - If you were actually paying attention and interested - you made time to go vote. We took our children with us so they would see the importance of voting. It is not the same and I know this system is just ripe for FRAUD. What a BIG waste and Why, oh why, did they vote this dip $hit back in?

We can deal with it but the result of his failures in this election is his superiors to review so this fuster cluck does happen again in November 2018. The point is that he sold his superiors a bill of goods for $258,000 and that is tax payers dollars.

    4. It appears that Linda Campbell was arrested at the Nevada county courthouse on June 6 and charged as follows: “(1) Disorderly, contemptuous, or insolent behavior committed during the sitting of a court of justice, in the immediate view and presence of the court, and directly tending to interrupt its proceedings or to impair the respect due to its authority.”

      Also appears to have been charged with obstructing or resisting an officer.

    5. Looking at the Court records, she has bee apparently going through a divorce proceeding for three years. She had had two lawyers now she appears to be representing herself. Based upon the records, looks like she had a meltdown in court and got arrested. I’ll get the skinny on Monday. Lol

    I wanted to spend the night at the new Kimpton Sawyer Hotel when we visited Mitchell in Sacramento. But I didn't want to spend much, so I went to Priceline for a "blind" hotel purchase. From the description, it sounded like the Kimpton "to a tee," so I snagged it for $150 at the deep discount rate. But I wound up with Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel. Arg. I will flash our Starwood "gold" card and hope for a room upgrade. And we'll go out for a nice dinner. Next time, Kimpton.

  12. Next thing you know Diaz and the PHEW FUE will blame the voters for not mailing in their ballots 10 days early. It’s all the voters fault for waiting for Election Day to vote. Blame the Postal Service, blame people dropping off ballots on Election Day. What a hoot. Imagine the fine citizens of Nevada County voting on Election Day. What a concept. It’s all Diaz’s constituents who are to blame, the unwashed heathens. I do not know about the rest of you, but my ballot was not printed with instructions to vote at least a week before voting day or else Diaz and Company would look like squirrels passing pine cones. Neither did my ballot come with bold print instructions to vote early and vote often.
    Come the first Tuesday in November, I will again be an obtuse stubborn voter and vote on Election Day. It is not due to being too busy, procrastination, stubbornness, or laziness. It is because of the October surprises and then it’s too late to change your mind. Election Day means Election Day, not election week or Election month.
    Anybody want to bet me that not all the ballots will be counted and recorded during the next two weeks. Hopefully the ballots will be counted by July 4th.
    No, FUE, it is not the voters’ fault your loverboy Diaz just got hit by a Mack Truck with his deer in the headlights look.. The buck stop where it started, which is squarely on his shoulders.

    3. Ralph, The first time I voted in California was the 1964 June primary as I turned 21 April 1964. Election day was the 1st Tuesday June 2nd, not June 1st or June 3rd.
      If I assembled a team of experts to screw up the primary election I would not be able to do as well as Diaz did by accident.
      Will the November election cost another $258,000 and be as screwed up as the June 5th circle jerkel? November 6th is election day and will vote on election day as I have since 1964.

  14. It's a FACT that that Diaz squandered an additional $258,000 of taxpayers money to be one of six counties to use the screwed up all mail ballot system. It's a FACT that Diaz's costly bad idea was a total failure. It's a FACT this was Diaz's big idea and his alone to use this in Nevada County. It's a FACT that it was not required by the State. It's a FACT that there were a number of costly and avoidable ballot information mailer screw-ups this election requiring spending more taxpayers money to send out corrected mailers to voters. It's a FACT that Diaz has refused to disclose the costs for these corrected mailers. It's a FACT that every election Diaz has been in charge of has had costly screw-ups and delays that were preventable. The Board of Supervisors need to do a full public review of the FACTS and hold Diaz accountable.

    4. Still taking bets that the votes will not be counted within two weeks. This is easy money. The additional quarter millions bucks that Diaz was given apparently has not been enough. He wanted $80,000 more to screw the pooch. Perhaps the Feds should simply go up to his office and arrest the entire staff and get homeless off the street to count the ballots. It certainly could not be worse that the cornholing Diaz is giving the voters.
      Diaz and that corrupt Secretary of State of CA joined together in advance to say the new Voter Act is to make it more convienant for people to vote. They did not say “citizens” because promoters of anything to do with government in CA never use the word citizens. It might be offensive to illegals and other non-citizen voters. If convienance was the goal, they have succeed. If hiding the ballots from oversight and verification for weeks on end was the goal, they have surpassed their wildest expectations. No one to watch the counting. How long does it take to count 16,000 ballots? Good thing we did not have a 70% turnout. That would push the final tally well into July. Incompetence on display. Diaz should be arrested not for voter fraud, but for railroading this fraud upon the citizens of the United States who reside in Nevada County, Ca. Just imagine if this was a bigger county. How much more money he could have weasled out of the hard working tax payers. Another film flam carpetbagger from the Bay Area selling snake oil to the locals.

    3. The Fat Wino complains that he as endured fat jokes. What planet does he live on. Those are not jokes. They are not jokes by any stretch of the imagination. They are statements of revulsion at the sight of him. Revulsion is an understatement, no joking involved.

  31. So, I take it that this same scoundrel who swindled the taxpayers out of hundred of thousands of dollars is the same idiot who will oversee the his upcoming recall election? Who is going to verify the signatures in time to get the Diaz recall on the ballot by November? At this pace and incompetence, it will be impossible to have the recall petition ready before November. What a farce. The fox guarding the henhouse.

  32. San Francisco does not have an elected elections official. Ask Diaz. Before moving here to Nevada County, he never ever ran an election. Never. No experience period. If San Francisco does not need an elected elections official, we don’t either. The BOS should take the elections over and hire someone with real experience or in the alternative someone who is willing to come to work and do a good job.

  40. President Obama was one of a select handful of individuals who had "direct contact" with Hillary Clinton on her private email account, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz indicated in his bombshell report Thursday on the Clinton email probe.

    In a footnote, the DOJ watchdog notes that "FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account."
    The IG report adds that Obama used a pseudonym for his username.

    2. Muelller phoneyed up witness tampering against Manafort which he plead not guilty to but the judge revoked his bail and threw him in jail.
      Mueller wanted him in jail so he could squeeze him to get something on Trump.
      The two witnesses are two Ukraine citizens Manafort had business dealings with years before the 2016 election.
      Yes the FBI and DOJ needs to be purged of the criminals and Mueller needs to be fired along with Rosenstein.

  41. Manafort is accused of witness tampering with not proof or evidence given. Not one liberal civil rights lawyer would ever condone this judge’s action. Merely accusing someone is not reason to strip their bond, no matter which side of the fence you stand. This would never pass legal muster in any courtroom in any other courtroom in the nation. Only because Meuller went judge shopping and simply walks into the courtroom and says this guy is witness tampering, revoke his bail and arrest him now without evidence should get every defense attorney and civil liberties advocate up in arms.
    Be careful liberals and Trump haters what you are cheering for. You are cheering for Nazi Germany, Communinist China, and Soviet tactics being used by a corrupt government in a court of law in the USA. This is not something to be partisan about. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Will you be cheering when it happens to someone you support? BTW, I know little about Manafort, but much about the rule of law (good) and the rule of men (bad). This is a red letter sad day.
