What happened to the absentee ballot thread? I was hoping for a citation for one of your posters' comments on the frequency of voter fraud.

So glad this will all be over soon.

The Election will be over by 8 pm, once they call North Carolina and or Florida it's over for Trump. It looks like Clinton will get 320 or so Electoral Votes.

The voting set up at precinct 46 is a cluster you-know-what. Total confusion. 5 lines with no sign saying what the lines are for or any organization. A second grader could have organized it better. You leave after voting with absolutely no confidence that your vote will be counted....but I can tell you who will win that precinct just by looking around.

And back in the world of facts... Trump dominating early elections...

New Hampshire Midnight Results...

"In Dixville Notch, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump 4-2. Libertarian Gary Johnson received one vote, and the 2012 Republican candidate, Mitt Romney received a surprise write-in ballot. In the slightly larger burg of Hart's Location, Clinton won with 17 votes to Trump's 14. Johnson got three votes, while write-ins Bernie Sanders and John Kasich each got one. And in Millsfield, Trump won decisively, 16-4, with one write-in for Bernie Sanders."

ISIS or Soros hacked the voting machines at the Ridgeland Rec Center. None of them work. The supervisor said she had never seen them do what they were doing. Technician said likewise. Long lines and paper ballots!

Kapt, you're always good for a laugh, but 11:16 thinks ISIS or Soros is stealing votes at the Ridgeland Rec Center!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I can't even process the delusions you people live in each day.

The outcome of the presidential election was decided years ago. Counting the votes is not necessary. Sort of funny that there are still a few people that think their vote counts.

On another note anybody been reading Podesta's emails. He has some very interesting emails about Eugenics and 3 parent babies. Seems the evil agenda about the "Ultimate Race" is coming from the left not the right.

I'm applying for head of the local reeducation camp that will house you Trumpettes after Hillary is sworn in.

@12:22pm...We already have brainwashing...er, I mean reeducation camps. Our education system has been at it for years. Ole Mess is on the cutting edge.

And when Hillary camp learns to follow the law (no campaigning within 150ft) and how to show up wearing clothing...

I want to be the first one to say thanks.

NEW YORK –Topless women protested inside Donald Trump’s polling precinct in Midtown Manhattan on Election Day.

WABC, an ABC-affiliate, reports the two women were arrested.

The incident occurred more than an hour before the Republican nominee arrived to cast his vote at P.S. 59.

The women reportedly entered the precinct and then took off their tops. They also made anti-Trump remarks.

Trump is conducting interviews at 2:00 p.m. eastern on election day and he is repeating his "rigged system" mantra. Tells me he knows it's over and he lost. Not surprising at all. Quite predictable.

If she wins, I hope that this country revolts and a war breaks out.

Guess what happens tomorrow .......???? NOTHING....we all get up and go to work just like we did today. I know that comes as a shock to some. Nothing changes no matter what, the path has been laid out. There is nothing more to do. Period.

I'm not sure how anyone could "rig" an election, but when I see this, I think dirty politics?...

CLINTON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – Today is Election Day and for the most part, voting has been smooth.

Many areas are already seeing long lines with some officials saying they wouldn’t be surprised if voter turnout topped 80 percent.

However, there have been some scattered issues where voters are encountering problems.

Election judges in Clinton Township, Butler County confirmed there were issues with two of their eight automated voting machines. Most of the issues came when people tried to vote straight party ticket.

However, other said they specifically wanted to vote for Republican Donald Trump only to see their vote switched before their eyes to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I went back, pressed Trump again. Three times I did this, so then I called one of the women that were working the polls over. And she said you must be doing it wrong. She did it three times and it defaulted to Hillary every time,” Bobbie Lee Hawranko said.

“If somebody has an issue, they should certainly let the judge of elections at the precinct know and also call their county bureau of elections as folks have done here this morning,” Pa. Rep. Daryl Metcalfe said.

See the video too...
Probably just a calibration issue?? Or, does this hold water to the claim "rigged"?

Trump already filing lawsuits in states he is trailing... Nevada lawsuit filed

KaptKangaroo said...

I experienced "voter suppression" today, see the "suppression" inherent in the system...

Waited in line 45 minutes because everyone wanted to vote. You know I'm being suppressed! Reality Check: It was raining and there were a lot of people voting before work.

Then they invited people of naming that begins with the letter "S" or the letters "A-E" to the front. Am I being suppressed or oppressed?!? Reality Check: Trying to relieve some of the suppression going on above.

Only when I got to the front of the line did they say people of naming that begins with "M-R" can go to the check-in table. That's it! Reality Check: My bad luck!

Old news @ 1:40 PM.

Ruled OK this AM. Nice try.

Polls held open two hours after posted end time and a rush of 150 late "early" voters.

People need to learn that if the voting machine changes a Trump vote to a Clinton vote it doesn't need calibrated. It is working as expected. Do not complain. Ask the Justice Dept. if you are in doubt.

11:04 - with the new voting system in Hinds County there is no designation for different lines. Where it used to be divided by alphabet so that you would go to the poll books where your last name would be, that is not required with this new technology. So while it might have looked to be confused, maybe it was just that you expected something not required. What would you like - a sign that says "Get into a line"?


Don't know why you think your ballot won't be counted - once it is put into the scanner, it is counted. Nothing else is required. Just what do you expect?

Or maybe you are just one of the JJ readers that are always looking for something to bitch about and when its not there, you'll do it anyway.

You're so right!! WEEEE get up and go to work... The freeloaders don't. Illegals CONTINUE to pour across the borders... WEEEE continue to work long and hard to fund the many others who rely on the liberal gimmies that will only balloon going forward.

I agree that illegal immigrants need to be prevented from entering our country and the social welfare system needs to be completely revamped. However I do not think either one of these candidates are capable of doing either.
I am pro-life but do not believe Roe vs. Wade will ever be overturned or should be overturned. It is not my place to judge someone over their personal beliefs or choices.
Higher education in our country is nothing more than a money making scheme with student loans being made in record numbers and what I consider to be predatory lending. We could all learn a lot by looking at the efficiency and quality of the education system in Germany.
I love the USA and all of the opportunities we are given. This is a very difficult election for a lot of Americans myself included. I just hope people did not make a hasty decision by watching soundbites on CNN, Fox News or Facebook of all places.

3:50, judging by your comment, you sound like a thoughtful, intelligent person. Whenever I post a comment like yours, no one responds because they don't know how to take it. So I'm posting to say THANK YOU! I'm right there with you.

She's going to do way worse than "take your guns". She's going to sign away the portion of American Sovereignty which PROTECTS your right to be armed (and, probably, your right to Self-defense).

THEN, she'll start working on that pesky Freedom of Speech (not to mention Internet freedom, and Freedom of the Press).

In essence, she's going to do her best, to curtail ANY of your rights which her corporate/foreign sponsors find inconvenient.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
