We’ve all heard about early voting and election-day voting. It appears there’s a new form of voting – late voting – and Democrats have that market cornered.
Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review tackles the issue, noting that whenever a close race has the results reversed it seems to invariably land in favor of the Democrats. Between controversial “provisional ballots” and recounts, whatever margin showed the Republican winning will likely be erased, often enough to force either a runoff election or an outright Democratic win.
Take, for example, Broward County, Florida. Somehow, 24,000 people voted for the top of the ballot, the gubornatorial race, as well as all of the down-ballot races and measures, but for some reason skipped the Senate vote. 24,000.
As of Thursday evening, 676,706 votes had been counted in Broward in the U.S. Senate race, according to the Broward Supervisor of Elections website, overwhelmingly for Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson over Republican Rick Scott. But nearly every other statewide office garnered more votes in Broward than the Senate race, particularly the contest for governor, with 24,763 more voters — 701,469 in all — weighing in.
Meanwhile, the supervisor’s department is still counting both early and absentee votes — which have already been transmitted to the state by every other county in Florida save Palm Beach, which is still tallying absentee ballots.
Rick Scott, who’s Senatorial election seems in jeopardy, isn’t taking it laying down.

If what’s happening in Broward County and other close races around the country doesn’t sound fishy, you’re probably a Democrat. Otherwise, your common sense klaxons would be blaring. This smells like corruption because it almost certainly is.
