Chicago Election stories



A headline in a Chicago newspaper after the election:

VOTER FRAUD LIGHT TO MODERATE

A TV newsman told of a candidate to be re-elected Chicago alderman who was actually in jail on the day of the election. He got a telephone interview with the alderman on that day. But, when the alderman tried to speak, a picture of the Cook County Jail was put on the screen, and the alderman could not be heard--it sounded as if there was some kind of interference. They backed off for a few minutes, then tried again, and had the same problem. It turned out the loud noise was from other prisoners shouting whenever their temporary home came on the screen. The newsman had the alderman request quiet during the interview, and was able to continue.

This last Tuesday, some voters in one precinct did not have their votes count. They were given paper ballots to mark, but were given a stylus instead of a pen. The stylus was for touch screen voting, but the voters were told that it wrote with invisible ink. They put the tip of the stylus against each place they wished to make a mark, as if it were writing, and thought they were voting. Some people did not fall for that story, and reportedly the problem was corrected when an actual pen was provided.
