In 2004, Jordan and I were observers during the Cuyahoga County presidential recount where we observed fraud. The recount was supposed to be from a randomized selection of 3% of the precincts. What happened is that the precincts were chosen ahead of time and the ballots were actually pre-sorted. Two workers were convicted of rigging the recount, but their conviction was overturned on a technicality and no re-trial was made.
Since then, I’ve been working with election integrity issues and this year (as I did 4 years ago), I will be working as an election observer.
I will be out of the office on Tuesday November 8 and will be back seeing patients on Thursday.
