5. Primaries are handled by the secretaries of state, not the Democratic party.

 

If this was happening at a caucus, then yes, you could place blame at the state democratic party.

13. I don't even know the states these peopel are in,

maybe a caucus maybe a straight election, i just know then as on-line friends, One was in Colorado, not sure what that was. Mostly I have to ask where they live when discussing things, too many people I know for over 10 years but never met in real life.

8. After Bush won and

the electronic machines came to be we expected the dems to investigate and now it is clear why they didn't ever do anything, it's good for them too. At this point they are really so unafraid of consequences they are rather open about what they are doing.

2. GOP getting ready for the GE

And all those people who don't vote in the primaries are still at risk.

4. but it is happening in the primaries as well, people being taken off the democratic rolls

and being told they changed their affiliation. I keep hearing more stories every day, some from people I know who are not on political boards but hobbie boards. it is not good.

12. Election fraud

 

Note the pattern: large states with lots of delegates at stake. All using the same software.

Other pattern: running out of ballots. The 1st time happenstance. 2nd time coincidence. 3rd time enemy actionNow it's happened in state after state after state. Voter suppression by simply not having enough ballots.

Have they not figured out that this election is generating huge turnout? Actually, they probably have. And they've determined that not having enough ballots on hand is a viable way to suppress turnout.

It's not that they don't learn from experience. It's that they learn all the wrong lessons.

14. My brother was purged last year here in NY.

 

He is an independent and they said he had not voted in several years so they removed him from the rolls.

15. my state doesn't issue permanent absentee ballots

 

even for folks on ssdi (permanently disabled)

that's definitely the most sensible and efficient policy

19. It's a conspiracy-Hillary hired NSA psychics to figure out

 

who would vote for Sanders and then arranged for state officials to purge the voter rolls.

(Note: sarcasm)
