Not misdeeds my dear friend.  Proof of fraud is more like it.

No way.  I would be pleased to reveal all in a court of law - or if it
serves my interests.  And rewriting the poll results is
revisionism.  Furthermore - I am only one instance of polling booth
abuse.  How many others have their been?

The poll was a fraud and the chair and alternate chair choose to
participate in that fraud even after you advised them such fraud was
possible.  My question is - do you know why they went ahead with it after
being warned by yourself that the results could be invalidated?

I'm all for that as long as we have choice and a set of controls which not
only exclude fraud but also validate or enumerate the "voters" lists.

And that does not exists.

That's the way it goes.
