Black Box Voting : 1-7-08: Silvestro the Cat & New Hampshire Elections
Kicking myself for not tediously taking screen shots of every friggin' municipality in the dumb Googlemap thing. Why can't they just add a table below it?

One noticeable thing on the 59 screen shots I grabbed between 10:45 pm NH time and midnight NH time, is that the ones that had late results (not submitted as of 4 hours after poll closing) -- well, you'd expect them to be hand count locations, right? Nope. Mostly Diebold locations. That's a major red flag to me. How the heck can you not push "print" for four hours??? It normally takes only 30 minutes to wrap things up and print the poll tape when the polls close.

My method was grabbing the municipalities left to right, right to left, starting at the south end of the state and working up. I only got about three rows up. Anyone who has additional time slice information documenting late reporters I'd like to see it.

Late reporters from the first 59 locations I grabbed:

BRENTWOOD - Diebold location - had the Dem results, but no Republican results as of 11:53 pm (polls closed at 7)

CHESTERFIELD - Hand count location - no results as of 11:00 pm

DERRY - Diebold location - no results in as of 11:42 pm

FREMONT - Diebold location - no results in as of 11:48 pm

GREENFIELD - Hand count location - no results in as of 11:52 pm

HAMPTON - Diebold location - results in on time, but I flagged this because every Dem candidate had a result divisible by 5 and for Republicans, Huckabee 217, McCain 1217, Romney 1217, it just looked weird. So much for my statistical capabilities.

HOLLIS - Diebold location - results not in as of 11:54 pm

NEW IPSWICH - Diebold location - results not in as of 10:52 pm

NEWTON - Diebold location - results not in as of 10:58 pm

PELHAM - Diebold location - results not in as of 10:56 pm

TEMPLE - Hand count location - results not in as of 11:26 pm

WINCHESTER - Diebold location - results not in as of 10:46 pm

Weren't these votes machine-counted, by optically scanning paper ballots, rather than machine-voted?

On the othe hand, I see no correlation with number of tallied votes and late reporting:

Brentwood - 838
Chesterfield - 952
Derry - 5230
Fremont - 742
Greenfield - 368
Hampton - 3974
Hollis - 1923
New Ipswich - 717
Newton - 888
Pelham - 2484
Temple - 395
Winchester - 826

Not much I can see. In other words, I don't think the results coming in after 4 hours changed much.
