CHICAGO — Paul Miller reports: Early Voting in Illinois got off to its typical start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.
Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan had trouble voting for himself on Monday when early voting started in Illinois.
“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent.”
“You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race.
Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race.

Moynihan offered this gracious lesson to his followers on Twitter: “Be careful when you vote in Illinois. Make sure you take the time to check your votes before submitting.” Read the rest of this entry »
Sandra Fluke, the infamous former Georgetown law student who begged for free birth control in front of Congress, “rallied” a crowd of just 40 people on the University of Florida campus yesterday.
Women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke made an appearance on Turlington Plaza on Wednesday to encourage students to utilize early voting for next week’s presidential election.
Fluke stopped at UF as part of her “It’s On You” Youth Early Vote Campus Outreach tour.
About 40 students gathered by the potato statue to listen.
I’m not even going get into why they chose to name Fluke’s campus outreach tour “it’s on you” but it’s clear Fluke’s 15 minutes are over. There is only so long you can stay legitimate based on demanding people pay for your sex life and by complaining about Rush Limbaugh calling you a slut. Not to mention, her “rally” crowd really is an indicator of just how unenthused youth voters are this time around. If there’s one place liberals should be able to get young liberals whipped into a frenzy, it’s on a college campus (not to mention, college professors are always talking about how much they hate Rush Limbaugh) and that clearly didn’t happen here.
