    This could be interesting because how many voted that was not counted. This could lead to a different outcome possibly and where is the MSM report on this. Go to 9wsyr.com.



    Fulton County (WSYR-TV) – NewsChannel 9 has learned voting machines in Fulton County, which is a part of the 23rd Congressional District, have been impounded, after the machines were not working property today, the Fulton County Board of Elections confirms.

    The county was forced to switch over to paper ballots.

    They were not planning on counting any votes Tuesday night. We’re told by the Board of Elections, the paper ballots cannot be touched until the absentee ballots are opened a week from Tuesday.

    The Board of Elections says they do not know how many people voted, but there are 22 districts in Fulton County.

    23 has 654,000 people who live in it, 55,000 live in Fulton plus only probably half that voted if not less. :)

    So they don't deserve to have their votes counted?

    What an interesting view of democracy you have. It's a tight race, these votes might change the outcome.... is that the problem?

    Hoffman will still lose. Count the votes of course. However, there is no reason to think that they would not be consistent with the rest of the district.

    I don't disagree, but we are still a democracy and if people bothered to vote, then they should have their votes counted.

    Personally, I didn't expect Hoffman to win but I'm pretty pleased that he did so well.... bodes well for Conservatives in the coming months.

    Did I say that? And the article never said they would not be counted, it said they would not be counted tonight.

    Pleased he did so well? It was basically a Democrat vs a Republican. Don't delude yourself otherwise. He showed how third party and Conservative he was when he was lapping up those endorsements and $$$ from the GOP. He would of been another Jim DeMint Republican most likely.

    Jumping to quite the conclusion there, CG ... I don't see where she says the votes shouldn't be counted.
