Why bring this up now, one may ask?
Well, we happened upon a local blog, The Intercept which had a posting discussing the Poll Tapes missing in the 2006 RTA (Pima County Regional Transportation Authority) Election, and wondered how that could happen.
That led us to a great blog put out by John Brakey,(audit-az.blogspot.com). John has done extensive work on how Arizona elections are held, and more specifically, how votes can be tampered with.
We must remember that our recent Oro Valley Mayoral election went from Mike Zinkin being ahead by 600 votes after the mail ballots,(approximately 67% of the total vote), to ultimately losing the election by 30 votes, out of over 15,000 votes cast.
Might there have been any "irregularities" in this election? We don't know, but perhaps it would be worth looking into as John Brakey did with the 2006 RTA election.
Please take the time to read the Intercept article here.
Also, I'm sure it would be worth your time to log on to AuditAz blog here.
Who knows? It might be some "food for thought."
