PHOENIX, November 6, 2012- For nearly two years now, President Barrack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney have been campaigning for the election of our lifetime. Through this campaign, we’ve witnessed nasty ads, fallacious rhetoric, and a divided nation.
Yet as we have watched the two candidates go at it, Election Day 2012 has finally come upon on us before we could even catch our breath.
Throughout the day, we’ve even heard numerous reports of voter fraud, guns at polling centers, and voter intimidation.
In Michigan, The Republican Party is charging that an unidentified voter with a gun threatened a poll watcher. The threatened poll watcher didn’t want to escalate the situation so he left the building and called the police.
To much surprise, the Detroit police refused to respond to his call, leaving the man alone.
In Pennsylvania, the Black Panthers were seen standing outside polling booths, intimidating voters just like they did in 2008. To help counter the Black Panther’s intimidation tactics, a group of former Navy Seals also stood guard outside these polling centers, to make sure the Panthers don’t bother anyone on their way to vote.
Even voting machines in the swing-state of Wisconsin were having faults. In Pewaukee, a voting machine did not register a voter’s ballot after he had inserted it. In the liberal stronghold of Madison, there were reports that when casting your ballot, it would ask you to select two presidential candidates.
Reid Magney, spokesman for the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, said that, “This is not something that happens all the time, but it’s not particularly out of the ordinary either. There may be a bit of a delay in getting this ward’s vote total reported.”
All the while, election night is going to be very exciting to say the least. No one can confidently predict who will prevail, with some even suggesting we may not know for weeks.
We will monitor the results as the come in all night long (I am calling an all-nighter) and we welcome you to join us as the night progresses and let us know how you feel about Election Day 2012 and what it means for the country.
