Alleged Voting Fraud in OC

UPDATE: I just learned directly from the Steve Young Campaign (not the radio host as some commentators on the Huffington Post believe) that the number of districts is incorrect. There were problems in a few districts. – Michael Randall

From The Huffington Post:

Calls are coming in from the 48th District of Orange County, California are reporting voting machines in over 30 heavily Democratic precincts are not working and at most of these locations there are no paper ballots available as backups.

In some of the precincts, where machines aren’t working, if there are paper ballorts, they are in Vietnamese.

If you encounter voting problems, you can call 1-866 OUR VOTE (1-866-687-8683)

    A polite request.

    The last three post titles read as follows:

    Alleged Voting Fraud in OC
    Election Day in The OC
    Snoop Busted in the OC

    This is the Orange County metroblog. If an item is listed, we the readers will assume that it happened someplace in Orange County, unless otherwise specified. And in fact, as natives, we are also aware that OC is comprised of a large number of cities and can, unlike people from LA, the IE, or seemingly everywhere else in the country, differentiate one city from another.

    So, that being said, wouldn’t we all be better off with post titles more like this?

    Alleged Voting Fraud in 48th District
    Election Day
    Snoop Busted

    Also, please stop saying “The OC”. You’re only encouraging those TV idiots. Do Beverly Hills residents say they live in “Beverly Hills 90210”?

    All elections are local. Sorry you don’t feel that way.

    So it’s not ok for the LA metroblog to use the term LA?

    Anonymous, I understand your point.

    However, take pity on us non-paid unprofessionals over here. Some days I feel lucky just to type something at all, much less question if I am using “the” in front of an OC.

    Oh, and thanks Mike, for the update.

    No problem Gina.

    I was in the middle of it at the Party office when I got the information. We were chasing it down all afternoon.
