Former Appalachia mayor Ben Cooper and 14 others were convicted of voter fraud after conspiring to manipulate the 2004 elections in his town by buying the votes of residents, offering them cigarettes, beer, and pork rinds. He and his supporters also stole absentee ballots from the mail. This was the largest voter fraud conspiracy to date in Virginia. Cooper was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but the term was suspended after he served two years in jail and another two years in electronic home monitoring detention. Most of the other 14 defendants received suspended sentences or house arrest.

Six Lincoln County Democrats pleaded guilty to charges of participating in a conspiracy to buy votes dating back to 1990. The indictment charged that the six conspired to buy votes in elections held in 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, and 2004 "for the purpose of selecting and electing candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives and in some instances, for the presidency and vice presidency of the U.S." The men paid for votes in liquor and cash, typically $20 per vote, and handed out slates listing preferred candidates. The five also laid gravel on roads for supporters and fixed traffic tickets. Some of their sentences included the following: Vance was sentenced to 30 months of imprisonment, Stowers received six months of imprisonment, and Wandell Adkins received four months in a halfway house.

Johnny "Big John" Mendez, former Logan County Sheriff, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to buy votes.

He was sentenced to a year of home confinement and five years of probation.

He also was ordered to give speeches on his personal experiences with corruption to eighth grade civics classes and others.

This city votes today in its first mayoral election in 64 years without an incumbent. But high voter apathy combined with general disgust over the highly personal, mudslinging campaigns of candidates Michael Woo and Richard Riordan have left many voters wishing they could pull a lever for neither.

Playoff voting (All logos are paired against each another as in a cup. Each users votes which of the two logos that face each other that they think is best. The winner of each duel is paired against another winner until only one logo remains). Note: This option was added after several days of voting.

Instant-runoff voting (rank the candidates and conduct a virtual run-off election, each time eliminating the candidate with the fewest first-place votes until one candidate has a majority of first-place votes).

Average voting: This guarantees (Wow!) a high level of transparency and makes it very easy for everyone to use their votes to the effect they find useful or necessary (summarise to "easy to vote"); that is, if they dislike a particular logo very strongly, they can exercise a high influence to prevent it from being successful, whereas they can also express moderate opinions or very strong approval.

At the state level, early contest states have generally seen affordability improve across the income spectrum. However, with the exception of New Hampshire, affordability tended to improve most for households earning higher incomes. Although affordability gains for lower-income households were greater than the national rate in Iowa and New Hampshire, they were far below the national rate in Nevada and South Carolina. In these states affordability gains for higher-income households were greater than the national rate.

Some of the early-voting states mirror national housing market trends, but their differences, such as above- or below-average homeownership rates, distribution of improvements in affordability, and price growth may lead to different voting patterns in these early states than in the rest of the U.S. Regardless of the outcome of these primary and caucus votes, housing plays a key role in the lives of voters and thus will have to be something that the candidates address before November.

Campaigning for the 2008 presidential election started earlier than any on record. And now it looks like voting could actually begin in 2007, as states continue to maneuver to be the earliest to hold nominating contests.

In previous chapters, we compared approval voting to other single-ballot voting systems that may restrict the numbers of candidates one is allowed to vote for, and to runoff election systems in which the two candidates with the most first-ballot votes go onto the runoff ballot. Approval voting seems to be competitive and often superior to other systems in its ability to elicit honest or sincere responses from voters, its relative invulnerability to strategic manipulation, and its propensity to elect Condorcet or majority candidates. With respect to the last criterion, it was shown in Chapter 4 that approval voting would almost surely have found the probable Condorcet candidate in an important congressional leadership contest in 1976.

Bloomberg has barely crossed paths on the trail with his fellow Democrats. He decided to skip the first four voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina in favor of focusing on the 14 states that vote on March 3 and the contests that come afterward.

The poll released Tuesday shows Sanders leading in the Democratic primary contest, at 31% support nationally. After Bloomberg at 19%, Biden is at 15%, Warren at 12%, Klobuchar at 9% and Buttigieg at 8%. Steyer is at 2%, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is at less than 1%, with 5% undecided.

This is among the second lowest vote share of the Congress in its electoral history in the city with the lowest being in 1967 when the party got 23.04 per cent votes. As the results of the elections were declared on May 16, the BJP emerged victorious with its candidate Kirron Kher having received 1.91 lakh votes against four time MP Pawan Kumar Bansal who pulled 1.21 lakh votes.

In the past elections, the contest in Chandigarh has been between the Congress and the BJP with no third party managing to garner much votes. However, this time the AAP received 23.97 per cent vote share. The maximum any other party had received earlier at the third slot was when senior BJP leader Harmohan Dhawan contested from BSP ticket during the 2009 Lok Sabha elections. He had polled 17.88 per cent votes.

It was the BJP that led in all the 20 rounds of counting held on Friday, not giving any lead to the Congress. Interestingly, in as many as eight rounds of counting it was the AAP that was ahead of the Congress vying for the second slot. AAP candidate Gulkirat Kaur Panag finished a close third with a difference of only 13,041 votes from Bansal. 041b061a72
