Are you serious or is this a joke,has no one ever heard of proxy voting? That's where a person or group of people who are not going to be able to be present ask other's to vote for them,it allows them to be some where different and still have their vote count. It's part of parlimentry procedure in political and business dealings,this reporter either knows this or she is an example of the lack of educated people leaving our universities and starting jobs they are NOT qualified for. It also shows how uneducated many of those who posted on this topic are.
The rules of some assemblies presently forbid proxy voting. For example, in both houses of the U.S. Congress, as well as in most if not all state legislatures, each member must be present and cast his own vote for that vote to be counted. This can result, however, in the absence of a quorum and the need to compel attendance by a sufficient number of missing members to get a quorum. See call of the house.

So would it be ok for me to go and vote in a presidential election say four times? no it wouldn't and thus it is unnacceptable for these people to do this, as far as all of them getting disciplined...oh well we citizens get disciplined for speeding and breaking laws why are they not held accountable for this misconduct and manipulation?

I agree that it is unacceptable for them to be doing this, although if each one of them votes four times then its not much different. Say if everyone voted once and a single person voted four times. This would more drastically change the outcome. I agree that something should be done to re institute order in the voting session.

Sadly enough, this is old news, and well known. Its called "ghost voting". Just google it. Here is one article that will make your blood boil. The corruption will not stop just because we want it to....
