1,913,369 Ballots Thrown Away - Greg Palast

my notes ( ? )

It’s official: 1,913,369 ballots were cast but never counted in the 2016 presidential race. That’s from the US Elections Assistance Commission... your chance of having your vote simply go uncounted, “spoiled,” is 900% higher if you're Black than if you're white...

Donald Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes... 75,355 ballots were never counted... Most of these vanished votes were cast in Detroit — where only one in ten city residents are white... If you counted those ballots ... Clinton would have won. And if this pattern held in the other two states’ exit polls that reported she won... Clinton should have won the Electoral College...

87 machines broke down... Republican Attorney General ruled ... precincts with the missing count ... were barred from the re-count... 87 machines not counting thousands of ballots, is a very big deal...

if the count went ahead unimpeded, Trump would lose Michigan. So Trump did the only thing he could do: stop the count.
