In truth, if your guy wins you say nothing.

You on the left decide whether you think an election is fair based on who won. We on the right decide whether we think an election was fair based on the process used to carry it out. Transparency and blocking avenues to cheat are two of the keys. How many elections have you lefties been "finding" ballots or massaging the count for weeks to try to get your guy or girl over the finish line by hook or crook?

The Beaufort County Board of Elections, which will conduct these elections, has an excellent track record for transparency, honesty, and running a tight ship. I would not expect any problems this time. One important advance in making these elections more secure is that it is the first time that we will be using photo ID requirements to vote. That is a big plus, but one the Democrats and left fought long and hard against.

to add, we will find out if these elections are fair the moment we find out who won.

The spendthrft big government leftists running our current Washington city government gave us a ten percent tax increase last year and tried to give us another one this year. It is time to "throw the rascals out" from our Tammany Hall style mayor right on down to his flunkies on the city council. At the same time, the major's personal agenda has gotten the city sued and cost us a fortune. The mayor's Tammany Hall machine needs to go down in flames.
