Ohio Voting Machines, Public Cannot Witness Count in Athens, Police Called

Concerned citizens enter the Athens County Board of Elections in Ohio, asking to witness the count and videotape the "Chain of Custody", and also ask for the machine count to be checked against the paper count in one county. They are denied, though the Board cannot show a law to state the reasons why. They are told if the public or press attempts to witness the vote either at the polls or during the count, they will be charged with loitering. When the questions persist, and the Board realizes they are being taped, they call the Police.

We the People deserve to watch our votes be counted.
