Military Absentee Ballots

by drew on November 7, 2012 · 16 comments

WASHINGTON, DC – Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.

“I told Gunny we got a bunch of ballots instead of ammo,” Davis told investigators earlier today. “He told me to file a report of improper delivery and that the chain of command would take care of it. We didn’t hear anything for three weeks. While we were waiting we came under fire so we dumped a bunch of them in the Hescoes. We didn’t dig those ones back out.”

After military officials realized the initial error, the ballots were then sent back to the U.S. but suffered a series of setbacks.

Twelve boxes of ballots were dropped overboard during delivery to the USS Kearsarge (LHD-3) in the Persian Gulf, then while the ship sailed to Bahrain, postal clerks allegedly pocketed whatever ballots they wanted.

The remaining absentee ballots were loaded onto a C-130, but the flight was delayed until November 1st so the crew could get tax free pay for the month. Once the ballots arrived stateside they were promptly mailed to each state’s counting facility, reaching their final destination on November 7th.

“It’s a shame,” Rear Admiral John Dawes said when asked for comment. “I expected a delay so I ordered that everyone cast their votes eight months ago. It’s really unfortunate that our mail system failed us and directly affected the course of history.”

Upon hearing the news, angry Republicans have begun a demand for a recount, but most military absentee voters have shrugged off the news, with many wondering whether the care packages their families sent six months ago were ever going to show up

Although the Duffel Bag is a satirical site, there have been reports that our military personnel were not able to vote because of lack of voting stations, and there are all to often missing ballots. Often when pieces like this are written, they are based on some truth and suspicions; a subtle way of saying look into this without giving up sources or being marked as a whistleblower. Most jokes and humor hit a nerve because there is at least a hint of underlying truth involved.

The reports of voter fraud within the U.S. through voting machine settings, intimidation at the polls, lack of supervision at the polling stations and as votes were counted, discrepancies between the exit polls and the election totals and double voting as well as the voting of dead people and dogs, cartoon characters etc. where no ID’s were required is growing daily.

Stand-up America, demand that their votes be counted if they haven’t!! And if there are military ballots missing, they should be allowed to vote again! And demand recounts within the U.S. if outcomes are questionable. Remember Al Franken… (missing votes, stolen votes, questionable vote count process. It later turned out that he had not won, but we let him stay in office.) The 2012 Presidential election (or any downline races) should not be certified until all is done to guarantee that all the votes were counted and counted correctly and that all the voting was fair and accurate!

    Anybody with a brain knows this was intentional. The military neither likes or respects obama, especially when he put them down as unpatriotic for not wanting to carry their own health insurance. I wish the media would follow through with this but they wont. They are owned by rich cats who have made theirs so do not care what happens to the rest of us or this country.

  3. This is an absolute travesty. After all the sacrifices of our Military. The Democrats did EVERYTHING in their power to steal the election. WE CANNOT ACCEPT THIS.

    I so agree with you Joann. It saddens me to think that this kind hearted man who loves our country will not have the opportunity to be our president. I was so looking forward to having a president and First Lady we could be proud of.

      THERE WAS A LOT DEPENDING ON ROMNEY BUT THIS ELECTION WAS A FRAUD JUST LIKE 2008. HOW ABOUT THOSE THOUSAND MUSLIMS HE HAD BROUGHT IN HERE-GET 20,000 FOR BEING HERE AND ALL VOTED FOR HIM? IT DIDN’T MATTER IF THEY WERE ILLEGAL-THEY WERE HIS SAME RELIGION SO HE DID THAT ONE AND MADE SURE SOLDIERS WOULDN’T GET THEIR BALLOTS TO VOTE FOR HE KNEW HE WOULD LOSE TO ROMNEY. AS IT IS THE BALLOTS WERE A DAY LATE GETTING HERE AND MANY ENDED UP IN THE WATER WHILE LOADING THEM ON A SHIP AND SHIPPED BY BOAT TAKES LONGER. BIG, BIG FRAUD IN THIS ELECTION NATION WIDE. YOU ALL HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING YET AS IT IS JUST BEGINNING.GOD BLESS USA AND LEGAL CITIZENS.

    This is satire right?

    • TaxiSlim says:

      Of course it is, but why spoil the fun?

      • Ask Marion says:

        It is satire, but often there is some truth to satire… actually in most humor. I say check it out and see how many military votes weren’t counted. How many troops didn’t get to vote and then add that to the other voter fraud.

        If there is nothing to it… so be it. But perhaps it is someones stealth heads-up?!?

  11. Suedataji says:

    Recounting must be done this was not a fair election.

  12. Craig Manuel says:

    It is never too late to count the ballots of our countries finest! Any other approach is against all pricipals of an American.

  13. tiffany says:

    I hope they are going to do a recount these men and women are out fighting for our country and arent going to have a chance for there vote to count that would be WRONG

We focus on veterans, military stories, defense, politics (sometimes) and life on base — with a comedic twist. We are in no way, shape, or form, a real news outlet. Just about everything on this website is satirical in nature.

    Guys, this is a joke. Hence the “Satirical” at the top. The article was meant to be funny but people took it seriously. In other words.. this didn’t actually happen!

  16. AskMarion says:

    I have had an amazing response (reads, comments and emails) to this post, which is satirical. The first time I read it, I thought it was true, until I looked around on the originial site.

    However… although the Duffel Bag is a satirical site, there have been reports that many of our military personnel were not able to vote because of lack of voting stations, and there are all to often missing ballots.

    About 80% of the Duffell Bag’s posts are satirical or humorous, but often when pieces like this are written, they are based on some truth and suspicions; a subtle way of saying look into this without giving up sources or being marked as a whistleblower. Most jokes and humor hit a nerve because there is at least a hint of underlying truth involved. It is the reason I tweeted this on to the Romney campaign and others… just to take a closer look and follow through on at least the possibility that there might be something to it.

    The reports of voter fraud within the U.S. through suspicious voting machine settings, intimidation at the polls, lack of supervision at the polling stations and as votes were counted, discrepancies between the exit polls and the election totals and double voting as well as the voting of dead people and dogs, cartoon characters etc. where no ID’s were required is growing daily.

    Below are just a few tweets highlighting that:
