A Lubbock man's vote hangs in a state of uncertainty. Jay Leeson went to vote at Parsons Elementary School Tuesday morning. When he got there, election workers told him he had voted four days ago at United Supermarket at 82nd Street and Frankford.

Leeson presented his drivers license with his signature, which did not match the signature on Friday's voter sheet.  Leeson was allowed to cast a provisional ballot until an investigation is complete.

"My problem is that because we aren't able to quantify whether or not it's clerical or fraud, there's no way for me to vote anything else but a provisional vote that may or may not be counted when all the ballots are counted. But I know one thing. Tonight, the most important election of my lifetime, my vote won't be on that screen," Leeson said.

Dorothy Kennedy, elections administrator for Lubbock County said workers in her office, the Secretary of State's office and the Department of Public Safety will continue to look into the situation and pass it on to the District Attorney if need be.

As I had said previously, they will pretend to count the votes, and tell us the name of their pre-entered winner. (except we now need to use past tense for the election night "reality show".If the provisional vote was on paper, it is one of the few legitimate verifiable votes on record
