Charles M. Baron's answer The poll workers cannot access the votes, and there would be no way to confirm how you voted, since all votes are anonymous. You can check ALL recorded votes by submitting a public records request to your county elections department. After a certain point in time, all of those paper ballots will become part of the public records.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer That's a very interesting question. There is no authority requiring such a meeting, but if one is desired, and assuming that the bylaws don't cover the issue, the best way to handle it would be for both persons to agree on a procedure. Either one could call for the meeting. Are you asking about a meeting of the board of directors or of the membership? In either case, depending on which side they take regarding the election, directors or officers could possibly refuse to recognize the call...
Forrest Clinton Barbour's answer Every jail has their own policy on how long they will hold someone while awaiting another jurisdiction to come pick them up. The most common amount of time that I see is 10 days. Call the jail and ask.
Arthur Calderon's answer It is incredibly hard to get a reduction in the sentence after the judge issues his sentencing order, unless very specific requirements are met. You will likely need to consult with an attorney so that he or she can gather additional information to advise you accordingly.
Josh Rohrscheib's answer I'd talk to the County Clerk, unless you think that's the source of the fraud. Perhaps then turn to your State's Attorney. If you don't get any traction, you might raise the issue with the chairman of the county party adversely impacted by the fraud. They may be able to get more traction in pursuing it and put more resources into getting at the truth.
Brent T. Geers' answer I don't see why not. I'm unaware of any fire chief being an elected position, and so there is no conflict by holding two different elected positions. More importantly, in most cases, the school district (and its board) is a separate and distinct entity from the local government. It's really no different from any other city employee being elected to the school board. The answer would be different, of course, if a school district employee were to be elected to the school board - a clear conflict.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer That sounds like an election law violation. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself.
