The pictures above show the Shelby County Participating Voter list,
with 10 absentee votes and 20 At Polls votes. Superimposed over this
is a photo of Shelby County's certified results, which show 619 At
Polls votes.

Poster logs from Shelby County -- obtained only after a representative
of the court appeared at Shelby County elections to order compliance,
which was refused (causing the court to seal and sequester the logs
"in the bosom of the court") -- when eventually released, show two
voting machine uploads on August 4 from the COR09 precinct. Here is
one of the uploads:

THE DETECTIVE WORK: How do we know this was August 4?

The number 1280915949 is a Unix time stamp. You can convert Unix time stamps by entering a formula, or by going to the Internet and using any online converter, like this:

But can we be sure they were uploading something from a voting
machine? AccuVote-TS is the touchscreen voting machine brand used in Shelby County polling places.

Vote uploads are logged in two places. In addition to the poster log
entry above, the following entry appears in the audit log inside a
hidden, off-the-books database Shelby County was required to provide
to us:

How do we know "VCenter 389" is precinct COR09? A table in the Shelby County elections database cracks the code for GEMS vote center numbers. From VCenter table: [mdb cor09.png]

COR09 Hope Presbyterian Church, Sequence # 389, is the ID number used by the Diebold GEMS software to identify the COR09 location. The database audit log converts the Unix date. As you can see, the
date/time stamps in the two logs match exactly.

The final certified results for COR09 showed 599 more votes than
voters. This is a serious anomaly which merits meticulous examination, which must include the audit log from machine serial number 246297 (from whence uploads reported as two different voting machines took place). An examination of the memory card data is also needed. Shelby County has refused to provide the audit log data from any of the machines and has yet to provide the memory card data.

PRECINCT: COL09

In heavily Republican COL09 precinct, location NEW SHELBY MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH, Shelby's participating voter list shows 409 polling place voters, but the certified "SOVC" results show 442 polling place votes, a 33-vote discrepancy consisting almost entirely of Republican votes.

On Aug. 4, logs revealed two voting machine uploads from Precinct
COL09; identified as machine #1 and #2, serial numbers again were
reported as identical. The next day, 33 phantom votes appeared in
COL09.
