I now believe ROAR is just a scam. Last time when Eddie was up for region rep, I personally knew mor than a handful of people that voted for Eddie and sent their forms in, then ROAR posted the votes counted was far less then the amount of people voted for Eddie that I know of.

I agree with Peter, or the other scenario is they opened my ballot and saw it was checked for Eddie and they threw it in the trash. I would seriously like ROAR to post exactly who voted and who did they vote for!

To me, the guys that would support Eddie on this thread (and openly said they will vote) alone already outnumbered the final votes counted. Something fishy...

As a paid ROAR member, is there any way to find out if my vote was counted? Who do we need to contact to find out?

"I will" and I did" are two very different things.

Agree. Just hope the guys that said "I will" actually "did" vote.

I don't think its fair to insinuate that there is funny business going on just because the supposed popular nominee lost. With that being said I don't understand why not have any reputable accounting co. do the counts and results? That way everyone is protected from rumors. Roar is already lossing credibility and you would think that an independent co. would be hired at least for the integrity of the voting.

Votes are counted by ROAR Administrator Fred. This has been stated countless times. (This is also where your votes were mailed to.)

Rick Hohwart's dad, Fred Hohwart counts the votes. If you ever have the bolas to say something like this to him in person be sure I am there. It would be cool to see a 60 year old man knock you on your a$$.

Saying Fred Hohwart did something dishonest is about the same as saying Mother Theresa sole candy from kids.

The voter apathy is a far more significant statement than the results.
