Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

ASHLAND, NH (AP): A WEEK be­fore elec­tion day, a New Hamp­shire farm stand owner has de­cided to tally cus­tomers’ votes for pres­i­dent from an out­house-turned-fake-vot­ing booth. The win­ner: Hil­lary Clin­ton.

Chris Owens, of Ashland, built the de­vice with man­nequins of Demo­crat Clin­ton and Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump, and toi­lets to cast bal­lots.

With 721 bal­lots cast in the last month or so, the re­sults of the 2016 Out­house Vote are 413 votes for Clin­ton and 165 for Trump. There were 101 votes com­bined for Lib­er­tar­ian can­di­date Gary John­son and Green Party can­di­date Jill Stein, 40 writein votes for Demo­crat Bernie San­ders, and two votes for Pinoc­chio.

Re­gard­ing the Pinoc­chio votes, Owens said, “At least we know when they’re ly­ing.”
