Fair Elections/Voter Fraud   The Serious You: How Current Events Affect You

First of all, it's a CNN piece posted on Yahoo News, so there is a credibility issue due to the source.

Showtalk said...

A wave of departures by election officials in key states risks adding new stress to the nation's election system ahead of next year's presidential contest, voting rights groups and several state election chiefs warn.

The part in red above "in key states"... is the most interesting to me.

Re-read another way, "key state election officials leave in droves". It's basically saying the same thing. Now whether one wants to question whether "a wave of departures" and "leave in droves" is the same, but that's just the semantics. You could swap out "leaves in droves" and use this instead: "key state election officials depart in a big wave" if it makes one feel any better.

Why are they mainly in key states? Well, the article does mention others, but they only seem to go into the numbers of election officials per the number of counties for the larger key states. 

Another thing about this article is that those who are leaving were all on the election board during the 2020 election cycle... and we all know what happened there... election fraud galore... and mainly from the swing key states... the ones they are leaving from.

So, the big question is... why are they leaving? Age might be one factor, health issues might be another, likewise, their inability to redo what they did in 2020 again in 2024 due to new rules/regulations put into place since 2020 is probably the biggest reason! Or perhaps, they're afraid that they will get caught in 2024 and thus bow out early. Now those last two are quite obvious reasons to leave.

This statement makes it sound like it might have to do with election worker abuse. >>>“Our election systems have been horribly neglected for decades and now our election workers are being actively abused by people,” Penniman said. “It’s time for this to stop.”<<< But is that really the case? How many election worker abuse articles have you read since 2019? 

Here is one: This grandmother has overseen dozens of elections in her city. And after 2020, she carries a gun | CNN Politics but this is from CNN and the article claims the 2020 elections were fair!!! So, the credibility of the report, not to mention the source "CNN" help show the bias of that article. And also note, CNN uses a gun for self defense of a woman fearing for her life... LOL I thought CNN was anti-gun. Why are they using her pro-gun stance here? Because it fits their narrative.

Here is one more from Jun 2021: DOJ to launch task force to address rise in threats against election officials | CNN Politics Oops... this is CNN again, but this is also mentioning the DOJ launching a task force to address rise in threats against election officials... yeah... that same DOJ who also launched a task force to go after parents at school board meetings as domestic terrorists! (* CHUCKLE *) We know the DOJ is up to no good. They were attempting to prevent the people looking into election fraud in 2020 from moving their case forward. 

All said, I find the article a bit drab and lacking any teeth in their story. In fact, as it's CNN, believing the exact opposite is probably closer to the truth.

FWIW

Or maybe they are leaving because they participated in fraud and don’t want to get caught.

Yep... that is the biggest possibility.

I would love to see the numbers of all of those who left by party affiliation... now that would be really revealing.

It would probably show something like: Why are 98% or 99% of those leaving registered Democrats?

Thus I would love to see that breakdown by party affiliation!

They claim it’s because Republicans have scared them off but in reality every past complaint from poll workers who were harassed or threatened are Republican poll watchers who were chased off.  My friend worked as a poll watcher only her job was to check the voter rolls every hour, see who hadn’t voted and call them to remind them.  She got chased away twice by some very scary looking people. There were a lot of complaints about it.  They had some large, scary people who didn’t live in the precinct.  In the past, the poll workers were always neighbors but they changed that.  I took in two absentee ballots and they refused to   them. They said they had to be mailed.  I said then they will arrive late.  So I insisted they take them but they would not place them in the box. A few years later the state set up a system to follow ballots so you can get an alert when your mail in ballot arrives and when it’s been counted.  This was before 2020 elections.

Hello... hello... hello... do you want me to list the 27,319 times that they've claimed that in the next 300 posts?

Bottom line: Believe the exact opposite of what they claim and you will be right 98.9 ~ 99.5% of the time.

As for the rest of your post, it wasn't a one off... similar happened all over the US in just about all 50 states. 

It all boils down to voter intimidation (by the left), not voter suppression (as the left claim of the right). Asking for a voter ID is NOT racist as they claim either.

And I won't even bother going into all the details of all the voter fraud that I've already mentioned in hundreds of posts in this thread either as they are proof of themselves that voter fraud is a major problem in our elections.

We agree on that. You’ve already written enough posts to prove it.

Texas Secretary of State Releases Election Audit Findings, And They Are Deeply Troubling

By Rachel M. Emmanuel, The Western Journal
Oct. 20, 2023 2:00 pm

Recent preliminary findings from a state audit of November 2022 Harris County, Texas, election are highlighting the vital importance of upholding the integrity of our democratic processes.
 
Texas Secretary of State Jane Nelson released preliminary findings of the audit stating, “Harris County clearly had multiple failures conducting the election and violated election law for estimating needed ballot paper,” according to KPRC-TV.
 
“Mistakes like these led to a poorly executed election which left many Harris County residents frustrated and may have prevented them from voting. It is important to talk about these issues now in order to address them before the 2024 election cycle,” Nelson added.
 
Nelson’s statement highlighted a range of issues uncovered during the audit. These problems include discrepancies in voter registration data, a failure to deliver essential supplies to polling locations, equipment malfunctions, and incomplete paperwork.
 
According to a post by Texas state Senator Paul Bettencourt on X, “County Government’s [election audit] left 3 million sheets of ballot paper in the warehouse and didn’t get enough ballot paper to the polls for voters to vote.”

At least 38 polling sites also experienced an absence of voter check-ins for an hour or more, according to Nelson’s report.
 
The findings showed over 9,000 more voters than reported in the statewide voter registration system. Additionally, the audit disclosed that almost 3,600 mail-in ballots were sent to voters but were not properly reported to the state authorities.
 
Procedures for the provision of ballot paper were also not properly followed and judges and clerks were improperly trained, leading to paperwork being improperly filled and equipment issues.

According to The Texas Tribune, the mishandling of the 2022 election in Harris County led to legislative changes, including the dissolution of the elections administration office, with election duties now split between the county clerk and tax assessor.
 
Harris County is suing the state to reverse this law. Texas Secretary of State Jane Nelson said that a repetition of such issues within the system is “unacceptable.”
 
Elections are the cornerstone of any democratic society. They serve as the mechanism through which the will of the people is expressed, leaders are chosen, and accountability is ensured. To maintain the health of our democracy, we must be able to trust in the integrity of this process. This is where election audits come into play.
 
Just as businesses undergo audits to ensure that financial records are accurate and transparent, elections should be audited to verify that the results accurately reflect the will of the voters.
 
Trust in the system relies on scrutinizing the process and having confidence in its fairness.
 
Harris County was one of just four randomly selected counties audited in accordance with a law passed in 2021, according to KPRC-TV.
 
How many other counties across the nation may have similar issues that have yet to come to light?
 
The number of issues uncovered in a limited audit of a handful of counties in one state demonstrates the importance of comp

Kentucky, which is a red state, just reelected liberal Andy Bashear. Why?

Sounds like Kentucky needs to do an entire State audit like Texas too!

I suspect voter fraud and a full audit will show that.

North Carolina Republicans override Dem governor's vetoes of two election integrity bills

The Democratic National Committee and the North Carolina Democratic Party have both filed a lawsuit regarding one of the bills.
Liz Harrington: RNC needs to step up and protect voters from election fraud
Liz Harrington, National Spokeswoman for President Donald J. Trump, says the Republican National Convention needs to take an active stand against Democrat-led attempts to defraud the 2024 election. “It’s the number one issue,” says Harrington. “We can’t fix anything else unless we have a free and fair vote.”

North Carolina Republicans in the state legislature overrode Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s vetoes on two election integrity bills, passing the bills into law.
 
On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled North Carolina state legislature overrode Cooper’s vetoes on Senate Bills 747 and 749, The Carolina Journal reported. The House overrode the vetoes of both bills 72-44 and the Senate followed suit, 30-19.
 
SB 747 requires absentee ballots to be received by Election Day and bans Zuckbucks — the injection of private money into public election administration. SB 749 splits the appointments of the state Board of Elections between the state legislature majority and minority party leaders. Previously, the governor would make the appointments on the recommendations of the two largest state parties and choose his own tie-breaker.
 
In August, when Cooper vetoed the bills, he claimed that Republicans were being racist with passing SB 747, saying, “If you are black or brown, Republicans really don’t want you to vote.”
 
House Speaker Tim Moore said Cooper was “mischaracterizing a bill that simply strengthens election integrity in North Carolina.”
 
Regarding SB 749, Cooper claimed that Republicans were trying “to seize control of the state Board of Elections.”
 
Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action, said in a statement on Tuesday regarding SB 747, “North Carolina law now bans ‘Zuckbucks’—the private funding of election administration—making it the 26th state to restrict the corrosive infusion of private donations into election administration. But the same group behind the first round of private funding has already created ‘Zuckbucks 2.0,’ the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, and two North Carolina counties have already joined. This proves the fight for election integrity is never over.”
 
The Democratic National Committee and the North Carolina Democratic Party have both filed a lawsuit regarding SB 747 claiming that it is “designed to undermine the right to vote in North Carolina,” The Hill reported.
 
One of the complaints made in the lawsuit is the Election Day deadline for absentee ballots.
 
Down Home North Carolina, a nonprofit represented by Elias Law Group and focused on “Building multiracial power for working & poor folks in [North Carolina] small towns & rural places,” has also filed a lawsuit regarding SB 747.
 
Moore responded to litigation of the laws, saying, “We expect litigation with so many things that we do, it’s just the nature of where we are right now. But we feel like the legislation we passed is A.) the correct public policy and B.) that it’s on solid legal ground.”
