They can’t have a do-over because it’s impossible to go back in time and undo everything. All they can do is change the system so it works in the future.

Nullify their State's votes.

But I seriously doubt they'll do that.

I think it's just one of Vos's gimmicks so that he can win the primaries and then turn around and do nothing about it after he wins the primaries. He only has a very small lead over his closest competitor.

Missouri Governor Parsons Signs House Bill (HB) 1878 – Requires Voter ID – Eliminates Drop Boxes

By Joe Hoft
Published June 30, 2022 at 7:00pm

Governor Parsons from Missouri today signed an election bill in an effort to make elections more secure. 
 
Today, during a signing ceremony at the State Capitol, Governor Mike Parson signed five pieces of legislation into law, including House Bill (HB) 1878, which modifies Missouri’s election laws to strengthen election processes and voter confidence.
 
“We are happy to be joined by Representative John Simmons and Senator Sandy Crawford to sign HB 1878 into law,” Governor Parson said. “In 2020 and years prior, Missouri has conducted free, fair, and secure elections, but with changing technologies and new emerging threats, we want to ensure they remain that way. HB 1878 strengthens our election processes and gives Missourians confidence that their voices are being accurately and securely recorded at the ballot box.”
 
HB 1878 – Modifies provisions regarding election law:
 
Requires all registered voters in Missouri to provide a photo ID to vote and repeals the use of mail-in ballots while allowing certain absentee ballots, strengthening the integrity of each citizen’s vote.
 
Additionally, HB 1878 makes several other modifications to state statute:
 
Clarifies when voter rolls can be audited by the Secretary of State;
Allows no excuse absentee voting in person at the local election authority starting two weeks prior to the election;
 
Prohibits the use of ballot drop boxes for absentee ballots;
Makes the paper ballot the official ballot and prohibits the use of electronic vote counting machines after January 1, 2024;
 
Prevents local election authorities from accepting private donations, with limited exceptions;
 
Requires all electronic voting machines to be “air gapped” or not directly connected to the internet; and
 
Adds several other provisions related to elections.
 
“Our election system is a cornerstone of our Republic,” State Representative John Simmons said. “Faith and confidence in the process is a solemn responsibility by voters themselves and those conducting elections.  A photo ID  requirement is but one common sense measure the vast majority of Missourians support.”
 
“I believe when HB 1878 becomes law Missourians can be assured that their votes will be counted correctly and there will be many safeguards in place to prevent voter fraud,” State Senator Sandy Crawford said.
 
This is a step forward in Missouri.

Liz Cheney is out but if the Democrats can get their constituents to vote for a RINO and displace a Conservative, they get what they want. Another possible vote in the Senate for their side.

That's why the GOP needs to get a strong incumbent who can easily beat any RINO the Democrats are opting for.

Several NYC Election Sites Had 'No Republican Ballots' During Last Week's Primary

BY TYLER DURDEN
MONDAY, JUL 04, 2022 - 06:44 PM

Last week's primary voting in New York City was a complete debacle - as the city's Board of Elections botched everything from polling locations opening late because of 'lost keys,' to missing equipment, to unannounced relocations of voting sites, to a lack of Republican ballots across at least three Big Apple election sites.
 
"We showed up to the poll site in Brooklyn, we showed up at 5 a.m. … and there was no key," Spencer Mestel, a freelance writer, told the New York Post on Tuesday afternoon, adding that he saw poll workers turn away an elderly woman with a walker because they couldn't get in.
 
"The police officer on site didn’t have a key, the Board of Elections didn’t give [the site coordinator] a key, I watched her call the Board of Election multiple times … [but] no one helped us," added the journalist who has served as a NYC election worker for the past decade.
 
The building was eventually unlocked at 7:30 a.m. by the building's superintendent - more than 90 minutes after voters should have been able to start casting ballots.
 
Meanwhile, the Board of Elections failed to deliver equipment to one south Brooklyn location.
 
And at PS 22 in Crown Heights, New Yorkers weren’t able to vote before work, because of a “technical emergency!” according to a photo shared on Twitter by activist and writer Stephen Lurie. -NY Post
 
Also disturbing -  polling locations had been changed without the BOE informing anyone.
 
The BOE's response? Election day had gone "very smoothly" and voters had been notified of site changes.
 
"If a human error occurs, it’s regretful and, in large measure, we correct immediately," said BOE deputy executive director, Vinny Ignizio. "All told, we’ll run eight elections this year and this primary election has run very smoothly."
 
Speaking of human error - at least three NYC election sites told voters they had no Republican ballots, according to the Post.
 
One voter, Ed Gavin, 62, arrived at his Bronx polling site in Spuyten Duyvil around 8:15 a.m. to cast his vote for GOP gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino but after checking in with a poll worker, he was handed a Democratic ballot instead, he said. -NYP
 
"My party never came up, my political preferences were never discussed … I opened the sleeve and I saw the names of Tom Suozzi, Kathy Hochul and Jumaane Williams. These were all Democrats for governor," said Gavin, a retired Department of Correction deputy warden. "I flipped it over because I thought maybe the Republicans were on the back but there were no Republicans."
 
"They told me ‘we don’t have any Republican ballots,'" he added. "I said to the gentleman, ‘that is very concerning.’"
 
The Post verified the lack of Republican ballots at the polling site Gavin visited.
 
"We couldn’t find the ballots earlier, but we have them now," said a poll worker.
 
Gavin was pissed..
 
"This is the most important gubernatorial election of my lifetime because crime is on the ballot, bail reform is on the ballot, criminal justice is on the ballot," he said, adding "[Former Gov. Andrew] Cuomo essentially ruined this state … with the state of the city right now, we need a Republican in power."
 
After he reported the problem to the BoE, a rep said they would "correct it immediately."
 
Republican strategist Candice Giove had the same thing happen in Bushwick, Brooklyn around 11 a.m.
 
"I was handed a Democratic ballot and I realized when I opened the folder and I saw Kathy Hochul’s name," she told the Post, adding that she told the poll worker 'I'm not a Democrat, I'm a Republican,' to which the poll worker replied, "We don't have any Republican ballots."
 
After they went back and looked, workers found a stack of Republican ballots "shrink wrapped under a bunch" of other things - after which she was able to cast her vote.
 
The list goes on:
 
Harlem resident Eric Larsen, a registered Republican, told The Post an election worker provided him with a Democratic Primary ballot, before falsely insisting a Republican Primary wasn’t being held Tuesday. 
 
A different staffer then apologized, acknowledged the existence of the GOP primary, and scrambled to find a Republican ballot in a cabinet. 
 
“I know that Central Harlem is predominantly Democratic, but I found it hard to believe that a polling location even in a mostly Democratic location wouldn’t have had enough Republican ballots by the middle of the day on primary day,” said Larsen, who works in finance. “I did eventually get one … [but] they gave me a hard time.” -NY Post
 
In short, levels of 'human error' are once again off the charts.
