The Electoral College was put in place so that candidates must appeal to a broad and diverse set of states rather than focusing only on the few U.S. cities with the highest population densities, (from outside source but Constitutionally and SCOTUS held), ie representation of ALL Americans.
The Electoral College was also, in a very real way, put in place to help perpetuate the institution of slavery. That is why, for purposes determining the number of electoral college members, slaves were counted as 3/5 of a person. To not acknowledge this is to ignore history.

Also, when the constitution was adopted, the difference in population between the most populous state (VA) and the least (DE) was about 10:1. Now, it is about 65:1. From a Constitutional perspective, this is irrelevant. However, perhaps this changes the moral calculus. At what point does a minority getting more political power than the majority become tyranny? Surely there must be some point, else why did the US colonies revolt in the first place?

No we ARE NOT any other country, WE ARE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Amen! Darn straight! But the USA is not pre-ordained by GOD to be better than other countries. (If I missed this in the Bible somewhere, please let me know.) The USA is the best not because we are perfect, but because many of us have sacrificed so much and worked so hard to grow and expand the idealistic words of our founders to apply to all our citizens--even if the work is FAR from complete.

Morally superior.......What a crapload of sh!t. My morals are mine alone and whether you consider them superior, or that of anyone else, shows you have a deep rooted fear of your own morals.
As I said in my response, "you (conservatives in general, perhaps not you personally) acted like you were morally superior." So, yeah, your morals are your own, and I explicitly exempted you from this particular criticism--it's 2nd person, plural. However, you would have to be willfully blind not to be able to find numerous examples of conservatives on this forum claiming the moral superiority of their own political positions over those of their liberal brethren.

Secondly, what do you mean by "shows you have a deep rooted fear of your own morals."? I believe I understand my own morals rather better than you, and I am, to the best of my knowledge, not afraid of them or yours or anybody else's morals. Can you give me an example of what you mean? Becuase, this statement makes no sense to me.

The Electoral College will stand as long as the Constitution says so. If you don't like it, change the Constitution. Good luck with that because it will be an exercise in futility at this time. There is not broad support to change this, there is an extreme left wing of the population that wants it, backed by main stream media which has its own CORPORATE interest in mind, not the interest of the majority of the population.
A Constitutional amendment to change the Electoral College system is, admittedly, a heavy lift. However, there is a neat work-around. The Constitution gives legislatures the sole power to select their state's slate of electors to the electoral college. Right now, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact currently has the approval of 15 state legislates and DC, representing 196 electoral votes, 74 votes shy of having a majority of the electoral college. Admittedly, that is still a long way from 270, but it's hardly a fringe movement anymore. We shall see...

Like so many liberals, you believe the Constitution and Bill of Rights is a Al A Carte menu in some restaurant where you get to select this clause or that clause, this Amendment ot that Amendment, and ignore the rest. Sorry, IT IS AN ALL OR NOTHING CONSTITUTION. You either believe in the rule of law, or you do not. YOU do not by your own statements.
No offense, but to say that "IT IS AN ALL OR NOTHING CONSTITUTION" is incredibly naïve. Neither the Constitution nor any laws, federal or state, are always 100% clear. Parts of it, and the subsequent Amendments are seemingly in contradiction with each other. Obviously, many things that play a major role in American society today did not exist--even in concept--in 1789; in the ~230 years since the Constitution has been ratified, a lot of things have changed. This is why the Supreme Court--to the lasting benefit of our nation--gave themselves the explicit power of Judicial Review in 1803 (again, that power is not in the text of the Constitution). Again, rule of law. I believe in it with every fiber of my being, but law is written by fallible people and thus needs an executive branch (with whatever biases they may have) to interpret the federal law or the Constitution, when disputes arise


And that's the way it is on this 6th day of November, in the year of our Lord, 2020 AD and if that offends
What about anything I have posted here (or anywhere else for that matter) would lead you to think I would be offended by 2020 AD? That's just kind of a cheap shot from you. You can do better.

An apparent issue with the election infrastructure in one Michigan county resulted in a Republican candidate having a tally of only two votes Wednesday.

Now, it’s been revealed that the program at fault could be in use in dozens of other counties across the state.

The discrepancy was discovered Wednesday morning in Antrim County, according to Michigan’s Interlochen Public Radio.

Triston Cole, a Republican state legislator, cited the fact that Representative Jack Bergman received only two votes, according to county tabulations.

“I can guarantee that there were 6 [Bergman votes] in my immediate family alone,” Cole told IPR.

“Since then, the Clerk’s Office has been reviewing the results and the multiple redundancies to search out any possible discrepancies. Staff is currently working with township officials and with Election Source, the company that provides the voting software programs and hardware.”

According to WPBN-TV, Guy said the vote totals on printed tabulator tapes and totals counted by the election software did not match. The printed tabulated tapes from each precinct will be counted manually as a result.

According to KXXV-TV anchor Joe Gumm, the Antrim County Clerk’s Office is now in the process of reviewing over 16,000 ballots cast in the county.

Even worse for the integrity of elections in Michigan, the program used to conduct voting in Antrim County is reportedly being used in 33 other counties across the state.
“The irregularities reported this morning are incredibly troubling, especially given how close the election results are in Michigan,” Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox told WPBN-TV.

“At this point, it is unclear whether or not these issues were caused by incompetence or corruption, but the fact that they exist is of great concern, and the Michigan Republican Party will spare no expense to expose the truth of what happened in yesterday’s election.”

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden currently leads the state by some 60,000 votes.
Michigan, and its 16 Electoral College votes, sits as a critical step towards the presidency. Some have called the race for Biden, but the Associated Press and others have not yet called the race as votes continue to be tallied.

The campaign of President Donald Trump filed suit in Michigan Wednesday afternoon to halt vote counting after his team was allegedly denied access to observe counting.

It’s unclear how far-reaching the seemingly faulty election program’s impact is.

As Election Day turns into election week, there’s no sign of this political contest ending anytime soon.

Just a friendly FYI, THERE HAS BEEN NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE OF ANY SIGNIFICANT LEVEL OF ELECTORAL FRAUD!!! ANYWHERE. IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY!

“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.”
― Joseph Stalin

Ummm. Joseph Stalin wasn't exactly the most poetic of dictators, nor, as a dictator did he need worry about elections. It is very unlikely this quotation is correct. Check out Snopes.

Major voting Tabulation errors in every State!!!!
lmfao!!!!!!!
LESTER,

I think I'm growing to appreciate your sense of humor! In that same, good-hearted, vein:

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

and yet here you are trying to spread your liberalism bullcrap around and most tend to do.

why compare America to any other country when in reality there is only one county like ours. our constitution is living and breathing document. the founding fathers set it up the way it is for a reason. if you don't like it, you're more than welcome to leave and go to one of these other great countries you speak of. let us know how much greener the grass is.

don't go away mad though, just go away.
1) "Liberalism bullcrap" Ok, that's just, like, your opinion, man!

2) "our constitution is living and breathing document." Funny how unintentionally ironic that is. Most of the conservative Justices on the Supreme Court espouse a belief in "originalism". A belief that holds, as the late Justice, Antonin Scalia, eloquently said, "It’s not a living document. It’s dead, dead, dead.”

3) I love our country. That's why I stay here and strive to make it better!!!

Umm... just realized that might have come across as me calling LESTER an idiot. Nothing could be further from the truth! it's freakin' Shakespeare. and the whole point, IMHO is that we're all idiots "full of sound and fury" but "signifying nothing".

Interesting bit of information here: I read on another forum that Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett ruled for Bush in the Bush vs Gore campaign regarding the "hanging chads". I googled it, and to me it looks like they just assisted the Bush Administration. Too tired of looking at stuff to read any further. But below is what I pulled up on google. OMG, this election is gonna' be like taking candy from a baby ! My money is still on Trump ! And I am actually really really happy the media declared Biden the winner. Because when Trump is declared the winner - the left is gonna' have a fit !!! ahahahahahahaha They will be rioting, looting for free shoes and beer, and screraming and crying ! I am beginning to question if my heart indeed has a good soul, because I am so excited to see them cry....AGAIN !!! lololololol I used to be so easy going - Now I find myself reveling in others disappointment and anger lololol.

Oh man - what a bit of information to find to close out the weekend ! I will have to literally point my finger and laugh at the ppl who voted for Crooked Sleepy Creepy Pedophile Joe is senile Biden ! And it's so much sweeter that he just had Amy Coney Barrett confirmed too ! The left is gonna scream that Trump stole the election. And to top it all off, I read that Trump was going to start doing rallies to send a message to the left !!! Chin up fellas ! This election ain't over yet, and Trump ain't goin' nowhere ! He'll stay right where he is - in the White House - Making America Great Again !!!

I agree with you CM, there are too many discrepancies and irregularities to ignore. There should never have been mail-in ballots and the practice needs to be banned nationally. Most countries ban them due to the ease of fraud associated with them.

Since the margins are so slim there needs to be a recount with reps from both parties present along with the DOJ. Those responsible for any form of fraud need to be tried for treason then sentenced to death as a deterrent for future potential fraudsters.

There's also this to consider, the election results have yet to be certified and I can't see how that could even take place if any legal challenges exist.

The lefty liberals are absolutely going to lose their minds and burn down the cities they occupy, leaving them all jobless, homeless, penniless in so confirming what they really are....a WORTHLESS waist of skin, sperm and egg.

You mentioned the sense of losing your soul, it is not you who is losing your soul it is a temporary and treatable symptom of constant exposure to liberalism. Liberalism the disease is a false ideology that seeks to defy and defile the laws of nature as if believing it could ever win. Nature always wins those who defy nature always lose. Liberalism if allowed to manifest completely will only ensure the extinction of itself. The downfall is how it would affect the rest of mankind.

All the money spent on research and development for a Covid-19 vaccine should be redirected on a liberalism vaccine. Just imagine how much better the world would be without liberalism in any form.

For what it's worth ...

My wife and I received mail in ballots Unsolicited in the mail a few weeks before the election. We never asked or opted in to receive them.

I destroyed them immediately in the diamond cut shredder because as far as I knew it could be a malicious actor sending fraudulent documents. We never requested them.

A week later I received a letter from my state secretary of state saying that if you received a mail in ballot and still want to vote in person that's OK - just bring your mail in ballot.

My wife and I both voted in person on election day. The polling place only asked for our street Number and first three letters of our last name. They then asked if our first names were X and Y. I produced my drivers license and they refused to look at it - said they didn't have the reader and her eyes were bad. Whether I had received or even already sent in a mail in ballot was never asked.

I was then given a choice to vote electronically on a touch screen or on paper (which is fed into an electronic reader). I chose paper because last year the touch screen was off half an inch, where what you touched wasn't necessarily what got tallied. I had to re- select several times in 2016 to get it right. So with the paper ballot I filled out last week they had us use black sharpie markers. On a two sided paper ballot where one side's ink tally bleeds right through the other side. The tallies didn't line up so that they overlapped but it was a poorly thought out system. Unless the ink bleed is a security feature.

Bunch of clowns

@FN47,

My GF has a P.O. box for business matters, on Nov. 4th she went to collect her mail, a woman collecting her own mail discovered five (5) absentee ballots in her P.O. box none of which were addressed to her. And here I thought Florida had finally figured this whole voting out.

With recent arrests of USPS employees it makes you wonder just how DEEP is the deep state? Every time I have had to go to the P.O. I find the employees to be in a state of perpetual unhappiness and stupidity. Even my postal carriers are never in a good mood and constantly mix up addresses.

Good report FN47. I'm a Nevada resident, and everyone here received an unsolicited mail in ballot. Funny though - One of my friends didn't get one - wonder where his went ?! I voted about a week early in person on an electronic ballot. The machine seemed to work perfectly and everything was properly aligned. I chose the option to review my votes to be sure too, and pressed the option to have it printed - The printout stays in the machine, but I could physically see it scrolling and printing. I wanted some kind of paper record. I also wanted to vote on election day, but my office has a way of coming up with all kinds of wants and needs that made me worry about being able to achieve voting on the official election day. So - played it safe and voted early. I was never asked about my mail in ballot either - There are hundreds of thousands out there ripe for fraud.

I'm going to add this, and some may take it as racially inappropriate, and I just don't care - because I mean nothing inappropriate about it... Every single person working where I voted was African American. I found that odd because the area I voted in was predominantly white, followed by Asian, then Hispanic, and then Black being the least predominant in that area. It shouldn't matter, but since about 80% of the Black vote goes to Democrats - Quite honestly, I'm wondering if some of the volunteers signed up to do whatever they could to defraud the vote. I would think the volunteers at the voting location would more accurately reflect the population of people who lived in that area. I find that to be the case in stores, fast food places, and pretty much all other types of business. As bad as it sounds, it's still a thought that crosses my mind. On a funny note, I asked for TWO "I voted" stickers when I exited. I told them I was going to tell everyone I voted twice lol.

I'd also like to note, Las Vegas has a history of voter fraud - proven and unaddressed. Last Presidential Election - Trump / Clinton - We had reports of bus loads of Hispanics being brought in from California to vote. I can't recall for certain - but it seems I remember $50.00 of payment to vote was mentioned. But local talk radio reported they were put in rooms at the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino for an overnight stay. Two people claiming they were bus drivers for these events were interviewed on the radio, and spilled the beans and gave pretty specific details regarding this. While listeners were outraged, all we ever heard was that it would be investigated. Of course we never heard anything in regards to it as time went on.

To add more to this voter fraud thing here in Vegas... I frequent our Government Building which has numerous local government entities in it. I frequent the Recorders Office. It is also a major Early Voting Center. I used to vote there. I switched locations though, because for the last four years, on their multiple televisions in the "Wait for your number to be called area" , all they have played on those televisions is MSNBC News. I filled out at least 15 comment cards over the last four years, and finally received a phone call from The Clark County Recorder - Debbie Conway. I stated my case, and concerns regarding that being a major Early Voting Location that was playing what most considered biased news. I was very professional while speaking with her. I requested a non political channel be presented to the public. Debbie Conway just happens to be African American. She also seemed to take great offense to being asked to stop playing MSNBC. She was rather rude, and made it clear she supported how they utilized the televisions they had open to the public. It was "Their Office".

And to respond to SeaMac - I agree with your sentiments. Liberalism is a sickness. For those who just live a normal life - They go to work, come home, take care of the kids, the nightly meal - watch a half hour of local news, perhaps some world news - and go to bed. Most people don't read alternative news sources, and they just believe what the main stream media tells them. It shouldn't be such a chore to find out the truth. Therefore, there is a large population who believe anyone who has an opinion outside of what they consider to be the norm, is just radical. People are wising up, but there are many who still believe what it being spewed out of mainstream fake news media. I would assume the people in lower income areas aren't always armed with a computer and internet services, and their world of information is more limited. Thus, minority groups are most often in these lower income areas, which is most likely why we have such a hard time to get people of color to come on over to the more conservative side of politics. The best solution I have is to continue to reach out and educate those with limited sources. Well that, and completely rise up and destroy the left. The latter being the most effective I'm sure lol.

Another book long post. I'm so sorry - I try, but still just seem to ramble on. I am not a master of the art of brevity. Carry on folks ! : )

Social worker charged with 134 counts of voter fraud in Texas for allegedly registering ineligible voters
Social worker faces 10 years in prison if convicted

PETER MUHLY/AFP via Getty Images
https://www.theblaze.com/u/carlosgarcia

A social worker has been charged with 134 counts of voter fraud after investigators found that she allegedly submitted voter registration applications for residents who were ineligible to vote.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said that his office's Election Fraud Unit investigated the charges against Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker at the Mexia State Supported Living Center.
Paxton said in a statement that Brunner submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents of the State Supported Living Center. But because the people being cared for in the facility have intellectual and developmental disabilities, they were unable to give consent for the voter registration.
"Under Texas law, only a parent, spouse or child who is a qualified voter of the county may act as an agent in registering a person to vote, after being appointed to do so by that person," explained Paxton.
"None of the SSLC patients gave effective consent to be registered, and a number of them have been declared totally mentally incapacitated by a court, thereby making them ineligible to vote in Texas," he added.


Brunner faces 10 years in prison if convicted for the charges.
"I strongly commend the Limestone County District Attorney's Office, Sheriff's Office, and Elections Office, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General for their outstanding work on this case and their commitment to ensuring a free and fair Presidential election in the face of unprecedented voter fraud," Paxton continued.
"Registering citizens to vote or to obtain mail ballots without their consent is illegal. It is particularly offensive when individuals purport to be champions for disability rights, when in reality they are abusing our most vulnerable citizens in order to gain access to their ballots and amplify their own political voice," he added.
"My office is prepared to assist any Texas county in combating this insidious form of fraud," he concluded.

Lawsuit: Out-of-State Vehicles Brought Tens of Thousands of Unsealed Ballots to Michigan, All for Dems
A major new allegation of voter fraud has been raised in Michigan, where a lawsuit filed by the Great Lakes Justice Center on behalf of two poll challengers says multiple levels of improper conduct took place on orders from election officials.

The allegations are aimed at election officials from Detroit and Wayne County, according to a release from the center, and are based on affidavits of named individuals who said they witnessed misconduct.

“This type of widespread fraud in the counting and processing of voter ballots cannot be allowed to stand. Michigan citizens are entitled to know that their elections are conducted in a fair and legal manner and that every legal vote is properly counted,” senior counsel David A. Kallman said in a statement.
“Such rampant fraud cannot be undone. We ask the Court to enjoin the certification of this fraudulent election, void the election, and order a new vote in Wayne County.”

Michigan, along with Pennsylvania, are two major states targeted by President Donald Trump’s campaign, which has alleged widespread voter fraud linked to mail-in ballots cast there.
The lawsuit, filed by poll challengers Cheryl A. Costantino and Edward P. McCall Jr., cite what the legal filing calls “numerous issues of fraud and misconduct.”

The lawsuit seeks a temporary restraining order that would prohibit officials from certifying the vote until the charges made in the lawsuit can be investigated.
“Defendants systematically processed and counted ballots from voters whose name failed to appear in either the Qualified Voter File (QVF) or in the supplemental sheets. When a voter’s name could not be found, the election worker assigned the ballot to a random name already in the QVF to a person who had not voted,” the complaint reads.

“Defendants instructed election workers to not verify signatures on absentee ballots, to backdate absentee ballots, and to process such ballots regardless of their validity,” the complaint went on, adding another allegation that election workers were told “to process ballots that appeared after the election deadline and to falsely report that those ballots had been received prior to November 3, 2020 deadline.”

“After election officials announced the last absentee ballots had been received, another batch of unsecured and unsealed ballots, without envelopes, arrived in trays at the TCF Center. There were tens of thousands of these absentee ballots, and apparently every ballot was counted and attributed only to Democratic candidates,” the complaint read.

“Unsecured ballots arrived at the TCF Center loading garage, not in sealed ballot boxes, without any chain of custody, and without envelopes.”

The complaint alleged that some ballots arrived in vehicles with out-of-state license plates, and that “t was observed that all of these new ballots were cast for Joe Biden.”

The complaint went on to claim that election workers “systematically used false information to process ballots, such as using incorrect or false birthdays. Many times, the election workers inserted new names into the QVF after the election and recorded these new voters as having a birthdate of 1/1/1900.”

Oversight was denied, according to the complaint.

“Defendant election officials and workers refused to record challenges to their processes and removed challengers from the site if they politely voiced a challenge. After poll challengers started discovering the fraud taking place at the TCF Center, Defendant election officials and workers locked credentialed challengers out of the counting room so they could not observe the process, during which time tens of thousands of ballots were processed,” the complaint read.

Judicial Watch finds 1.8 million 'ghost voters' in 29 states, warns of 'dirty elections'
Judicial Watch has released a comparison study of Census Bureau population statistics and state voter registration data to reveal a notable disparity. The watch dog group is now warning of potential voter fraud and “dirty” voter rolls.

The study found that 352 U.S. counties in 29 states managed to have 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens.

“In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters. The study found eight states showing state-wide registration rates exceeding 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont,” reported Tom Fitton, president of the watchdog group.

Some of that excess ran as high as 187% in Texas, 177% in New Mexico and 171% in South Dakota.

“The new study of excess — or ghost voters — highlights the recklessness of mailing blindly ballots and ballot applications to voter registration lists. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections,” Mr. Fitton noted.

Major Vote Count 'Error' Discovered, Flips Seat from Dem to GOP
There seem to be a lot of computer tabulation glitches — and other counting errors — going around this election cycle, and they always work against Republicans.

According to the connecticut mirror. Republican state Rep. Craig Fishbein has been declared the winner over his Democratic challenger Jim Jinks after an error was discovered.

“The Wallingford town clerk, Barbara Thompson, said Tuesday her office discovered that no votes had been recorded in the state election reporting system from the Yalesville Elementary School, one of nine polling places in the 90th District of Cheshire and Wallingford,” the paper reported.
“I can’t answer if it was a clerical error or a computer error in the elections management system,” Thompson said. “All I know is we caught it yesterday and amended it.”

The state’s election reporting system now shows Fishbein leading Jinks, 7,058 to 7,037 votes.

Because the race is so close, there will be recount.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Wednesday there will be hand recount of the presidential election results in the Peach State.

Further, election officials in Antrim County, Michigan, blamed Dominion Voting Systems software on a glitch that falsely determined that former Vice President Joe Biden had defeated President Donald Trump in the county by more than 3,000 votes.
After the error was discovered, the updated numbers showed that Trump won by nearly 2,500 votes.

So far all the “glitches” have worked against Republicans, which at least gives the appearance that foul play may in fact be involved.

Georgia GOP chairman: Why did absentee ballot rejection rate drastically drop in 2020 when a million more of them were cast than in 2018?

'Did the massive increase in ballots overwhelm the verification process?' the chairman asked
As the state of Georgia braces for a hand recount of votes from the disputed 2020 presidential election, Georgia's Republican chairman has a question:
"In 2018, when 230,000 absentee ballots were cast, 3.5% were rejected for signature mismatches or other reasons," David Shafer noted Thursday night on Twitter. "In 2020, when more than 1.2 million absentee ballots were cast, the rejection rate fell to 0.3%. Did the massive increase in ballots overwhelm the verification process?"
Shafer's numbers indicate the rejection rate dropped a whopping 2.2% this year compared to 2018. You remember 2018, don't you? When there was no coronavirus making it too dangerous to vote in person, as many Democratic officials claimed this year — although mass protests and riots were just fine.

Given Shafer's numbers, let's say the absentee ballot rejection rate in Georgia remained at 3.5% this year. That would mean about 42,000 of the 1.2 million cast in 2020 would have been rejected. But with a 2020 rejection rate of just 0.3%, the number of rejected absentee ballots instead was around 3,600, using Shafer's numbers.

ccording to NBC News, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden led President Donald Trump in Georgia on Friday afternoon by a vote count of 2,472,152 to 2,458,002 — a difference of just 14,150 votes.

Seems an expectation of about 42,000 rejected ballots this year would make quite the difference in Georgia's presidential vote outcome — even half that number theoretically would move Trump past Biden at present.

Now what?
Shafer and U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Georgia) on Tuesday raised several concerns with Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, also a Republican, about the recount. Trump chose Collins to lead his Georgia recount team.

In the pair's letter, a number of requests were made based on concerns about training and directives for the hand count — and one notes that the recount process doesn't include a review of signatures on absentee ballot applications and ballot envelopes to confirm their validity.

"This raises serous concerns as to whether the counties properly conducted signature verification and/or other scrutiny of absentee ballots," the letter says. "In fact it presents the issue of whether some counties conducted any scrutiny at all."

The letter asks Raffensperger to make sure that signature verification happens in the recount: "We do not believe it is possible to certify the results of the 2020 General Election without conducting this investigation and analysis."

In addition:

  • They also have concerns that there can be only one review for every 10 audit teams, which they said makes it impossible to monitor the recount in real time.
  • The letter also said it's improper to certify the election results by 5 p.m. Friday when the audit and recount won't be completed by that time.
  • Also they requested that the start of the recount, which was to commence Friday, be delayed until Monday so that interested parties can have sufficient notice of the audit locations.
  • Finally they said parameters for ballot security were not explained with any detail.
Raffensperger's office on Friday didn't immediately reply to TheBlaze's request for comment regarding if he will consider any of the requests in the letter from Shafer and Collins.

Flashback: Democrats Warned of Voting Machines 'Switching' Votes Last Year
Here is a key paragraph from the letter, which is still available via Senator Warren’s Senate website.

In 2018 alone “voters in South Carolina [were] reporting machines that switched their votes after they’d inputted them, scanners [were] rejecting paper ballots in Missouri, and busted machines [were] causing long lines in Indiana.”14 In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in “nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states.”15 And, just this year, after the Democratic candidate’s electronic tally showed he received an improbable 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in a Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county’s Republican Chairwoman said,”[n]othing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong. That’s a problem.”16 These problems threaten the integrity of our elections and demonstrate the importance of election systems that are strong, durable, and not vulnerable to attack.
