BREAKING: 37,500 Affidavits Delivered to Gwinnett County, Georgia Election Board – 20,000 Challenging the 2020 Election Which Never Should Have Been Certified in Georgia

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/08/breaking-37500-affidavits-delivered-gwinnett-county-georgia-election-board-20000-challenging-2020-election-results-enough/



Per a press release out this morning, more than 37,000 affidavits were delivered to the Gwinnett Country, Georgia Election Board challenging voter rolls and the handling of the 2020 Election.  These affidavits included 20,000 from the 2020 Election.

These affidavits prove that the 2020 Election never should have been certified in Georgia.

Per a press release from moments ago:

A stunning total of 37,500 affidavits are delivered to the Gwinnett County Board of Elections office in challenge of the voter rolls and handling of the 2020 Election. These affidavits include 20,000 challenges to actual votes that were certified just after the 2020 election. The submitted affidavits only include Gwinnett County vote challenges. Still, the number far exceeds the Presidential spread for the entire state of Georgia and confirms the 2020 election should not have been certified!

Ten months ago, a team of patriotic Georgia residents came together to research election processes to determine if the repetitive narrative regarding safe, secure and honest elections in Georgia represented the truth. The results of the investigation proved otherwise. The team found bloated voter rolls and voter fraud. Gwinnett is the second largest county by population in Georgia and the team expects to deliver approximately 18,000+ additional affidavits once research is completed. This small team of volunteers worked diligently analyzing Secretary of State voter rolls, voter history files, and 2020 voter absentee file data. To ensure accuracy in sworn affidavits, the team verified challenges through analysis of SoS data, NCOA results, door-to-door canvassing, property tax records, obituaries, etc.


Details of the group’s work are included in the press release attached below:

https://www.scribd.com/document/589884928/Press-Release-Gwinnett-Co#download&from_embed

In the 2020 Election, the state of Georgia did not announce a winner in the Presidential race until the Friday after Election Day (from The Steal: Volume II – The Impossible Occurs):

Georgia’s results were certified, giving Joe Biden the win by 12,000 votes.  He finally overtook President Trump on Friday, November 6th, three days after the election. Despite Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger claiming on the morning of November 4th that there weren’t enough ballots outstanding to overturn President Trump’s lead, the impossible occurred.

Watch this 12 minute video to see what probably happened on Election Day in Fulton County. The county and the state certified there were 59,143 votes. The evidence suggests only 21,843.  See why.

Be careful they don't take you out too.

13th Circuit Court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer released the audit report
A Michigan judge has released the bombshell report on the audit of Dominion Voting Systems, revealing that the machines and their software were “designed” to “create systemic fraud.”
The report covers the forensic audit of Dominion’s machines in Michigan’s Antrim County — which received national attention after it was discovered that 6,000 votes for President Donald Trump were “flipped” to Democrat Joe Biden due to an “error.”
13th Circuit Court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer ordered the report’s protective order to be lifted on Monday night, allowing the details of the audit to be unsealed and released to the public. The data firm that conducted the forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems determined that the machines and software in Michigan showed that they were designed to create fraud and influence election results, the report reveals.


“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” Russell Ramsland Jr., co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group, said in a preliminary report. “The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors.

The judge did NOT rule this.  Only ordered the audit released.  Making shit up like this discredits the cause.  There definitely were fuck fuck games played in Antrim county And the dominion systems are imo bullshit and need to be banned 100%

All with matching signatures and a documented trail of going through the mail system both ways right? Wait...no signatures? Wait the ballots never entered the mail stream? Huh.

AZ Corporation Commissioner Jim O’Connor Sends Letter Demanding ALL County Supervisors, Recorders, Election Directors, And Sheriffs “Immediately Cease Use Of ALL Electronic Voting Machines”

Arizona Corporation Commissioner Jim O’Connor sent a letter Tuesday to all Arizona County Supervisors, Recorders, Election Directors, and Sheriffs, demanding they immediately cease the use of voting machines in the upcoming 2022 General Election.

“I spent two entire days listening to testimony given publicly at ‘The Moment of Truth Summit,’ with reports from all 50 states including Arizona, which had teams of presenters giving updates to the election maladministration conducted nationwide,” O’Connor stated in his letter after outlining the Commission’s investigative authority and expressing his desire for the cessation of tabulating votes using corrupted machines.

O’Connor told The Gateway Pundit that the machine vulnerabilities must be fixed. “our country as we know it is over before the end of the calendar year if we don’t stop this stuff, because we will not have people serving in office who had been elected by We the People of all parties. That will not be the case. They’ll be selected.”

This letter comes just days after The Gateway Pundit reported that Trump-Endorsed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and Trump-Endorsed candidate for Secretary of State Mark Finchem’s lawsuit to ban black box voting machines in Arizona’s upcoming election was shot down in court.

In a July 21 hearing, cyber security expert Clay Parikh testified on behalf of the plaintiffs in this lawsuit. Parikh is the lead information systems security officer for the ground missile defense system for Northrop Grumman.  Prior to that, he worked for Lockheed Martin and Leidos through their merger as the deputy cyber manager for the Army Corps of Engineers.

From 2008 to 2017, Parikh also worked as a security tester, and security subject matter expert for Wyle Laboratories and Pro V&V.  Parikh claims to have tested hundreds of voting systems, including the Dominion and ES&S voting machines, throughout his career as part of the certification process for the EAC and Secretaries of State.  He holds a CISSP certification (Certified Information System Security Professional), as well as certification as an ethical hacker and a certified hacking forensics investigator.



Additionally, The Gateway Pundit reported on a Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency report that revealed massive security vulnerabilities and the potential to install malicious code in Dominion voting machines that were used in Arizona and Georgia.

According to Ballotpedia, The 5-member Arizona Corporation Commission is the “quasi-executive regulatory agency in the Arizona state government. The commission is Arizona’s state regulatory body for non-municipal utility companies, including energy, heat, trash, water, and communications firms. It also oversees the incorporation of businesses, securities regulation, and railroad/pipeline safety.”

Commissioner O’Connor told The Gateway Pundit that he is raising this issue as a statewide elected official and calling it to the attention of all public officials. “There were over 1,400,000 Arizonans who put me in office, and I’m serving there using a lot of common sense and doing the best I can for my fellow Arizonans without respect to party,” said O’Connor.

“I have seen enough evidence over the last almost two years to convince me beyond a shadow of a doubt that we voters cannot be assured of a sound, real, true result because of the vulnerability of the machines,” he continued. “The attacks are happening all over the place.”

When asked how he would respond to idiotic excuses by elected officials who say that “hand counts are impossible,” O’Connor stated, “We’ve done hand counts for a couple of 100 years. So I would say there’s ample evidence that your statement is erroneous.”

The full letter from  Jim O’Connor is below.

To my fellow elected officials:

As you all may recall your Corporation Commission is responsible for the regulation of all Securities Broker Dealers and Registered Investment Advisory firms doing business in our State, in addition to our other duties. We routinely audit these businesses assuring the public of these companies’ compliance with our regulations designed to protect the public.

On a regular basis we find bad actors operating in our state causing harm to our state’s investors. We perform examinations and investigations, hold hearings, determine guilt, impose sanctions, levy fines, and then refer criminal activity to our Attorney General’s office for prosecution. Your commissioners act in a judicial capacity in this function of government.

I site that judicial role as the basis for my strongest admonition and encouragement for all of our Counties to immediately cease use of all electronic voting machines for this November’s General Election and beyond. These machines have been shown to be unreliable and cannot be secured, as evidenced by the recent primary election in El Paso County, CO which conducted a hand recount of 100% of the paper ballots revealing a 62% error rate using their black box tabulation machines.

Recently, I spent two entire days listening to testimony given publicly at “The Moment of Truth Summit”, with reports from all 50 states including Arizona, which had teams of presenters giving updates to the election maladministration conducted nationwide.

The majority of presenters were well credentialed cyber security experts with decades of experience in election forensics. I am convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt, no one can make a legitimate claim that our election machines and equipment are exempt from a cyber-attack creating an election outcome that cannot be trusted.

In your capacities as County Supervisors under ARS 16-442 you have permissive authority from the Secretary of State in that you MAY chose to use electronic voting machines. There is NO REQUIRED authority mandating you to do so. Each County may chose for themselves.

For the sake of every legal voter without regard to political party, I herein urge each of you in your respective positions to act immediately to secure our November election by use of paper ballots processed by hand count. You each have the solemn duty to uphold your oath of office to defend our Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. That duty call is now.

May God empower each of you to do the right thing and renew your love of our State and our Nation.


Contact your county elected officials to demand compliance with this request.

Trump-Endorsed Arizona Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake also gave the following statement to The Gateway Pundit. The Democrats are expected to do everything in their power to rig and steal another election from MAGA Republicans.

Leaders from both political parties have raised concerns over the use of electronic voting machines and their vulnerability to cyber attacks. I applaud Jim O’Connor for his work to rid Arizona of easily corruptible voting machines. Even if we do the hard work to correct all of the issues with our elections—as long as we continue to allow our sacred vote to be counted by electronic voting machines with corruptible software that is easily manipulated and whose components are manufactured by our adversaries then we will never truly have honest elections. The voting machines simply must go.

Recently, I spent two entire days listening to testimony given publicly at “The Moment of Truth Summit”, with reports from all 50 states including Arizona, which had teams of presenters giving updates to the election maladministration conducted nationwide.

The majority of presenters were well credentialed cyber security experts with decades of experience in election forensics. I am convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt, no one can make a legitimate claim that our election machines and equipment are exempt from a cyber-attack creating an election outcome that cannot be trusted.

In your capacities as County Supervisors under ARS 16-442 you have permissive authority from the Secretary of State in that you MAY chose to use electronic voting machines. There is NO REQUIRED authority mandating you to do so. Each County may chose for themselves.

For the sake of every legal voter without regard to political party, I herein urge each of you in your respective positions to act immediately to secure our November election by use of paper ballots processed by hand count. You each have the solemn duty to uphold your oath of office to defend our Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. That duty call is now.

May God empower each of you to do the right thing and renew your love of our State and our Nation.


Contact your county elected officials to demand compliance with this request.

Trump-Endorsed Arizona Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake also gave the following statement to The Gateway Pundit. The Democrats are expected to do everything in their power to rig and steal another election from MAGA Republicans.

Leaders from both political parties have raised concerns over the use of electronic voting machines and their vulnerability to cyber attacks. I applaud Jim O’Connor for his work to rid Arizona of easily corruptible voting machines. Even if we do the hard work to correct all of the issues with our elections—as long as we continue to allow our sacred vote to be counted by electronic voting machines with corruptible software that is easily manipulated and whose components are manufactured by our adversaries then we will never truly have honest elections. The voting machines simply must go.

So he completely doesn't understand the El Paso County situation and he's a Pillow Man fan.

What an idiot.  



So attack the messenger and not the message?  Are you questioning whether the guy in the testimony was able to break into the machines quickly?  Any proof he was lying?

Vulnerability testing in an environment controlled by the tester and real-world exploitation are two different things.

Where's the proof that any of the voting systems in use during the 2020 election were maliciously manipulated by external actors?

The burden of proof is on the person making the accusation, not the accused to prove that it didn't happen. You are asking someone to prove a negative.  That's the most basic fallacy of all of the fallacies.

AZ Corporation Commissioner Jim O’Connor Sends Letter Demanding ALL County Supervisors, Recorders, Election Directors, And Sheriffs “Immediately Cease Use Of ALL Electronic Voting Machines”

Arizona Corporation Commissioner Jim O’Connor sent a letter Tuesday to all Arizona County Supervisors, Recorders, Election Directors, and Sheriffs, demanding they immediately cease the use of voting machines in the upcoming 2022 General Election.

“I spent two entire days listening to testimony given publicly at ‘The Moment of Truth Summit,’ with reports from all 50 states including Arizona, which had teams of presenters giving updates to the election maladministration conducted nationwide,” O’Connor stated in his letter after outlining the Commission’s investigative authority and expressing his desire for the cessation of tabulating votes using corrupted machines.

O’Connor told The Gateway Pundit that the machine vulnerabilities must be fixed. “our country as we know it is over before the end of the calendar year if we don’t stop this stuff, because we will not have people serving in office who had been elected by We the People of all parties. That will not be the case. They’ll be selected.”

This letter comes just days after The Gateway Pundit reported that Trump-Endorsed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and Trump-Endorsed candidate for Secretary of State Mark Finchem’s lawsuit to ban black box voting machines in Arizona’s upcoming election was shot down in court.

In a July 21 hearing, cyber security expert Clay Parikh testified on behalf of the plaintiffs in this lawsuit. Parikh is the lead information systems security officer for the ground missile defense system for Northrop Grumman.  Prior to that, he worked for Lockheed Martin and Leidos through their merger as the deputy cyber manager for the Army Corps of Engineers.

From 2008 to 2017, Parikh also worked as a security tester, and security subject matter expert for Wyle Laboratories and Pro V&V.  Parikh claims to have tested hundreds of voting systems, including the Dominion and ES&S voting machines, throughout his career as part of the certification process for the EAC and Secretaries of State.  He holds a CISSP certification (Certified Information System Security Professional), as well as certification as an ethical hacker and a certified hacking forensics investigator.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/Clay-Parikh.jpg

Additionally, The Gateway Pundit reported on a Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency report that revealed massive security vulnerabilities and the potential to install malicious code in Dominion voting machines that were used in Arizona and Georgia.

According to Ballotpedia, The 5-member Arizona Corporation Commission is the “quasi-executive regulatory agency in the Arizona state government. The commission is Arizona’s state regulatory body for non-municipal utility companies, including energy, heat, trash, water, and communications firms. It also oversees the incorporation of businesses, securities regulation, and railroad/pipeline safety.”

Commissioner O’Connor told The Gateway Pundit that he is raising this issue as a statewide elected official and calling it to the attention of all public officials. “There were over 1,400,000 Arizonans who put me in office, and I’m serving there using a lot of common sense and doing the best I can for my fellow Arizonans without respect to party,” said O’Connor.

“I have seen enough evidence over the last almost two years to convince me beyond a shadow of a doubt that we voters cannot be assured of a sound, real, true result because of the vulnerability of the machines,” he continued. “The attacks are happening all over the place.”

When asked how he would respond to idiotic excuses by elected officials who say that “hand counts are impossible,” O’Connor stated, “We’ve done hand counts for a couple of 100 years. So I would say there’s ample evidence that your statement is erroneous.”

The full letter from  Jim O’Connor is below.

To my fellow elected officials:

As you all may recall your Corporation Commission is responsible for the regulation of all Securities Broker Dealers and Registered Investment Advisory firms doing business in our State, in addition to our other duties. We routinely audit these businesses assuring the public of these companies’ compliance with our regulations designed to protect the public.

On a regular basis we find bad actors operating in our state causing harm to our state’s investors. We perform examinations and investigations, hold hearings, determine guilt, impose sanctions, levy fines, and then refer criminal activity to our Attorney General’s office for prosecution. Your commissioners act in a judicial capacity in this function of government.

I site that judicial role as the basis for my strongest admonition and encouragement for all of our Counties to immediately cease use of all electronic voting machines for this November’s General Election and beyond. These machines have been shown to be unreliable and cannot be secured, as evidenced by the recent primary election in El Paso County, CO which conducted a hand recount of 100% of the paper ballots revealing a 62% error rate using their black box tabulation machines.

AMERICA FIRST LEGAL SUES PENNSYLVANIA ELECTION BOARD OVER ILLEGAL DROP BOX OPERATION

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal (AFL) and Wally Zimolong filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania on behalf of registered voters in Lehigh County against the Lehigh County Board of Elections and its Board members to compel their immediate compliance with Pennsylvania’s election laws in connection with ballot drop boxes in Lehigh County.

The lawsuit  seeks to ensure that the defendant Board and its members follow state law following an investigation by the Lehigh County District Attorney, who confirmed that invalid and void ballots had been deposited in drop boxes in Lehigh County in the 2021 general election.

The Lehigh County District Attorney’s investigation found:


  • Hundreds of void ballots had been deposited into drop boxes and were subsequently counted by the board;

  • A county detective confirmed 186 instances where more than one ballot was dropped into a dropbox by an individual voter;

  • 3,695 ballots were placed into the dropboxes but surveillance video only showed 2,756 persons dropping ballots into the boxes.



Despite these clear findings, the Lehigh County Election Board declined to put safeguards in place to prevent future election law violations, resulting in the District Attorney, himself, taking action to ensure proper drop box usage during the 2022 primary election.

With the November 2022 general election fast approaching, AFL filed today’s suit to ensure that the Election Board fulfills its mandatory duty to comply with PA law so that only validly cast ballots placed in drop boxes are counted, and void or unlawful ballots are neither commingled nor counted. AFL seeks the court’s immediate action to enjoin the Election Board from accepting, counting, or canvassing any ballots that contravene the lawful use of drop boxes or to receive invalid ballots from drop boxes in Lehigh County and commingling these with validly cast ballots and to compel the County to put into place the following measures:


  • Drop boxes must be placed inside a building and accessible only Monday-Friday during normal business hours;

  • Drop boxes must be physically monitored in-person to assure that the person delivering the ballot is only delivering his or her own ballot or is an authorized agent of a disabled voter with the proper affidavit signed by the voter and verified by the election board.

  • Lehigh County Election Board shall otherwise fulfill its statutory duties to ensure that void and invalid ballots are not commingled and counted in all future elections.



The American people must be able to have confidence in our election system, and the integrity of our elections must not be compromised. AFL will vigorously pursue this case to restore election integrity in Lehigh County and will continue to do everything possible to ensure elections across the United States, whether at the state or federal level, are safe and secure.

Statement from America First Legal President Stephen Miller:

“As a civil rights organization, America First Legal is committed to fighting for free, fair and secure elections in America. Election integrity is the cornerstone of a healthy Democracy. The illegal drop box scheme in Lehigh County. Pennsylvania violates state law—undermining the franchise for lawful citizen voters. AFL is seeking emergency action to compel the full enforcement of state law,” said Stephen Miller.

Lots of hotlinks on the article page.

Have Chinese Spies Infiltrated American Elections?

[All Chinese translated with Google & DeepL]

"After the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, with the continuous development of political and economic reform, all kinds of election activities will become more and more a norm.

We have a senior professional team that has been engaged in election service and management for a long time, and we have the experience of overseas election internship and exchange.

We can provide the most professional election consulting service and election activity solutions for all places and levels of Party committees, NPCs, CPPCCs, trade unions, overseas Chinese Federation, women's federations, Communist Youth League; villages, towns, streets, communities and units that have the need for election and evaluation of priorities.”


On a now-deleted website for the Chinese election company, Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co., the statement above was written by Eugene Yu, the Founder & CEO of Konnech Inc., a U.S. election company based out of East Lansing, Michigan.

Yu, who graduated from Zhejiang University in 1982 before receiving his MBA from Wake Forest University in 1988, founded Michigan’s Konnech Inc. on March 20, 2002, registering the domain “www.konnech.com” one month later.

On November 29, 2005, the Michigan CEO whose Chinese name is Jianwei Yu (于建伟), founded his Chinese election company Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co. in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China.

On February 25, 2006, Yu registered the website “www.yu-lian.cn” for his Chinese election company to his American election company’s email address “[email protected]”.

In a 2013 archived version of his Chinese website, Yu praised the vision of the former Chinese President “Comrade Jiang Zemin” as he wrote in Chinese:

“After a lot of practice and many years of scientific and technological investment, in line with the principle of "political tasks first and economic benefits of enterprises second", our company has perfected and formed the whole set of election management theory and software tools in line with China's national conditions.”

“We hope to ride on the spring breeze of political reform and provide you with election consulting services and election campaign management in line with China's national conditions based on our democratic election campaigns with Chinese characteristics.”






On a website page labeled “Success Stories”, Yu listed in Chinese; “Election Management Solutions, Detroit”, “Election Volunteer Management System”, “Election District Point Management System”, “Election Warehouse Management System”, and lastly, “US Overseas Voter Election Management System”, a program in which he managed voting for U.S. citizens and military service members residing overseas.



Yu, who previously redirected traffic from his Chinese election company’s website “www.yu-lian.cn” to his American election company’s website “www.konnech.com”, even prominently featured the same banner image on top of both sites.







My investigation into Eugene Yu and Konnech Inc. began two weeks ago after Catherine Englebrecht of TrueTheVote and Gregg Phillips of OPSEC organized an event on Saturday, August 13th in Arizona called “the Pit”.

During that event, they revealed that they had been part of a year-long investigation into Konnech with federal law enforcement after discovering a Konnech server’s IP address switched locations between Zhejiang, China, and Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Independent tech journalist, Cognitive Carbon, who attended the Arizona event wrote:

“What they found was shocking: they found data that included personal details of nearly 1.8 million US poll workers. Details like their names, phone numbers, addresses, etc. Even the names of family members: things that might routinely be collected when you hire someone and issue them a paycheck.

But they also reportedly found rich details about where election machines were located, including floorplans of buildings used in elections. Nominally, this information would be of use by the election agencies, because the application they were using helped them track their election machine inventory.

But none of this should have been left out in the open for just anyone to see; and it sure as hell shouldn’t have been done in China."


In my own investigation, I was able to use Linkedin profiles, Facebook posts, domain registrations, internet archives, company patents, and Chinese search engines among other open-source tools to string together a disturbing connection between Konnech Inc. and two Chinese election companies — Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co., Ltd. and Jinhua Hongzheng Technology Co., Ltd.

Subsequently, I wrote about the connections between these companies and their two founders — Eugene Yu and Lin Yu — in three articles and numerous social media posts over the last two weeks:

https://kanekoa.substack.com/p/us-election-software-company-previously?utm_source=substack&utm_campaign=post_embed&utm_medium=web

https://kanekoa.substack.com/p/the-curious-case-of-jinhua-konnech?utm_source=substack&utm_campaign=post_embed&utm_medium=web

https://kanekoa.substack.com/p/us-election-company-previously-registered?utm_source=substack&utm_campaign=post_embed&utm_medium=web

These articles document how Konnech Inc. has been hiring Chinese coders for their “branch in Jinhua, Zhejiang” since at least 2005, how the American company built a “communication platform” for the Confucius Institute in 2006, how Australian Parliament Members complained about Konnech’s Chinese coders during their 2020 election, and how one of the Chinese companies named Hongzheng Technology — after being founded by Lin Yu on April 13, 2015, and registered to Eugene Yu’s Michigan website on July 31, 2015 — has been building voting technology for China's National People's Congress in partnership with Lenovo, Huawei, China Unicom, China Telecom, and China Mobile.






Yesterday, an independent journalist named, Digger Sleuth — who published this monumental article on August 16th which laid the foundation for my Chinese research — discovered the archived version of Eugene Yu’s “www.yu-lian.cn”.

Incredibly, in the copyright featured at the bottom, Eugene Yu mixed an American site he registered "reddatesoft.com" with Lin Yu’s Chinese company “Jinhua Red Date Software Co.” on his Chinese election company’s website "www.yu-lian.cn" which was registered to his American election company’s email address “[email protected]”.

Perfectly linking a voting technology company currently used in Australia, Canada, and the United States — through Konnech Inc., Eugene Yu, Yulian Network Co., Lin Yu, Red Date Software Co., and Hongzheng Technology Co. — to a Chinese Communist Party election company partnered with China’s largest telecom giants in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China.



To summarize, Eugene Yu registered the Yulian Network business under his Chinese name Jianwei Yu.

The Hongzheng Technology business, an election company partnered with Lenovo, Huawei, China Unicom, China Mobile, China Telecom, and China’s National People’s Congress was registered to Lin Yu.

The websites for Yulian Network and Hongzheng Technology were both registered to Eugene Yu’s Konnech email addresses, "[email protected]" and “[email protected]”.

Lin Yu worked as a supervisor for Eugene Yu at Yulian Network from 2014 until 2019.

Furthermore, Lin Yu’s Jinhua Red Date Software Co. was prominently featured on the footer of Eugene Yu’s Chinese election website “www.yu-lian.cn”.

On “www.yu-lian.cn”, the Michigan CEO openly praised “Comrade Jiang Zemin” and the “Chinese Communist Party” stating that his company’s principle is “political tasks first and economic benefits of enterprises second” before listing “Election Management Solutions, Detroit” and “US Overseas Voters” as his "Success Stories".

Incredibly, despite all of this information sitting on the internet, Eugene Yu still currently provides voting technology at the heart of elections to Australia, Canada, and the United States.

What’s more, according to Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips, the FBI’s Washington D.C. office is now attempting to cover up this national security crisis, rather than investigating why Chinese nationals partnered with Chinese telecom giants are programming U.S. election software.

Judge: Wisconsin clerks can't fill in missing info on absentee envelopes

MADISON (AP) — A Wisconsin judge on Wednesday ruled that state law does not allow election clerks to fill in missing information on witness certification envelopes that contain absentee ballots, delivering a victory to Republicans nine weeks before the election in the battleground state.

The lawsuit, backed by the GOP-controlled Legislature, is the latest move by Republicans to tighten restrictions on absentee voting in the swing state where Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and Republican Sen. Ron Johnson are on the ballot in November.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Aprahamian on Wednesday granted GOP motions to immediately block the practice, known as ballot curing. The case is expected to ultimately go to the conservative-controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court, which in July ruled that absentee ballot drop boxes located outside of clerk offices are illegal.

Local election officials do not have the authority under the law to modify absentee ballot certificates, nor does the state elections commission have the right to order that they take that action, the judge said. He accused the elections commission of “stubborn and unjustified adherence to its guidance” that was contrary to state law.

An attorney for Democrats said he planned to file a motion to stay the ruling pending appeal. A hearing was set for Tuesday.

The judge agreed with Republicans that 2016 Wisconsin Elections Commission guidance issued to the state’s 1,800-plus local election clerks saying that they can cure ballot certificates without contacting the voter is illegal. Clerks only address problems on the witness certificate, which doubles as an envelope, and not the ballot itself. Republicans did not contest the practice until after Donald Trump’s narrow loss in 2020, when nearly 1.4 million voters cast absentee ballots and COVID-19 vaccines weren't available yet.

“This isn’t a case about counting votes,” said George Burnett, attorney for the Republican Party of Waukesha County, which brought the lawsuit. “This is a case about stopping the issuance of guidance that violates Wisconsin law.”

The Waukesha County Democratic Party, which is defending the practice, argues that Republicans are trying to create confusion and uncertainty just weeks before early voting begins. All absentee ballots in Wisconsin must be sent to voters by Sept. 22. The guidance has been in effect for more than 20 statewide elections, and Democrats argue it is lawful and necessary to comply with the federal Civil Rights Act.

The issue was previously raised by Trump after he narrowly lost the 2020 election. The Wisconsin Supreme Court did not directly address it in upholding Trump’s loss, but four of the seven justices suggested that the guidance allowing clerks to cure absentee ballot certificates was reasonable.

Republicans have been trying for months to undo the guidance from the elections commission. In January, a GOP-led legislative committee told the commission to suspend its guidance or submit a proposed rule to clarify it. When the commission submitted its emergency rule, Republican lawmakers blocked it. The commission’s position was that the underlying guidance remains in effect, but that judge declared it invalid and ordered the commission to notify clerks that it can't be followed.

The lawsuit was filed by the Republican Party of Waukesha County and three voters, and the Republican-led Legislature intervened. The Waukesha County Democratic Party and the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin joined the commission in defending the guidance.

Both sides made their arguments in court before the judge ruled Wednesday.

Wisconsin law requires absentee ballots to be submitted in an envelope that contains a witness signature and the address of that person and the voter. The elections commission guidance said clerks could complete missing information without contacting the voter “if clerks are reasonably able to discern any missing information from outside sources.” For example, the clerk could fill in a missing address for the voter or witness if they knew the person or could verify the address on their own.

The judge agreed with Republicans that state law only allows clerks to return the ballot to the voter to correct it or to not count it.

The Legislative Audit Bureau last year reviewed nearly 15,000 absentee ballot envelopes from the 2020 election across 29 municipalities and found that 1,022, or about 7%, were missing parts of witness addresses. Only 15 ballots, or 0.1%, had no witness address. Auditors found that clerks had corrected addresses on 66 envelopes, or 0.4% of the sample.

SHOCKING VIDEO! Via MC4EI and Gateway Pundit — 13 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage of Ballot Trafficking in Detroit, Michigan – Including Postal Workers!

This is Part 2 in a Series on the Investigation and Findings from the Detroit Drop Box Surveillance Videos of the November 2020 General Election

Election Integrity investigators in Detroit, Michigan captured never-before-seen footage of DOZENS of ballot traffickers dumping HUNDREDS of ballots into ballot drop boxes during the 2020 US presidential election.

The exclusive drop-box footage from the 2020 presidential election was obtained by The Gateway Pundit and Attorney John Burns.

The MC4EI team in Michigan spent hours scouring through the thousands of hours of security camera footage to put together this explosive 13-minute video.

Special thanks to Patty McMurray and 100 Percent Fed Up for her help in coordinating this effort.

The MC4EI team captured dozens of instances of ballot trafficking in the 2020 Detroit Election.

The fraud was captured on camera.

Republican Secretary of State Candidate Kristina Karamo and Attorney General candidate Matt DePerno were RIGHT!

This footage changes everything!

Today’s report is Part 2 in a Series on the Investigation and Findings from the Detroit Drop Box Surveillance Videos of the November 2020 General Election

Part 1 is here: EXCLUSIVE: Part 1 – Surveillance Videos Show Alleged Ballot Traffickers Take Photos of Their Ballots in Detroit, MI

* * * * * * * * * *
Guest Post by:
Becky Behrends, M.D., Vice President of Research for MC4EI
Joe Brandis, President of Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity (MC4EI.com)

The Michigan Bureau of Elections issued an Election Officials Manual in October 2020.

According to this manual, the persons who may return an absentee ballot are limited to:

the voter
a member of the voter’s immediate family who has been asked to return the ballot
a person residing in the voter’s household who has been asked to return the ballot
a person whose job normally includes the handling of mail (but only during the course of his or employment)
an authorized election official
MCL 168.764a

Ballot traffickers generally do not deposit a large number of ballots per drop box. With video surveillance, they are aware that this would be too obvious to those looking for violation of election laws. There were exceptions to this in what was noted at the Detroit drop boxes in 2020.

What follows is a sample list of the various multiple ballot drops which was observed by Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity (MC4EI.com), the team which reviewed and analyzed thousands of hours of surveillance videos of the Detroit drop boxes from the November 2020 general election. This list corresponds to various clips you will see in the ensuing video below.

Of note is that when MC4EI investigators initially started watching these videos, they realized they were underestimating the number of multiple ballots a person might be holding. What they assumed might be 3 ballots often turned into many more as they saw a person deposit them incrementally into a drop box. Also, it was observed that the surveillance cameras were sometimes placed at angles which precluded being able to clearly see how many ballots were deposited as the dropbox itself obstructed what was being dropped. Or, the surveillance camera was too far away to clearly see what was being deposited. For those legislators or individuals who think that surveillance cameras are sufficient to provide drop box security, MC4EI would disagree. Our experience proves otherwise.

It was also observed that individuals often wore masks as they approached the drop boxes and took them off when they got back into their cars. Even when there were no people around to worry about viral transmission.

Here is the list of clips of drop boxes you will be viewing in the video below:

Clip #1- Heilmann Recreation Center. A woman deposits a stack of about 50 ballots while another woman appears to be videotaping her. Both are wearing face masks.
Clip #2- Horatio Williams Foundation. A person in a vehicle has a stack of ballots which he takes a phone picture of and then hands it off to another man, who does not appear to be an election official, outside his car who holds the stack up next to the drop box and then carries the ballots off. Sound secure to you?
Clip #3- Liberty Temple (a stand alone drop box, not associated with a satellite voting center ie SVC). A woman wearing a Mickey Mouse t-shirt deposits what initially appeared to be 3 ballots, but actually turned out to be about 6.
Clip #4- Liberty Temple. A person made 11 motions in dropping ballots into the drop box with what appeared to be multiple ballots with each motion. The estimated amount dropped would be 30 to 40 ballots.
Clip #5- Coleman A. Young Municipal Center. A person had about 5 unsealed ballots which were deposited all at once after sealing them.
Clip #6- Farwell Recreation Center. A minimum of 7 or 8 ballots was deposited.
Clip #7- Palmer Community House. A woman who appeared to be a health care worker deposited at least 6 or more ballots.
Clip #8- Farwell Recreation Center. A woman deposited about 6 ballots.
Clip #9- Heilmann Recreation Center. A man deposited at least 5 ballots.
Clip #10-Kemeny Recreation Center. A woman had a stack of multiple ballots which she deposited all at once.
Clip #11- Farwell Recreation Center. A man deposits 6 ballots from a vehicle.
Clip #12- Liberty Temple. A woman deposits a stack of ballots.
Clip #13- Pistons Performance Center. A man with a phone deposits 5 ballots.
Clip #14- North Rosedale Park. A woman with a mask deposits 6 ballots.
Clip #15- Balduck Park. A person on the passenger side of a red truck takes a pic of the drop box and center. A vehicle then drives up with what appears to be a female health care worker who deposits 8 ballots.
Clip #16- Balduck Park. A woman appearing to be a health care worker deposits a minimum of 10 ballots.
Clip #17- Balduck Park. The same woman as noted in Clip#16 deposited 12 ballots.
Clip #18- Liberty Temple. A female postal worker drops a few ballots.
Clip #19- Liberty Temple. The same female postal person as in Clip #18 deposits multiple ballots.
Clip #20- Liberty Temple. The same female postal worker as in Clip #18 arrives in a private vehicle and deposits at least 10 ballots.
Clip #21- Male postal worker deposits about 10 ballots.
Clip #22 -Liberty Temple. Same male postal worker as seen in Clip#21 deposits multiple ballots.
If someone other than the voter is delivering their absentee ballot, it must be delivered to the clerk of the respective city or township office.  Not to a drop box.  There are no specific rules in Michigan regarding nursing home absentee voting.  Michigan does not have special voting deputies for nursing homes as does Wisconsin.  Therefore, the general rules apply as noted above.

As seen in the video, postal workers made visits to the drop boxes. MC4EI discussed this with postal service employees in the metro-Detroit area.  None of them has ever delivered absentee ballots to drop boxes, but only to clerks offices.

Multiple ballots being deposited raises the question- is this from residents of one household?  Potentially 10 to 50 voters from one household?  Or does it represent something which is illegal?

Multiple ballot drops have been seen in other states as well, such as Pennsylvania in which a woman was seen dumping a stack of ballots in the off year 2021 election in Montgomery County.  In Pennsylvania, if a voter designates another person to submit their ballot, they are not permitted to be dropped off at a drop box but only at the clerks office.  In fact, hundreds of people were seen on surveillance videos as stuffing multiple ballots into drop boxes during the Pennsylvania 2021 election.

How can elections be considered secure with such questionable and potentially illegal behavior occurring at drop boxes, even despite surveillance cameras being present?  And with no accountability or follow-up by law enforcement for investigation or prosecution?  The only sane conclusion one can come to is that drop boxes should be eliminated.

Thanks for picking up the mantle, goose.

I love the news narrative in the WI story.  "Following the longstanding election laws" equals "tightening election laws."

Clowns.

Clinton-Appointed Federal Judge Bars Arizona Officials From Enforcing New Law To Remove Dead Voters, Nonresidents, And Non-Citizens From Voter Rolls

A Clinton-appointed federal Judge blocked a new Arizona election integrity law from being enforced in the upcoming 2022 General Election.

HB2247 is meant to clean the voter rolls and remove registrants who are registered in another state and no longer live in Arizona. The new law would add a statement on voter registration forms, specifying that if a registrant permanently moves to another state after registering in this state, their registration will be canceled.

It would also direct the county recorder to cancel a voter registration when they confirm that the registered person is dead, that the person is not an Arizona resident or resident of that County, or that they are not a citizen of the United States.

The Gateway Pundit previously discovered during our investigation into the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) that the largest U.S. Counties removed only ZERO to TWO ineligible voters from their voter rolls in the last four years.

ERIC, initially funded by the Soros Open Society Foundation, is essentially a left-wing voter registration drive disguised as a voter roll clean-up system and is used in Arizona and 30 other states.

State Rep. Jake Hoffman, the bill’s main sponsor, told The Gateway Pundit, “Democrats have stooped to a new level of shamefulness and depravity with their latest round of lies about Arizona’s common sense laws to ensure that our elections are accessible, secure, and trustworthy.”

Epoch Times reported,

Arizona officials cannot enforce a new election bill in the upcoming midterm elections, according to a federal judge.

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and other officials shall not “take any action to implement or enforce H.B. 2243 in a manner that would remove any voter’s eligibility to vote in the 2022 general election or disqualify any otherwise-valid ballot on the basis of H.B. 2243,” U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, a Clinton appointee, said in the Sept. 8 order.

The officials and the coalition, which sued over the bill in August, agreed that “the provisions of H.B. 2243 should not operate in a manner that would prevent any voter from (1) voting in the upcoming November 2022 general election or (2) having their vote be counted.” Hobbs and Brnovich also decided that the changes to the state election code shouldn’t take effect until Jan. 1, 2023, because one of the laws the bill is amending is not effective itself until then.


Last month’s filing from Arizona Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander for Equity claims that this bill targets “only certain groups… naturalized voters and voters of color,” which is completely untrue. This law will affect all invalid or illegal voter registrations regardless of the person’s race or naturalization status.

“Democrats’ cries of racism are laughable on their face and serve only to shine a spotlight on the Democrat Party’s long history of institutionalized racism and repeated attempts to disenfranchise millions of Americans throughout the last century and a half,” added Hoffman.

He continued, “make no mistake about it, ensuring clean voter rolls and protecting the sanctity of Arizonans’ votes by prohibiting non-citizens and non-residents from casting illegal ballots benefits every single legal voter regardless of race, gender, income, and party.”

A similar attempt by Democrats to radically change election law by expanding drop boxes, mail-in voting, automatic voter registration, giving voter registration to all regardless of their citizenship status, and banning post-election audits was recently shot down by the Arizona Supreme Court.

The Gateway Pundit also reported extensively on the Arizona 2020 election audit, which discovered massive election law violations and hundreds of thousands of illegal or fraudulent ballots in the 2020 Presidential Election.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/09/2000mules-texas-style-newly-discovered-police-body-cam-footage-implicates-tarrant-co-texas-democrat-officials-ballot-harvesting/

2000Mules Texas Style: Newly Discovered Police Body Cam Footage Implicates Top Tarrant Co. Texas Democrat Officials in Ballot Harvesting

Newly discovered police body cam footage in Forth worth, TX obtained by The Gateway Pundit shows that the claims made in True the Vote and Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000Mules were not exclusive to the “swing states”.  Or the 2020 election.  This footage implicates two top Democrat leaders in the county’s party:  former Tarrant Co. Democratic Party (TCDP) chairwoman and now candidate for Tarrant Co Judge Deborah Peoples and the director at The Peoples Group, Stuart Clegg.  Clegg was also the executive director for the TCDP and Peoples was a member of the Tarrant County election board and commission responsible for overseeing the integrity of county elections.

You may remember Tarrant County from the 2020 election:  it was a red county for 56 years until the COVID lockdowns and a massive push for the fraud-ridden universal mail-in ballot system.  The Gateway Pundit reported on this back in November 2020.  Tarrant County hired Heider Garcia, who obtained his engineering degree in Venezuela and worked for Smartmatic for 12 years, where he was an executive level employee.  In 2010, Garcia was called “a son of a bitch” by Philippine Congressman Teodoro Locsin after “unforeseen” circumstances led to huge election discrepancies in the country.

But this story isn’t about him, however, it is about an accusation of a long time fraud perpetrated on the people in the jurisdiction he supervises.  In October 2018, four women were arrested in a voter fraud ring in Fort Worth.  According to the Star-Telegram:

“Members of an organized voter fraud ring have been arrested and indicted on charges they targeted and, in one case stole, the votes of elderly voters on Fort Worth’s north side…

These people allegedly were paid to target older voters on the north side ‘in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots and then harvest those ballots for specific candidates in 2016,’ the statement read.”


The Star-Telegram published a story about the man, Charles Jackson, in our footage back in 2018.  He was arrested and indicted for “providing false information on a voting application.”  As it turns out, he did a lot more than that, and according to his own admissions, it was at the behest of Stuart Clegg and Deborah Peoples.

The following footage was obtained through open records request in Fort Worth.  It shows a conversation between Jackson and the officer that he had a conversation with previously in 2016.  This engagement on January 3, 2020 was not an interrogation and Jackson was not being accused of a crime or detained for a crime.  In fact, Jackson himself brings up their previous interaction and begins to tell him about the ballot harvesting.  This is about as casual a conversation one could have with a police officer, so there is no concern that he was potentially trying to avoid any possible negative actions taken against him.

Two years prior to the above engagement, Jackson was originally arrested for one count of “providing false information on a voting application” in Tarrant County.  He was brought to an “investigation room” with “so many people in there.”  He said he was “scared as hell”.  Apparently, Clegg was also there and when he saw the Star-Telegram showed up, Clegg bonded Jackson out “real quick”.

Why is a campaign manager for the former county democratic party chair and candidate for Tarrant Co Judge bailing out a homeless man that was indicted on “a single charge of providing false information on a voting application”?

Jackson took a plea deal in April 2019 and was sentenced to 10 days time served despite facing 10 years with “enhancement” due to previous felonies.  It is unclear if his listed attorney, Gerard Kardonsky, was a public defender at the time or, if not, who funded his attorney.  According to the Ft Worth Star-Telegram, attorneys in the case could not comment after the hearing due to a gag
issue previously issued by State District Judge Scott Wisch.  Jackson mentions a gag order as well in the footage:

Stuart told me not to talk to them (Star-Telegram) and bonded me out and I got put on a gag order.”

During his conversation with the officer, Jackson claims that Peoples’ office “hasn’t lost a vote in 11 years…Every time somebody campaigns [with them] they win.  11 years.”

For the first time in 56 years, Tarrant County, Texas went “blue” in the 2020 election, the “safest, most secure election ever” as touted by the mockingbird media.  While Peoples was serving as the TCDP Chairwoman, she was also one of the individuals who would have been tasked with ensuring these elections were “secure”.  Now she is running for the highest elected office in Tarrant County: Tarrant County Judge.

Pro-Trump Arizona SecState nominee rips deal to delay cleaning voter rolls until after election

Pro-Trump Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, the GOP nominee for secretary of state, the top statewide elections official, is blasting a court-approved deal to postpone removing nonresidents from state voter rolls until after the high-stakes midterm elections in November.

"This is a usurpation of the authority of the legislative branch of government," said Finchem.

In a move reminiscent of the 2020 Georgia consent decree before the presidential election, incumbent Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich reached an agreement on Monday with a left-leaning nonprofit to put off cleaning the state’s voter rolls until 2023.

In 2020, Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger agreed with state and national Democrats to a consent decree that changed state election rules on signature matching and ballot curing. Former President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the Georgia consent decree, claiming it was unconstitutional and, thus, invalidated the 2020 presidential election and the subsequent Senate runoff elections in the state.

In the lead-up to the agreement in Arizona, Brnovich, Hobbs, and all the county recorders in the state were sued by the Arizona Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander for Equity Coalition on Aug. 16 over state House election integrity bills 2492 and 2243.

HB 2492 requires voters to provide proof of citizenship to vote in the state, but it doesn't take effect until Jan. 1, 2023. HB 2243, which is set to take effect on Sept. 24, would amend a voter registration law by canceling the registration of voters who move to another state or don't prove that they are state residents.

The nonprofit group filed a preliminary injunction against the latter law on Aug. 25. Last week, a federal judge accepted a joint agreement and proposed order that the coalition had reached with Brnovich, Hobbs, and the county recorders to postpone the enforcement of the voter registration amendment until Jan. 1, 2023.

"HB 2243 is a voter purge bill that targets voters of color and naturalized voters in Arizona, which could have had sweeping effects on the upcoming November election," the coalition argued.

In its preliminary injunction motion, the coalition group said the secretary of state's position was that the portion of the law canceling voter registration can't be enforced until Jan. 1, 2023, since it amends a portion of H.B. 2492, which doesn't take effect until that date.

The agreement approved by the judge is not "an admission of any wrongdoing or liability," nor is it an admission to "any allegations or the validity of any claim asserted in this case," according to the court order.

However, the agreement prevents the enforcement of "H.B. 2243 in a manner that would remove any voter's eligibility to vote in the 2022 general election or disqualify any otherwise-valid ballot on the basis of H.B. 2243." It also states that the voter registration amendment won't be enforced until Jan. 1, 2023.

Decrying the deal as a "usurpation" of legislative authority, Finchem, a vocal advocate of state election integrity reforms, told Just the News:

"This is yet another example of a consent decree that never should've happened, they are substituting executive and judicial branch action for the clear Authority of the legislative branch.

"The legislation was implemented to protect the election process, this does nothing but serve to undermine that work on public policy and the legislative authority over election law making pertaining to elections security and fairness."

On Monday, Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward retweeted a post about the agreement by Asian Americans Advancing Justice, which is representing the coalition group.

"Where is @GeneralBrnovich?" Ward asked.

Brnovich was defeated in the Republican U.S. Senate primary last month by the Trump-backed Blake Masters.

Arizona state Rep. Jake Hoffman, who sponsored HB 2243, told The Epoch Times:

"Democrats have stooped to a new level of shamefulness and depravity with their latest round of lies about Arizona's common sense laws to ensure that our elections are accessible, secure, and trustworthy.

Democrats' cries of racism are laughable on their face and serve only to shine a spotlight on the Democrat Party's long history of institutionalized racism and repeated attempts to disenfranchise millions of Americans throughout the last century and a half.

"Make no mistake about it, ensuring clean voter rolls and protecting the sanctity of Arizonans' votes by prohibiting non-citizens and non-residents from casting illegal ballots benefits every single legal voter regardless of race, gender, income, and party."

The offices of Brnovich and Hobbs did not respond to requests for comment.

Delaware Court Strikes Down State’s Voting-by-Mail Law

Link to ruling:  https://www.scribd.com/document/594653795/Delaware-court-strikes-down-voting-by-mail-as-unconstitutional

https://archive.ph/FP32N

A state court blocked voting by mail in Delaware Sept. 14 after ruling that the state’s mail-in voting practices violate the Delaware Constitution.
Barring further judicial or legislative action, the ruling means mail-in voting will not be available in upcoming general elections in Delaware on Nov. 8.
Republicans were critical of mail-in voting measures enacted at the height of the pandemic and accused election officials across the country of ignoring the U.S. Constitution and state constitutions by allowing it and promoting it heavily to the public. They claim this departure from the usual election procedures allowed Democrats to cheat.
The Democratic-controlled Delaware General Assembly hurriedly passed the voting-by-mail law in June after failing to secure enough Republican support to amend the state constitution to enshrine the policy. Lawmakers previously approved a separate voting-by-mail law during the pandemic in 2020, invoking emergency powers that allowed the statute to escape the usual constitutional scrutiny.
But lawmakers did not reference any emergency authority when passing the new law, which allowed the state judge to rule it was unconstitutional.
Former U.S. Department of Justice civil rights attorney J. Christian Adams, whose organization launched the legal challenge, hailed the court’s decision.

‘Election Officials Must Follow the Law’

“This ruling upheld the rule of law in Delaware when not long-ago election officials across the country were ignoring the law,” said Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF).
“This law violated the election protections in Delaware’s Constitution. Election officials must follow the law. When laws are followed, even losers of elections can agree with the outcomes. Consent of the governed increases when the election rules are followed,” Adams said in a statement obtained by The Epoch Times.
PILF describes itself as “the nation’s only public interest law firm dedicated wholly to election integrity.” The nonprofit organization “exists to assist states and others to aid the cause of election integrity, and fight against lawlessness in American elections.”
The Epoch Times reached out for comment to Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings, a Democrat whose office defended the 2022 law in court, but did not immediately receive a reply.

PILF filed a lawsuit earlier this year against the vote-by-mail law. The complaint alleged that Delaware’s mail-in voting and same-day registration statutes ran afoul of Delaware’s Constitution. One of the plaintiffs was whistleblower Michael Mennella, who has served as an inspector of elections for the Delaware Department of Elections.
In Higgin v. Albence, court file 2022-0641, Vice Chancellor Nathan Cook of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware ruled (pdf) that “Article V, Section 4A of the Delaware Constitution … provides for absentee voting in certain enumerated circumstances.” State courts “have consistently stated that those circumstances are exhaustive.”
As a trial judge, “I am compelled by precedent to conclude that the Vote-by-Mail Statute’s attempt to expand absentee voting to Delawareans who do not align with any of Section 4A’s categories must be rejected.”
Cook turned down the challenge to the state’s same-day registration statute but said the vote-by-mail statute “presents a much thornier issue.”

‘They Abdicated Their Responsibility’

In 2020 as pandemic-era measures curtailing individual liberties took effect, the Delaware Legislature enacted “a very similar vote-by-mail law under its emergency powers, which was upheld by this Court.” But the current statute was not justified as an emergency measure, he wrote, suggesting it did not deserve the same judicial deference.
Although the plaintiffs would probably not have standing under federal rules to challenge the mail-in voting law, they do have standing under Delaware law because they “represent various parts of the election process” and “have a substantial interest in this court reaching a decision on the merits, particularly given the fundamental nature of voting,” he wrote.
Cook wrote that in light of his ruling on the merits, “there would be irreparable harm in the absence of injunctive relief and that the balance of the equities favors entry of an injunction.”
Attorney Jane Brady, who served as co-counsel on the case, told The Associated Press that voting by mail “does not comport with the constitution.”
“I believe that the Legislature has known from day one that they needed a constitutional amendment to do this,” she said. “In my view, they abdicated their responsibility.”
Brady, a Republican, was attorney general of Delaware from 1995 to 2005.

Fulton County, Pennsylvania Sues Dominion Voting

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/09/breaking-fulton-county-pennsylvania-attorneys-sue-dominion-voting/

A major lawsuit has been submitted by Fulton County, Pennsylvania against Dominion Voting Systems on Wednesday morning.

The lawsuit focuses around violations of their contract, certification issues, connectivity issues, and alleged foreign databases and scripts found on the systems.  Some of the claims are on par with the “debunked” rumors associated with the “most secure election ever” claims, including internet connectivity, outdated security protections, remote accessibility, and random USBs inserted.

Much of the evidence disclosed is the result of an analysis and report issued by Erick Speckin.  The Gateway Pundit reported on Speckin’s research in another PA county earlier this week.

From the lawsuit:

46. On or after November 2020, Fulton County became aware of severe
anomalies in the Dominion Voting Systems due to the inaccuracy and/or inability
to reconcile voter data with votes actually cast and counted, i.e., tabulated, by the
System in Fulton County

47. On or after November 2020, Fulton County became aware of certain
factors and aspects of the Dominion Voting Systems that did not meet the
“conditions” for certification set forth in the January 2019 / February 2019
certification report


49. In addition, Fulton County was informed of additional anomalies and
problems in Dominion’s “voting” systems via an expert report written by J. Alex
Halderman in July 2021. (EXHIBIT C, the Halderman Declaration, September
21, 2021).

50. In his declaration, Halderman described numerous security
vulnerabilities in Dominion’s ICX software, including flaws that would allow
attackers to install malicious software on the ICX, either with temporary or
physical access (such as that of voters in polling places) or remotely from election
management systems. EXHIBIT C

52. At the time of that report, the author described that these
vulnerabilities still existed, and could be mitigated, but that such mitigation would
“take months for Dominion to assess the problems, develop responsive software
updates, test them, obtain any necessary approvals from the EAC and state-level
certification authorities, and distribute the new software….”

54. The report also notes that the ICX is set to be used in 2022 in at least
parts of 16 states, including Pennsylvania, with these vulnerabilities and faults
still in place

57.


c. There were non-certified database tools installed on the Dominion
Voting System;

d. There were changes made to EMS three weeks before the 2020
election; and

e. There was a lack of commonwealth L&A inspections of the
Dominion Voting Systems.

66.  …on September 15, 2022, a commissioned report revealed several deficiencies and the
absence of information and data that directly implicated and contradicted the
contractual terms, conditions, promises, and warranties provided to Fulton
County by Dominion in the Agreement and the conditions required for
certification in the Dominion Certification Report.


69. The September Report showed that external USB hard drives had been
inserted in the machines on several occasions, and that there is no known list of
approved external drives that could have been or were used or inserted into the
machines. In this regard, the report concluded that there was no
way to determine whether and to what extent these unauthorized drives
compromised the data or the system.

70. The September Report further concluded that there had been
“substantial changes” to the drives as seen with the inclusion of over 900 .dll files
and links created since the date of installation of the Dominion software and these
pathways constituted a security breach due to the introduction of an unauthorized
“script” into the Dominion voting systems used in Fulton County.

71. The September Report found that a “python script” had been installed
after the certification date of the system” and not only should such a script not
have been added to the system, but “[t]his python script can exploit and create
any number of vulnerabilities including, external access to the system, data export
of the tabulations, or introduction of other metrics not part of or allowed by the
certification process.” Id., ¶ 5. Among other findings, this constituted a direct
violation of and failure of the conditions required for certification in the
Dominion Certification Report,

72. Each of the drives are “interconnected in a system to one another” and
that this would be required to share data and counts between devices. Id., ¶ 6.
However, “[b]ecause of this networking, unauthorized access [to] any one device,
allowed unauthorized access to any device connected to the network of devices.”
Id. Among other findings, this constituted a direct violation of and failure of the
conditions required for certification in the Dominion Certification Report


73. The September Report further determined that “[a]n external IP
address that is associated with Canada is found on the Adjudication01
[workstation]” and “[t]his shows that at least one of the network devices has
connected to an external device on an external network” and that this was the
same device that the post-certification python script was found on. Id., ¶ 7.
Among other findings, this constituted a direct violation of and failure of the
conditions required for certification in the Dominion Certification Report, see
EXHIBIT B, pp. 40-50, ¶ C.

74. The log files for the Adjudication device showed an IP address of
172.102.16.22, which derives from a location in Quebec, Canada and that this
revealed a serious issue to be connected remotely to a Canadian system

75. The machines and devices only had Windows Defender dating to July
2016 and that no other updates had been made. The report concluded
that “viruses or malicious software” created after that date would not be combated
by the systems without proper updates.

76. The September Report findings confirmed that many of the
“conditions” in the certification report which were required to be met for
certification were not met and were not present before, during and after the
November 2020 election and up to the present. Among other findings, this
constituted a direct violation of and failure of the conditions required for
certification in the Dominion Certification Report


More to come as this lawsuit progresses…

EXCLUSIVE: Grassroot Election Integrity Movement Sweeps Battleground States

https://www.theepochtimes.com/exclusive-grassroot-election-integrity-movement-sweeps-battleground-states_4740686.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=ZeroHedge

At ten past five in the morning on Election Day in 2021, retired construction company owner Warren Jenkins slid into his business-casual attire in a panic, knowing he had to get to the polling station in 20 minutes. He was the only Republican poll watcher at an important precinct.

Jenkin’s wife, prescient, pre-made lunch for her husband, who then arrived at the polls to begin his 15-hour shift—from 5:30 a.m. to about 9 p.m.—just in time.

As a volunteer poll watcher in Virginia, Jenkins would run back and forth between the outdoor ballot box and the in-door voting place, observe the conduct of the election, and report irregularities and violations of the Election Code, if any, to election officials.

For his entire life, Jenkins has been somewhat of a model American man: he served in the army, built houses, and loves spending his weekends at church and with family and friends—and wasn’t into politics, at all.

But as the battleground blaze simmered at the conclusion of the 2020 election lawsuits, Jenkins still had in his mind the lingering silhouette of Zuckerbucks (private funding in election administration that was allowed in 2020 and now banned in some states), whispers of faulty mail-in ballots, and alleged—later court-confirmed—election law-flaunting. He then thought he could do more for the country as an American.

“With the Trump-Biden election, there was so much press on the dishonesty in the election. I thought I would see for myself,” Jenkins told The Epoch Times. “I’m retired now—and I thought, it was time to roll up my sleeves and to go out and to help out.”

“I felt like being a poll watcher—even though we didn’t get paid—was an important role,” Jenkins said. “I didn’t really care about the money.”

Jenkins is one of many who saw themselves as a part of a movement to defend the integrity of America’s elections, concerned that the 2020 election was not conducted well.

Some offered explanations for what went wrong in 2020—some had substantial proof—but none seemed to be able to convince the courts to rule in favor of what they were proposing, which often consisted of flipping the election results for a district, or the Biden presidency altogether.

Many realized this, so they pivoted forward.

They formed a movement, driven by the belief that citizens should participate in the election process to give rise to transparency, and that accompanying the right to vote is the right to have every legal vote counted—and faulty vote trashed.

Ground-up Movement

Jenkin’s resolve to act proved fortuitous, because just as Republicans like him across the country decided to become more involved in elections, roads were built to help them do exactly that.

Cleta Mitchell, who fought alongside former President Donald Trump in one of the 2020 election lawsuits disputing the election results in Georgia, was getting a lot of calls—and a lot of ideas—following the 2020 election.

“What has happened in 2020 was that many people across the country realized that things were not right, and that the election was not conducted according to law in many cases,” Mitchell told The Epoch Times. “And so a lot of people have said, ‘What can I do to help? What can we do to make sure this doesn’t ever happen again?’”

“As somebody who spent a lot of time in a lot of different aspects of the election, I’ve tried to say, here are things you can do: You can go to rallies and have somebody get yelled at,” Mitchell said. “Or, we can train you. We can tell you what you need to do to make sure it never happens again. And there’s plenty to do.”

Mitchell, a seasoned lawyer with a swath of experience in all corners of election issues (and a Democrat-turned-Republican), leads the Election Integrity Network, a project of the Conservative Partnership Institute, a Washington-based non-profit.

Since its launch, the network developed into a nationwide mobilization base and knowledge-sharing platform that operates at national, state, and local levels to work on election integrity initiatives, such as pushing legislation for voting security, hiring more poll watchers and election officials, and examining potential loopholes in election administration processes.

Through training and discussion “summits,” the network has kicked off state-level “coalitions” across the country, and these state coalitions would then become the headquarters of mobilizing precinct-level task forces in that state to work on election integrity projects.

“Ultimately, all elections take place at the local level,” Mitchell said when asked about her vision for launching the network. “We are asking people to become involved in apparatus at their local level, because that’s where the elections take place. And that’s where many of the problems occur, because that’s where the voting takes place.”

Getting to Work

The Election Integrity Network started humbly with weekly telephone calls, during which state coalition leaders in various battleground states would bounce ideas off of each other on how to improve election security and share the issues they spot.

But things quickly picked up speed when Lynn Taylor, a regular on these calls who leads Virginia Fair Elections, a state-level coalition in Virginia, saw that time is cutting short for her state.

“Virginia is one of two states that have statewide elections every year, Virginia and New Jersey,” Taylor said in an interview with The Epoch Times, sharing how she was concerned about the way the 2020 election was run and wanted to help improve the security of the 2021 election—the question now is how.

“The idea came from Cleta when she and I were on the phone together, and she said, ‘you really need a summit,’” Taylor said, recounting her conversation with Mitchell. “I said, ‘I don’t have the budget for that,’ and she said, ‘I do.’ Two and a half weeks later, we had a summit.”

“This was very different from the way that things had been done,” Taylor said. “You know, people have been having summits for ages, but this is the first one in my years that we actually use it for training purposes.”

With the help of Mitchell and the Election Integrity Network, Taylor organized the network’s first “Election Integrity Summit” in August 2021 in Virginia. The two-day event featured election integrity training and information for grassroots who wanted to help improve election security. These included poll observers’ recruitment, scheduling, training, and administration; a project to document potential illegal voter registrations; and a discussion on the alleged influence of private funding in the 2020 election.

During the summit, people who had already been working on related initiatives—improving security around the ballot box, analyzing election data for potential anomalies, or pushing for election integrity legislation, for example—found others scattered across Virginia working on similar things, and quickly fused into local work groups called “Election Integrity Task Forces” and began collaborating on projects on a county basis.

“The coalition was how you get involved. You work on a county basis. Then you come up to the state coalition to bring your questions … to see if other counties are running into the same things,” Taylor said, recounting how there were a little more than a dozen task forces in the state during the time of the summit, a number that quadrupled to more than 50 in a few months.

“I’ve been doing this for 26 years, and I’ve never seen people come together where they all left their logos at the door,” Taylor said. “They are more interested in the election integrity issue—and making sure that there are free and fair elections—than they are in promoting their own agenda. It is the first time I have ever seen this—in the 26 years that I’ve been working in the nonprofit arena.”

Shelley Oberlander, a Republican Precinct Captain for ten years, was leading a local election integrity task force in the Virginia coalition. After learning from the summit about the election integrity projects that she could start in her county, Oberlander started to expand her team.

After the summit, Oberlander connected with other county-level task forces and had weekly conference calls to share their experiences. Within a year, Oberlander’s team grew from a few members to six work groups, each specializing in areas of election integrity including legislation, education, data analysis, election technology, and voter administration.

“We brought it home, we put it in practice, and we got it going,” Oberlander said in an interview with The Epoch Times.

A Helpful Hand

The backstory to Oberlander’s involvement in this grassroots election integrity movement is illustrative of the other driving force behind the movement: the Republican National Committee (RNC).

As a member of a county-level GOP, Oberlander started the local election integrity team in the Loudoun County GOP at the calling of the state-level GOP, the Virginia GOP, which operates joint forces with the RNC earlier this year and started an election integrity program. Earlier this year, the Virginia GOP sent out a marching order to county-level Republican units in the state asking them to start election integrity teams.

“The RNC and Virginia GOP are encouraging unit chairs to hone in on local election integrity efforts,”  Emma Vaughn, an RNC spokesperson, told The Epoch Times in a statement.

In other words, Oberlander, as a part of the Republican Party, was able to utilize resources within the GOP establishment, as well as the Election Integrity Network to expand her task force and knowledge base.

But the RNC wasn’t always able to do this, as its hands were only recently freed.

The RNC, the powerhouse and teller machine of Republican initiatives, was legally barred from organizing and sponsoring ballot security operations like poll watching from 1982 to 2018, due to a 1982 consent decree (pdf) issued by Dickinson R. Debevoise, a judge appointed by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

This has been consequential. The consent decree meant that for nearly 40 years, the Democratic National Committee had a structural advantage over the RNC in strategizing and developing election administration infrastructure in accordance with its vision of how voting should be done.

“Because of the DNC v. RNC Consent Decree, the RNC had been shut out of most election integrity efforts for nearly four decades, which led to a lack of institutional knowledge to conduct election integrity operations,” the RNC’s 2021 election integrity report reads (pdf).

After the consent decree expired in 2018, the RNC began building infrastructure around election integrity projects. This includes spending more than 30 million on election protection efforts in battleground states across the country during the 2021 cycle, and continued building election security infrastructure for the 2022 cycle, Vaughn told The Epoch Times.

“The RNC has made a multi-million-dollar investment for the 2022 cycle, including 17 state Election Integrity directors, 35 in-state election integrity counsels, and in recruiting over 43,000 poll workers and poll watchers in battleground states across the country,” Vaughn wrote in a statement.

“The RNC works with other groups who have an interest in promoting election integrity but the party’s efforts are independent from any outside organization,” Vaughn wrote.

The Movement Ripples

The Election Integrity Network’s success in Virginia, which Mitchell calls the “Virginia model,” was promptly replicated in other states. By mid-2022, the Election Integrity Network held summits in eight battleground states—Virginia, Georgia, Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and North Carolina—and mobilized thousands to start election integrity projects at the local level, according to Mitchell.

“What we are focused on is building out the infrastructure—creating state coalitions and local election integrity task forces,” Mitchell said. “We really are measuring our success by the number of states who are up and running with statewide election integrity coalitions.

“We measure that by helping them bring together the various groups to have weekly calls, then getting their local task forces going and then getting a framework for recruiting and training poll workers, election officials and starting the working groups within each state,” Mitchell said.

According to Marshall Yates, Executive Director of the network, the network’s state-level conference calls in North Carolina, Michigan, and Georgia had over 75 in attendance, and Arizona and Pennsylvania had about 40 in attendance. The attendees are like Oberlander: they mostly consist of task force leaders who would put what they learned in the calls into practice at their local counties.

Even Congress hopped on.

“She’s a lawyer and has a lot of experience and knowledge, and she’s dogged on this,” Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.), who heads the Election Integrity Caucus with more than 70 Republican members, said of Mitchell in an interview with The Epoch Times. Tenney participates in the Election Integrity Network’s conference calls when she has time and has passed around some of the network’s materials around Congress.

“We go through with a very methodical legal analysis, and that’s what she does, which I really appreciate,” Tenney said. “We’re trying to set the record straight, and come up with solutions. We just want to make sure that people feel confident and trust their vote.”

The Bigger Picture: Uneven Playing Field

An important pretext for the project, according to Mitchell, is that the left has been building infrastructure around election administration and attempting to influence election outcomes with more effort and conviction than those of the right.

“We need conservatives to become involved and engage in the process—because the left has been systematically building their own infrastructure,” Mitchell told The Epoch Times.

Underlying this infrastructure-building Mitchell was referring to are two competing ideologies, one held by the right and another by the left, on how voting rights should be protected in a democratic society.

As articulated by J. Kenneth Blackwell and Kenneth A. Klukowski in a paper (pdf) in the Yale Law & Policy Review, improving access to voting (making voting more convenient) and improving ballot security (placing more burden on the individual voter but prioritizing the integrity of the voting process) often come into tension. The left leans toward the access approach, and the right leans toward the security approach.

“The voting system, by necessity, requires a balancing of these somewhat countervailing interests,” the paper reads.

As evidence that this balance is tilted disproportionately towards the left’s agenda, Mitchell pointed to reports by Capital Research Center (CRC), which allege a “coordinated effort” by the left to influence elections via private donations and dark money networks, such as the Arabella Advisors, the Rockefeller Foundation, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s left-leaning non-profit, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL).

The Epoch Times has reached out to the Arabella Advisors, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Center for Tech and Civic Life for comments.

Notably, Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, funneled via the CTCL $400 million to a network of nonprofits that sent advisers to local election offices across the country to become directly involved in election administration in 2020.

Critics of the CTCL like Mitchell say its maneuvers are outright election manipulation. The CRC wrote in an analysis that CTCL “consistently gave bigger grants and more money per capita to counties that voted for Biden.” The CTCL’s advisory services to local election offices were often provided in conjunction with left-leaning organizations, such as the Brennan Center for Justice. The CRC reported in August that this kind of private funding in election administration had been banned in 24 states.

But the tilted balance goes beyond Zuckerbucks. Open Secrets, a non-profit research group tracking political financing, estimated in a March 2021 report that $447 million of “dark money”—political donations with undisclosed sources—supported liberal groups at the federal level during the 2020 election cycle, while only $190 million supported conservative groups.

‘Something They Will Never Have’

According to Mitchell, however, notwithstanding the uneven playing field in favor of the left, conservatives have “something they will never have.”

“Conservatives and patriots who believe in election integrity and the rule of law—the many volunteers who form the Election Integrity Network—will never have the money the left-wing billionaires have dedicated to building their sprawling election disruption enterprise,” Mitchell said. “We will never have the sheer number of entities as the left has built over the past decade.”

“But we have something they will never have: an army of citizen patriots who love America, and are tirelessly dedicated to becoming an integral part of the election process at every local election office in the nation—who are intent upon saving and preserving our Constitutional Republic—that is the mission of the Election Integrity Network and the thousands of volunteers across the country who are part of this mission,” Mitchell added.

“That’s why Conservative Partnership Institute is proud to have launched the Election Integrity Network and why we continue to support and grow it.”

Dem City Clerk Abruptly Retires After She’s Threatened With Lawsuit For Refusing To Allow Same Number of GOP Poll Challengers As Democrats In Nov Election

https://100percentfedup.com/flint-mi-dem-city-clerk-abruptly-retires-after-shes-threatened-with-lawsuit-for-refusing-to-allow-same-number-of-gop-poll-challengers-as-democrats-in-nov-election/

On Sept. 6, Pure Integrity Michigan Elections and Attorney Erick Kaardal of the Thomas More Society, sent Flint a Demand Letter. Either balance the skewed number of election inspectors from 92% Democrat/6% Republican to 50-50 or expect legal filings.

On Sep. 8, Inez Brown, clerk of 25 years, resigned effective Sep. 30.

Sudden resignations tend to raise eyebrows, so when NPR reported the imminent departure of a major city clerk, the move garnered wide-eyed surprise. “Inez Brown has been Flint’s city clerk for 25 years. But at Wednesday night’s city council meeting, Brown announced she would be stepping down at the end of the month.”

On Sept. 6, two days before giving her three-week notice, the clerk and a who’s-who list of Flint officials received a demand letter. Either balance the city’s skewed number of election inspectors from 92% Democrat and 6% Republican to 50-50 or brace for legal filings stated the letter from Pure Integrity Michigan Elections and Attorney Erick Kaardal, Special Counsel for the Thomas More Society.

So, was the 25-year-veteran clerk’s resignation coincidence?

“I think not,” said Patrice Johnson, chair of PIME. “This is a huge win.”

Still, the clerk’s resignation raises questions as to how Flint will fill the vacancy. According to the NPR article, Flint has asked the Secretary of State to help with the approaching November elections.

“How is it that Flint could have such a weak bench that no underlings can fill a departing clerk’s shoes?” Johnson asked.

According to Michigan law, the conduct of the elections falls under the purview of county, township, or municipal clerks. The City of Flint is part of Flint Township, so asking for the township’s assistance is the next logical step. If not the township, then why not have Genesee County lend a hand?

Johnson, who hails from the corporate business world, explained that when a CEO departs in a rush, companies typically elevate an employee or contract outside leadership on a temporary basis. Turning the city’s elections over to the state seems too great a leap. “It’s equivalent to a large corporation handing the reins over to the Federal Trade Commission.”

If a person is running for office, the law states that person is prohibited from serving as an election inspector in the precinct in which he or she is running. It seems the same concept should apply for a secretary of state running for re-election.

The PIME/Thomas More Society Demand Letter stated in no uncertain terms, that “the City of Flint cease and desist spending taxpayer funds on its election inspector operations for the November 8, 2022, mid-term elections until it comes into legal compliance with the legally-required party balance for election inspectors in Flint. Michigan Compiled Laws § 168.674(2)”

“Flint for the August primary had approximately 481 election inspectors: 442 Democratic election inspectors, only 27 Republican election inspectors, and 12 other/unidentified party affiliation inspectors. The following pie chart demonstrates the stark differences in party affiliation (92% Democrat to 6% Republican).”



Now the question becomes whether Secretary of State Benson, who is up for re-election, can impartially administer an election.


Johnson suggested the Flint City Council consider hiring a new clerk who possessed the following qualifications:
A commitment to achieving and maintaining a 50-50 party balance for election inspectors
An unbiased, nonpartisan position and a willingness to do what it takes to facilitate fair and honest elections
A functional understanding of Michigan and Federal election law and know how to access the laws as needed for reference.
Outstanding references as a knowledgeable and experienced clerk
No criminal record. No felonies
Commitment to election integrity.

Upgrading election management system approved

WASHINGTON COUNTY — The Washington County Executive Committee voted to upgrade the county’s election management system, and to do a full recount of select state and federal elections, during their meeting on Wednesday.

“What we’re looking at doing is beginning to program all of our elections here, in-house, rather than contracting with [Dominion Voting Systems] as we have in the past,” said Washington County Clerk Ashley Reichert.

According to Reichert, her predecessor had previously programmed the election machines used by the county in-house, until April of 2016 when they had decided to switch to Dominion voting machines and contract the work out through Dominion.

Currently, the county has the “lite” version of the software used for the voting machines, and would need to pay for upgrading to the full version so they can start programming the machines in-house again. The county will be able to use the same voting machines with the full version of the program.

“It’s the same software, it’s just a program that gives me the capability of inputting all of the data that I compile already,” said Reichert. “Then I’m able to actually put it all together and finalize it all rather than having Dominion do so.”

The cost of upgrading the software and training staff is estimated to be up to $75,000, according to the committee report.

Reichert said this will also lead to ongoing expenses for the county for increased fees, but they will be included in her budget moving forward and would go through a budget amendment in the future.

According to Reichert, one of the fee increases is $11,000 more than the county currently pays. The other is for $20,000 for training and support in programming as they switch to doing it in-house, but it will only be for a year or so.

“I think this is something that Ashley should be commended for. I think anything we can do to pull things away from Dominion and have more control, and Ashley, who I think does a phenomenal job, to be able to have her hands on it, is a positive,” said County Executive Josh Schoemann.

“I’d like to also echo those same comments. I think we need to make our public aware that we’re bringing so much more of this control in-house, inside the county,” said County Supervisor Caroll Merry.

The committee voted unanimously to approve the use of up to $75,000 in strategic priority funds to upgrade the county’s election system management software.

The committee then voted on doing a full recount by hand of the governor, lieutenant governor and U.S. senator elections in the general election on Nov. 8.

According to Reichert, the county audits every election held, by choice.

Normally, the county will randomly select two reporting units in the county and then hand-count the ballots in two of the races in the election and compare the results with the voting machine tabulations.

“What we are suggesting doing for the 2022 general election is hand-counting the entire county as a part of an audit doing the top state race and the top federal race, which would be governor, lieutenant governor and then the U.S. Senate race, and hand-counting all of those,” said Reichert.

According to Reichert, the expense of the recount is up to $50,000, and would be paid for by the county and not the individual municipalities. The funding would come out of the strategic priority fund.

She added that she doesn’t believe the recount would cost the full $50,000, as in 2016 the full recount cost roughly $36,000.

“Here again, I think we need to commend the clerk’s office for taking a step forward on this,” said Merry. “Just another effort to reassure the voters of Washington County that we’re trying to stay ahead of any potential fraud.”

He added that it is important to show that Washington County is doing everything they can to ensure voter integrity.

“We take voter integrity, election integrity, seriously,” added County Supervisor Jodi Schulteis.

The committee voted unanimously to approve the use of up to $50,000 in strategic priority funds to be used for a full recount of the governor, lieutenant governor and U.S. Senate races by hand.

County Supervisor Chris Bossert recused himself from discussion and voting on the hand recount matter, because he is a poll worker for West Bend.

The Executive Committee’s next meeting will be held at 4 p.m. on Oct. 19 in the Herbert J. Tennies Government Center, and it will be live streamed on the county’s YouTube channel.

All the evidence in the world and ArchEtech nailed it.  Nothing will happen.  And, nothing will happen until the mainstream media and the Congressional republicans say it will happen.  So, nothing will happen.  Except Donald Trump is no longer the president.  And that is the way some folks, including republicans wanted it.

The x/y coordinates for vote bubbles on the ballots change from election to election.  When the programming in the tabulator doesn't match up with the paper ballots then you get what happened in Antrim.
