Searcy County Arkansas switches to hand-marked paper ballots – Freedom to Tinker

Searcy County Arkansas switches to hand-marked paper ballots – Freedom to Tinker

Almost all Arkansas counties have been using ballot-marking devices (BMDs) in their elections. Searcy County has just chosen to switch to hand-marked (fill-in-the-oval) paper ballots, which will be counted by machine (for an unofficial, immediate count) and then counted by hand (for an official, certified count). Hand counting all the ballots might be impractical in larger jurisdictions, but Searcy County has a population of 7828, with 5220 registered voters and 4019 votes cast in the 2020 presidential election, so this machine-count plus hand-count system should work well.

WI Republicans Introduce Measures To Ban ERIC, ‘Zuckbucks’

WI Republicans Introduce Measures To Ban ERIC, ‘Zuckbucks’

According to a Thursday press release, Bodden and Republican Sen. Duey Stroebel’s new legislation would effectively withdraw Wisconsin from the multi-state organization, which Bodden claimed “has not been forthcoming about voter data security or their dealings with third parties.”

“The voter rolls are not cleaned up like they are supposed to be and the lack of transparency is deeply concerning,” he added.

As indicated by Bodden, ERIC enjoys an active relationship with CEIR, one of the left-wing nonprofits that poured hundreds of millions of “Zuckbucks” into local election offices leading up to the 2020 election. In its relationship with CEIR, ERIC transmits the voter-roll data it receives from states to the organization.

Upon receiving this data, CEIR then creates “targeted mailing lists and sends them back to the states to use for voter registration outreach.” This process essentially allows CEIR — a partisan nonprofit with a history of left-wing activism — to craft lists of eligible but unregistered (and likely Democrat) voters for states to register ahead of elections.

Lawsuit: New York’s Absentee Voting Law Violates Its Constitution

Lawsuit: New York’s Absentee Voting Law Violates Its Constitution

Roughly two years ago, the state legislature sent a constitutional amendment proposal to voters that would have altered the state constitution to allow for no-excuse absentee voting. During the Nov. 2, 2021, election, New Yorkers strongly rejected the proposal, with 55 percent opposing and 45 percent supporting.

As noted in Wednesday’s lawsuit, the New York legislators who sponsored the proposal even acknowledged that the state’s constitution only allows absentee voting for those who are sick or absent from their residence on Election Day.

Court: Alaska Must Forfeit Data From Leftist-Tied Voter-Roll Group

Court: Alaska Must Forfeit Data From Leftist-Tied Voter-Roll Group

“This is a landmark victory to knock down ERIC’s wall of secrecy,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement. “I want to thank the Alaska Attorney General, Treg Taylor, for his commitment to transparent elections. All other ERIC member states should take notice that the public has a right to inspect ERIC records.”

Secrecy is just one area of concern when it comes to the Becker-founded organization, however. As The Federalist and others have reported, ERIC enjoys an active relationship with the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), another Becker-founded group notorious for its interference in the 2020 election.

Sidney Powell’s Attorney Alleges Brady Violations: DA Fani Willis Withholding Key Evidence

Sidney Powell’s Attorney Alleges Brady Violations: DA Fani Willis Withholding Key Evidence

An attorney representing Sidney Powell, who has also been indicted in the Donald Trump “RICO” case brought by District Attorney Fani Willis, argued before the court last week Willis’s office has not complied with a “very, very pointed” Brady request:

“Shortly after I got into this case, I sent a very detailed Brady request to the government. Those Brady obligations…are independent of their discovery obligations as it relates to this hard drive. They have a due-process obligation to turn over to me favorable information. And I didn’t send them some blanket request saying “give me everything under the sun”. It was a very, very pointed request on August 30th that addressed two critical issues for Ms. Powell. That is, number one: that she wasn’t behind this incident in Coffee County, which forms the basis of her inclusion in this indictment. And number two: that whatever happened in Coffee County, there is ample evidence out there that it was authorized.”

As was reported originally by The Gateway Pundit in September 2022, in a separate but relevant federal case, Pearson v. Kemp, the Governor of Georgia, the Secretary of State, and members of the State Election Board all argued that “the Secretary of State has no lawful authority over election officials” in a lawsuit seeking an investigation of the Dominion Voting machines in Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee Counties counties, “obviating the issue of whether the proper officials had been named.

Sidney Powell team hits ‘troubling practices’ of Fani Willis in filing to dismiss racketeering case | Washington Examiner

“Former Trump attorney Sidney Powell bashed the “troubling practices” of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in a filing Wednesday asking for her Georgia election racketeering case to be dismissed.

Powell was accused of conspiring to commit election fraud in Coffee County after the 2020 election. However, she claims that a forensic scan of the voting machines she is accused of plotting to breach was authorized by local authorities so the case should be dismissed.”
