More predictions of the current debacle, from someone with
first-hand experience as a local office candidate:
Mark my words: We will never know the true vote count
next month on election day no matter how many times the
ballots are run through a machine or how many lawsuits
the Democrats file against the Republicans and visa versa. ...
As someone who has run for public office, put their
whole heart into the effort, along with all the volunteers
and the financial generosity of so many, I would rather have waited
four or five days for a real vote count than be cheated. I don't want
election results at the speed of a button, I want a true vote count. ...
A must is to get rid of the insidious Motor Voter Law of 1993. All
states of the Union must purge their voting rolls and start over from
scratch. There is a two year period between elections. That's more
than enough time for anyone who has a real desire to vote, to obtain a
certified birth certificate and personally get down to the county
clerk's office to register. If someone can't find those few minutes
over a two year period, then fine, keep them out of the voting booth.
