For an example of a detailed procedural audit, see Michigan’s Post-Election Audit Manual, based on legislation passed in 2012, to require a thorough procedural audit at both the state and county levels that covers numerous pre-election, Election Day and post-Election Day tasks. Matthew Masterson, former senior cybersecurity adviser at the Department of Homeland Security, says he talks every day to elections officials who are being swamped by this type of disinformation. He said Fulton County officials have denied telling the poll watchers to leave-something that the county’s elections director, Richard Barron, reiterated in a text message. This comes amid reports that Trump is asking people in his orbit about whether he could be “reinstated” as president by August, although a top adviser denied it was true. PEMBROKE, NEW HAMPSHIRE – There is no evidence of fraud or political bias in a controversial New Hampshire election where a recount and audit has drawn the interest of former President Donald Trump, auditors concluded Thursday. This week, the Washington Examiner reached out to all 25 candidates, including incumbents, who have received a Trump endorsement and asked if they view President Joe Biden’s victory as legitimate as the former president himself claims it was stolen through election fraud.
To date, he’s endorsed nine Republican senators, four candidates running for the House, one of whom is an incumbent, four party chairpeople, four gubernatorial candidates, and a handful of others vying for office. The Republican Party is demanding that Gov. Several months out of office, President Donald Trump has spent his time publicly questioning the integrity of the 2020 election while doling out endorsements ahead of the 2022 elections, consolidating his hold over the Republican Party. “While the President and his allies have used snippets of that video to imply untoward activity, review of the entire surveillance tape by both law enforcement officers with my office and fact checkers has shown that no untoward activity took place-election officials simply scanned valid ballots as they had been doing all night,” Mr. Raffensperger wrote in the letter to Congress. Those ballots provided a boost in votes favoring Mr. Biden, an expected outcome, given that Milwaukee votes strongly Democratic. Milwaukee County conducted with observers a recount of its more than 450,000 presidential ballots in November, finding President-elect Joe Biden’s lead increased by 132 votes. These states were rated “inadequate.” Six states allow electronic return but seek to contain the risk by making electronic return of voted ballots available only to a restricted group of voters (e.g., military voters in combat zones): Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Missouri and Texas.
North Dakota, an outlier, doesn’t require voter registration, though the state mandates that voters provide identification to vote. A court in Nevada concluded, “Contestants did not prove under any standard of proof that illegal votes were cast and counted, or legal votes weren’t counted at all, due to voter fraud,” particularly not in amounts large enough to raise doubts about the outcome. Claim: Batches of fraudulent votes favoring Mr. Biden were dumped and added to the results overnight. Claim: Courts didn’t examine evidence of voter fraud. Claim: In Fulton County, Georgia, suitcases of ballots were rolled out from under a table at a vote-counting site after poll watchers were sent home. In a letter sent to members of Congress on Jan. 6 to rebut false claims about the state’s handling of the election, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said an apparent miscommunication occurred between county staff and poll watchers. Earlier this week, at an event co-hosted by Black Americans for a Better Future Education Fund and the Georgia Black Republican Council, leaders called her out while also calling on American corporations – especially those headquartered in Georgia – to realize that not all blacks have the same political viewpoints.
The Republican nominee on Tuesday was awarded its six electoral votes. In video remarks in December, he said: “In Wisconsin, as an example, where we were way up on election night, they ultimately had us miraculously losing by 20,000 votes.” He said that “at 3:42 in the morning, there was this: It was a massive dump of votes. Mr. Trump’s attorneys and his allies have lost more than 50 cases about the election in federal and state courts. Federal law doesn’t require private employers to give employees paid federal holidays. ↑ A court may order a recount under Arizona law. The forensic audit in Maricopa County, Arizona has reached a new milestone. Rob Kauffman, R-Franklin County, were in Arizona to review that state’s election audit orchestrated by Senate Republicans unhappy that Trump lost Arizona. Macias reviewed the image and ascertained, based on the names and the dates, that the seven remaining deleted database files were from a post machine test that is required by statute after each election called a “logic and accuracy test,” as well as the two audits already conducted at the county by ProV&V and SLI. In some cases, judges reviewed court filings containing purported evidence of fraud and weren’t convinced.
