The machines went down! The tabulators failed! The paper ran out! The printer settings were wrong!
It is unbelievable…I thought there were “teams of Lawyers” ready for GOP according to Harmeet Dhillion…. She was in AZ with Kari Lake…what happened? The GOP must get tougher and louder! We know this is happening!
So sick of this s h i t
I worked as a poll worker in Maricopa yesterday. It was a f**king disgrace. I would guess that 95% of the voters were GOP (they were carrying their GOP-provided "Golden Ticket" voter recommendations). They stood in line for 4-5 hours--many with young children--to feed their completed ballots into the tabulator machines. Every once in a while a cheer would ring out around the machines as the lucky voter's ballot was actually accepted. Voters were convinced that if they allowed their ballot to be inserted into the infamous Slot #3 it would never be counted (who knows?).
The last voter left the polling place at 10 PM whereupon we began counting the "misread," spoiled, and provisional ballots. The polling place Inspector (the head honcho) was unable to get the tabulator machines to print out the results reports (these are like a retail store's cash register roll). Once all the ballots, reports (finally), and checklist items were boxes and bagged, I volunteered to drive the ballots to an intermediary collection point. A Dem and I drove to a dark parking lot where several Maricopa County Sheriffs were on guard. The folks there transferred the ballots to a large truck and gave us both chain of custody receipts. We returned to the polling place to finish the night at 12:15 AM.
Random Thoughts: 1) the printers and tabulators were tested during the Monday 11/7 polling place set up. They all worked on Monday but immediately began failing on Tuesday morning. Anyone else wonder how that happened? 2) How did this phenomenon occur simultaneously across 20% of the voting locations on the day that was expected to be a very heavy GOP Election Day vote? 3) Why shouldn't Katie Hobbs have recused herself from the management of an election in which she had a direct personal interest? 4) Why hasn't Katie Hobbs resigned in disgrace yet this morning?
The entire election process in Maricopa County and AZ in general is a f**ked up mess. I was checking in voters all day until 7 PM and the voter rolls were dirty ("I changed my information on line, why don't you have my address?" "I registered to vote but never got a new voter registration card" "I changed all my address info at the AZ MVD (DMV) and printed out the screen shots" (but their ADOT account still showed the old information so they had to vote provisionally).
I'm presuming that the felon former Maricopa County Elections weenie Adrian Fontes will be AZ's new Secretary of State. I will certainly never again volunteer to work the elections. My career in large real time information systems implementations tells me that this mess of shiite data cleansing, process chaos has to be the way it is for a reason--a bad reason. Anyone who rolled out such an expensive, flawed, and chaotic abomination in the private sector would be fired on the spot and walked off the premises. In fact, I may just resign as a GOP precinct committeeman and reclaim hundreds of hours of my personal time. America has spoken. My fellow Americans are fine with what the Dems and RINOs have served up for the past six years--and especially the last two. The saying, "You can't cheat an honest man" comes to my mind this morning. The fact that the brain dead and deeply corrupt are still running the country tells me all I need to know about my fellow Americans--and the future.
What we all feared has now happened.
And don't think for a minute they're not going to keep shutting down conservative media, sending the FBI after patriots, and doubling down on multiplying the number illegals coming across the border.
Biden will say he has a mandate to do all these things.
Why is anyone surprised at this? Deja-vu 2020 all over again. Nothing substantially changed in election security and voting procedures. Why would you expect a different outcome?
Almost every candidate that opposed The Turtle has lost or is struggling. This was meant to be a repudiation of Trump and his endorsements, and payola for old-school RINOs and Swamp Creatures.
The GOP is in collusion to maintain the status quo; quell the disrupters!
They don't even care anymore. They announce before that they are going to do it.
Thank you for all your hard work!
Totally agree.., we were told we wouldn’t know the results in PA for awhile but because they were ahead they called it??? If it was the other way around they would have said they needed more time… so many NY districts in my area in Westchester county that are so close… and We won house seats in LI and SI and upstate but Hochul and the others won hands down… I don’t buy it.
Anyway keep up the great work!
The machines have to go. If - IF - there is ever an investigation into this vote rigging, those behind it at regional, state, or national levels need to be prosecuted for sedition and treason, and if convicted, receive the normal punishment for their acts. Enough is enough. Maybe the Luddites can point the way regarding the machines....
I’m out. I’m done. Land of the free is done. Checkmate. We lose.
Why bother voting? I've gotten to that point. As a self employed contractor I actually lose money when I take time to vote it seems. I'm a veteran and there is no way I would advise my son to serve now.
These people didn't seize power in 2020 just to turn around and give it back two years later. This won't be solved by hoping that people go to jail; that's not going to happen -- ever.
Ok so where are all the LAWYERS Ronna McDaniel said were "IN PLACE". Simply repulsive that I fought for this country overseas and have to see this garbage in my backyard! REPULSIVE
As Stalin said, it's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes.
Forget voting. My time, money and effort will go toward a Convention of States. There's not much else to do. -- Thanks, Emerald, for your fearless journalism. If there were more like you, we would not be in this mess. -- "Uni-party" is the correct description.
Right on as usual Emerald! Is there any hope that we can stop this madness? The establishment aholes from both parties (moderate Dems, not the psycho left scum) don't look like they will do anything about this obvious and continuous fraud. I was thinking this morning that the last time I was truly happy was the morning after the 2016 Presidential election before the Democrats really started the fraud.
